It’s INSANE how people refuse to see their mistakes and will do anything to throw blame at you.

This person’s neighbor claimed that they were intruding his property and created a huge mess.

Guess karma had this person’s back.

Let’s check out the full story!

My neighbors wanted to call a professional to mark their property line, my parents agreed

This was a long time ago but I remember it clearly.

We moved in to a community with tight space in between our house and our neighbors, and we didn’t like them being able to see into our kitchen.

We put up a bunch of plants, costing thousands but my parents thought it would be worth it.

Uh oh..

A week later my parents awoke to the plants completely chopped down.

My father was furious, and marched down to our neighbors house. He told my father the plants were on his property line, therefor he had total right to take them down.

They got in an argument

He warned that if anything were to go on his property again, he would report us to the authorities immediately.

Later that day my father called the company that put in the plants, and with the warranty we could have them replanted next week for no charge.

We made sure there was no way it was on our neighbors property.

And then the unexpected happened..

However a few days later we caught him chopping them down at 2am.

We called the police upon obstruction of property, and after a chat with my neighbor he decided to call a professional and mark his property line.

My father agreed.

A few days later I got home to find orange tape in my neighbors yard.

The most absurd thing!

Apparently, his fence was 11 feet over our property line! We watched as he took down his fence, completely furious.

Within the next month we were enjoying our new space and privacy in our backyard, and my neighbor ended up losing 1/4th of his backyard.

Karma has its way.

My neighbor ended up having to pay almost 10k for the destruction of our property, and we got to plant our plants again.

Yikes! The neighbor probably wasn’t expecting that!

He got what he deserved for being so sneaky.
