Sentence: My good neighbours had become goadneighbours, and now I was wishing for good fences. It all began when Mike got a promotion. He and his wife bought an SUV that they were always washing, waxing, and admiring while they took pictures of each other standing by it. They landscaped their yard, put in a pool, and built a sundeck. But everything was for show and pictures, and now the rest of us neighbours were tired of them harassing us. Suddenly our yards weren’t good enough, our houses needed painting and we were bringing down the neighbourhood. Any more goadneigbourly advice on how to take care of my weeds on my lawn or the cracks in my driveway, and I might just build that fence.

Etymology: GOAD: to keep irritating or annoying someone until they react GOOD NEIGHBOURS
