LA Good Question: Dealing With Nosy Neighbors?

062408nosyneighbor01.jpgWe've all likely dealt with an overly curious, if not nosy, neighbor sometime in our lives. How to deal with them?

"Dear ATLA,
My neighbor seems to have made my life their uninvited concern. I often see them peering over our fence, or sneaking peeks through our facing kitchen windows. It's not so much creepy (it's an elderly woman known as the neighborhood busy body) as annoying, since I always feels like I'm being watched and judged. We have privacy shades, but we like to allow the summer light into the house when possible. What can I do? Sincerely, Matilda"
