- Forms of Harassment from your Neighbour
- What action you can take about harassment
We often make use of the word harassment in our everyday language and will say things like, "please, don't harass me, I'm having a bad day" - but what does harassment and the definitions of harassment actually mean?
One dictionary definition of harassment is:
"to annoy persistently" (Source: Merriam-Webster)
In a lot of cases persistent, unwanted and un-requested annoyance from your neighbour can fall straight into this description.
Harassment constitutes any form of behaviour which is unwanted - this could range differently for many people and can represent anything from unpleasant and mildly irritating behaviour, right up to actual and extreme violence which is physically based.
Harassment and Bullying can include many variances, but often people experience behaviour which is sexually based, racially orientated or harassment of a homophobic kind. Behaviour which is personally targeted and aimed at individuals is also common placed.
At Neighbours From Hell in Britain and on our forums we often learn about harassment that takes these forms and stems from an individual's neighbours.
Harassment can also be aimed at people through their membership of different organisations (say, their Trade Union, professional body or political persuasions).
Bullying and Harassment are often both totally unpredictable and very wearing behaviour for any person to experience and live with on a regular or intermittent basis. It is totally unacceptable and a cowardly and anti-social practice.
Harassment can come in many forms. Whether these unwanted attentions come from your neighbour, in the workplace, at home, in social settings, this is unwanted behaviour and attention that can constitute racial, sexual, physical and verbal/non-verbal harassment.
Some forms of harassment and sexual assault can be classed as criminal offences and can be reportable to the Police.
Stalking is another separate or related issue depending on particular circumstances.
When harassment also includes the perpetrator (e.g. the source of the harassment and could be your neighbour) watching you, constantly following you, making constant contact with you despite your requests not to, or you are receiving unwanted gifts/presents; the term of 'stalking' may be applicable and more appropriate in your case.
