Fun with neighbors

So last night, before I turned in, I watched one of the new renters back their SUV into another renter's car. Lifted the car a bit, looked like it was probably serious. The folks who did it looked like they were coming from some Halloween gathering (female driver was in a pirate/wench costume) and they knew they did it because the SUV owner dusted off the trailer hitch. This afternoon, the owners of the hit vehicle were out there looking at their car, frowning. I go out there, look at them for a while, and ask if someone tagged their car. When they asked if I knew who did it, I knew that the SUV folks didn't man up and leave a note or tell them they did it, so I told them.

D-bags. Renters, bah.

I am pretty sure that spying on your neighbors while they are banging is illegal.

Video evidence.

Hey! Not all renters are bad! I could own a house but then I'd have three less bikes. And that's no way to live.

Tenants are a crapshoot. You might get people who are good and keep the place up, or you might get ones who will trash the rented area as a joke, and be too poor to bother suing.
