8 Things Your Neighbors Won't Tell You (PHOTOS)

Surprise, surprise.

Neighbors are great for keeping an eye on your home when you are out of town, gossiping about local news and taking in your newspaper for you. (That is unless they don't give it back!)

Although we rely on the people that live next door to us for a lot of things, there are some things that neighbors won't tell you. Whether they are taking advantage of your WiFi or secretly hating your barking Chihuahua, there are several things that are most likely left unsaid. Like:

That they really don't think your baby's so cute.
Your neighbor probably isn't thrilled when your kid screams/ dog howls all night long. But they probably won't blurt it out unless they're going on 48 hours with no sleep.
