And if you think that your habits and behaviour go un-noticed by those living next to you, then this Mumsnet thread will probably make for alarming reading.

One particular neighbour who loved to listen to everybody’s business was renamed Nosy McNosy’ by annoyed residents.
Meanwhile, an unfriendly woman was dubbed the ‘Ice Queen.’
