Aug. 15th, 2006

Indeed, there was a complaint by a neighbor. I'm pretty sure I know which one, since he hasn't been exactly shy about his complaints in the past.

We've reached an agreement, since I am working on the porch that I can keep the construction equipment and materials out, and they will give me a lot more leeway on the porch since it's an active project. I do have to renew the permit (which was planned anyway) and clean up the rest of the junk, but because I am actually doing the work, they're a lot more lenient.

I am taking suggestions as to what to do about the neighbor though. Nothing I can get arrested for, and nothing of any permanent damage.

YOU do nothing about the neighbor. Merely inform others who it is and we'll they'll figure it out.

Aw, geez, it would probably be unethical to let people know the address of 3627 Aldrich Ave. South Minneapolis MN 55409, because it's entirely possible that they'd get signed up for all sorts of magazine subscriptions or various "free beer neighborhood kegger" parties that might happen.

You want to get together and Fork his Lawn? I'd be interested.

That might be a simple solution and it doesn't have to involve the Marmot.... Unless he wants to play!

Then (at a later date) we could play "Ding Dong Ditch!", I haven't done that in years!

The giggles ensue.

Lawn Gnomes.

Place them on his lawn. When he removes them, you add more.

They are pretty cheap in bulk.

Heh.

I have to think that might not go over well with the neighbors. Though I suppose that's the point.

I just don't want to cause any permanent damage, and he has a little kid.

The night before a hot humid day sprinkle his lawn with powdered milk. Once the dew and heat get at it it is a smell not easily forgotten.

Of course, if they are up wind you may want to try something else.

Let's see ... hmmm .... how to make people go away ...

Fish guts dumped in a discrete location (under a window) right before a hot summer day ...

Call the Jehovah Witnesses, tell them you really want to know more about their religion and invite them over to your neighbors

Membership to NAMBLA? NORML?

Locate puticine and apply to anything they own ... the smell NEVER, EVER goes away ...

If you have a person's phone number, write it down, including the area code on every $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 you get. Spend them. Get your friends to do the same.

Send off a request in the neighbor's name to numerous foriegn postage stamp bureaus requesting ordering information, to be put on mailing lists, etc. The response is quite astounding. (Not that I would know.)

Get change of address cards from the post office and change the neighbor's address to someplace like Guam.

Burn a hole in someone's driveway using thermite.

Good luck.

I think change of address cards could lead back to the culprit. Seriously. Not a smart idea.
