Homeowner blown away by neighbor’s ‘ridiculous’ yard maintenance request: ‘He is very entitled’

A man refuses to clear snow from his neighbor’s driveway. 

He shared the situation on Reddit’s “Am I the A******? (AITA)” forum. His new neighbors don’t have any equipment to mow their lawn or remove snow from the driveway. When it did snow, the neighbors demanded that he snow blow their lawn for them. But the Reddit poster told them it wasn’t his job to do their housework. 

“Our old neighbor, Mr. B., passed away last year,” he explained. “They eventually sold the house, and the new neighbors moved into the house in the fall. We noticed they didn’t have any lawn mowers or snow blowers, so we told them that they should get those things sooner rather than later since we typically start getting snow in November.”

“A few times when I was out mowing, the neighbor asked me to mow their lawn, and I obliged but told him that they should really consider getting their own yard tools or calling a service. We just had a huge snowfall and are expected to get more this weekend.”

Despite the warnings, the neighbors did not prepare for the poor weather. 

“The neighbor came to my house early on Sunday morning and banged on my door asking when I was going to be out snow blowing as they need to get to work,” the Reddit poster wrote. “I told the neighbors that I was not going out to shovel/snow blow any time soon, so they may want to dig their cars out so they could get to work. He told me that they didn’t have any shovels and explained that they were relying on me to come over and take care of it.”

“I told him that I was not planning on doing that, told him that he could borrow a shovel if he would like, but I was going back to bed. When I did go out to shovel and snow blow several hours later, I did not do their driveway. The neighbors are now angry at me, and he confronted me outside, saying that it was my fault that they had to call out of work.”

Redditors thought the neighbors were completely wrong. 

“I really want to know why they feel so damned entitled. It’s absurd on a ridiculous level,” a user commented

“Next time they bang on your door and demand you to clear the drive, tell them it’ll cost,” another wrote

“He is very entitled. Stop doing anything for him,” someone wrote
