Nosey neighbour or neighbourhood watch?

Neighbour: (round for a cup of tea) Have you been away Nick?
Nick: erm, when?
Neighbour: Last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.
Nick: Yes, I was!
Neighbour: Thought so.
Nick: how did you know?
Neighbour: I noticed your car was gone. Normally both your cars are gone by 8.00am and back by 7.00pm, except for Fridays when Rachel’s car is normally in the drive. I saw that your car was gone for 3 week nights in a row and wondered where you had gone.
Nick: (a bit freaked out) errr yes. I was away for work
Me: Did you think we’d had a row and Nick has left me?
Neighbour: (laughs) I’m not nosey or anything, I just like to check that everything is in order and I notice when the routine is disrupted.
Cat: (bites neighbour really hard on the wrist.)
Me: (smirks) Maggie! Don’t bite the neighbours!

My vote is nosey neighbor. We have one of those, too. He says to us, "I noticed you moved your cars around." Hmmm....it must be universal.

Listen lovey, your neighbour is not a problem until they begin to call you a family of gypsies!!!! Tell them that you're really into bondage, the dark arts and wife swapping and then unless you're really unlucky they may stay away!!!!
