Homeowner stunned by new neighbor’s ‘offensive’ request: ‘Never ask me this again’

A man refused his neighbor’s request to pay an outstanding bill he had nothing to do with and went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to see if he overreacted. “[The neighbor] and the previous owner of my new house had their sewer line snaked and each owner would pay 50 percent,” the user said. “It seems like she (previous owner) stiffed my new neighbor on the payment.
