Woman claims neighbours got 'so sick' of seeing her swimming in back garden they put up a 'huge wall'
| Last updated
If you live in close proximity to your neighbours, then chances are you'll have got in some sort of dispute with them at one point or another.
Maybe you accidentally parked on their flowerbed, or had the music a little too loud one night? Or maybe, like 'Bikini Nicole', you just spent too long swimming and enjoying your own back garden in a bikini.
Admittedly you'd need a pool and good weather to relate to this scenario, so it probably wouldn't happen in England. But it seems to be exactly what's happened with Nicole, who describes herself as a 'spicy Texas girl' who is 'always laughing and smiling'.
As well as laughing and smiling, Nicole enjoys spending a lot of her time in a bikini - as made clear by her name on TikTok.
She regularly shares videos of herself hanging out by the pool, showing off her swimsuits and soaking up the sun, and has garnered an audience of more than 12,000 people who love to get each update as it comes.
Unfortunately, it seems Nicole's neighbours aren't so keen on seeing what she gets up to each day.
In one post shared earlier this year, the TikToker pointed the camera towards the boundary between her house and her neighbour's, which was marked with a wooden fence.
The neighbour's house seems to be positioned slightly higher than Nicole's, meaning it looks down on to her garden and pool.
This isn't necessarily an uncommon layout, and both residents could simply avert their eyes to make sure the other has their privacy, but the neighbours decided to take action on their view of Nicole's garden by building an even bigger fence on their side of the land.
The huge barrier could be seen blocking out almost all of the neighbour's home from Nicole's point of view, meaning they'd be less likely to see her hanging out in the garden, where, she admitted, she sometimes 'wears significantly less' than a bikini.
Alongside the post, she wrote: "When they got so sick of seeing me scantily clad, they built a wall."
In another video, Nicole explained that she'd just learned about the trope of the 'naked neighbour' - someone who is 'always in front of their windows just t**s out'. If you have one of these, you'll know exactly what she's talking about.
However, Nicole added: "And then I realised I don't have one. I was like, wait a minute, I am the naked neighbour."
"Notice the huge shades my neighbours put up because I am THAT neighbour!" she said.
Nicole's realisation could be used as a lesson - if you don't have a naked neighbour, and the people around you seem to be closing their curtains more than necessary, maybe you're that neighbour?
