Woman forced to 'hide from neighbours' after awkward mishap

By David Aspinall & Charlotte Hadfield

A woman was left feeling "mortified" after she accidentally flashed her new neighbours on meeting them for the first time.

Olivia Gomez was putting her bins out on August 3 when she spotted the new family who had moved in next door to her in Warrington, only days earlier.

Hilarious footage shows the 26-year-old dental nurse chatting to them about 'builders parking dreadfully' nearby, before she lifted her finger into the air to point in the correct direction.

Forgetting she was carrying her recycling as well, the corner of the bag lifted Olivia's blue floaty dress into the air, leaving a surprise first impression on her new neighbours.

Fortunately for Olivia, the family laughed it off as she joked 'that's my whole dignity gone' while patting the bottom of her dress down again.

Olivia said: "I was absolutely mortified but tried to play it cool and just carry on as if nothing had happened.

"Fortunately they're really lovely and just cackled about it. I just said 'that's my whole dignity gone'.

"They'd only moved in a day or so before so this was my first time meeting them."

Olivia said: "I was just making polite conversation while taking the bins out about some of the builders parking terribly because I've moved on to a new build site.

"I had the wheelie bin in my left hand and the recycling in my right and the bag just caught my dress as I pointed at something.

"After that I swiftly ended the conversation, put my bin out and hid from them for a week."

Olivia's hilarious footage has been viewed more than 330,000 times online with some commenters saying they would sell the house afterwards.

One person said: "I would have simply put my house on the market after this bestie."

Another commenter joked: "I think it's love thy neighbour not flash thy neighbour."

One person wrote: "Hahaha there's breaking the ice and there's showing the whole iceberg. Brilliant!"

Another commenter said: "You're their favourite neighbour now!"
