Meet our Curtain-less Crusader, a 30+ female who values natural light and an open view from her home office. She's been living in her current abode for nearly six years, enjoying the freedom of her open curtains. But recently, her peace was disrupted when her neighbors voiced discomfort about her always-visible windows. They claim they've stopped using their patio because they believe she's watching them. 😲 Is our protagonist just a lover of natural light, or is there a breach of neighborly etiquette here? Let's delve into the story...

The Great Curtain Conundrum: A Tale of Open Windows and Uncomfortable Neighbors

Our Curtain-less Crusader, a 30+ female working from home, has found herself in a peculiar situation. Her love for natural light and open views has led to a neighborly dispute. Her neighbors claim discomfort over her always-visible windows, even going so far as to stop using their patio. Our protagonist, however, insists she's too busy to pay them any attention. Friends have chimed in with mixed opinions, leaving her questioning her stance. Is she just a lover of natural light, or has she crossed a boundary? Let's see what the internet has to say about this... 🤔
