Wahl...last night someone put an old piece of tire, a big, unidentifiable piece of plastic and a tied up Chedraui bag of plastic stuff ...on top of my old junker Taurus that we keep parked in front of the house until we figure out what to do with it. I think that was supposed to be a message. The note writer prolly is hinting that I should have the Taurus taken to the dump also. Ja Ja.

I hope this isn't going to turn into some ridiculous little trash war because if this happens again, I reckon I'll have to put my own note up (but not on my newly painted gate, ahem) and clue in these people that they are barking up de wrong tree taking out their hostility on us.

This is getting ridiculous, I know.

the key word is 'clueless'. It did take a big effort, and awareness in the states before people stopped throwing litter around everywhere, burn piles and creating garbage dumps. Remember the poor Indian crying campaign.


They stopped? Tires and old fridges are like rabbits. Throw one in a state forest and overnight it will multiply!

Wow. That's pretty passive-aggressive.

Not funny at all if it's happening to you. Someone is being very $hi**y and aggressive, not to mention acting like a pig with their trash that they don't want to take responsibility for. You're in the middle of one of my worst nightmares, Carey - the neighbor wars. Can't we all just get along? Sheesh... good luck with those morons.

Well, it's not that bad. And so far no more stuff piled on the car. I only brought it up because I wanted some input on creative ways to fix was is, indeed, an on-going problem.

Thanks for all the suggestions and comments. I will report how the new system works once I get it installed in case any one else decides to try this.

I think if you know who the offender is, you should start fighting back and taking your pet's feces and tossing a big weeks supply on their walk way each week.

If that does not help, then you need to start dumping this that will take them hours to clean up... Maybe dump a big can of paint on their driveway

if that does not work, take the things they leave u and toss it back onto their property.

Let's not get carried away here, Mark. It's not that big a deal and will soon be resolved. If I knew who had posted the note, I would have gone and spoken with them personally. There are less than a handful of gringos living on this block but I can still only speculate who is the one that's trying to pin the tail on this donkey. Ja Ja

Mark,

Why do I guess that your expression of neighbor displeasure might be delivered by a 55 gr BT BTHP to the back of the gourd some night? :o
