A MAN revealed how his neighbour had been secretly letting her child into his garden to play on his swing.
The bloke revealed what had happened on Reddit, asking if he was rude for banning her.
In his post he told how his swing was in place when he moved in but he decided to refurbish it as it was unstable.
Then one day he came home to see a mum and her child on the swing.
He said: "A little over a year ago, I bought a house.
“In the front yard, there was a swing bench. It was a rubbish swing too, the seat was made out of pallets, but the structure was fine.

"So I built a new bench to swing on and enjoy. According to my girlfriend, some lady that lives around us has been letting her kid come through our yard and play on the swing. I never saw the lady or kid and just brushed it off.
"Until today. We went out to eat and when we came home, she was standing in our yard watching her kid play on our swing. When we pulled into the driveway, she scooped up her kid and started walking off.
"When I got out of the car, she yelled at me, 'I hope it's ok I let her play on your swing'. I told her no, I was not ok with it, and that she should refrain from coming onto my property again.
"She started arguing with me that if I didn't want her kid on the swing, then I should have said something sooner, and maybe I shouldn't have it in my yard if I don't want others on it."

But his girlfriend said he behaved badly and was rude to the woman – something people mainly disagreed with.
He continued: "Mind you, I've never even met this lady the entire time we've lived here.
“I kind of lost it with her and told her that she needs to take her entitled a** back to her house and learn not to touch things that don't belong to her, and set a better example for her kid.
"Having her kid play on my swing is a liability for me, especially if something were to happen and the swing was to break and/or anything else that could happen to her on my property.”

People were on his side, saying the woman had trespassed.
“The legal fact of the matter is she was trespassing on your property,” said one person.
“You don’t know who she is. You don’t know she’s not a package thief. And what happens when this kid gets older?
"Does this kid think they’ll be able to swing whenever they want? What if there’s property damage.”
