LMAO. You have to love the irony. Good for you though - that was a nice thing to do.

casio, no good deed goes unpunished. You have a positive karmic balance from this, though and if your neighbor thinks it through, he may change his thoughts on this mattter.

you did the right thing, no matter what he thinks.

I saw a neighbors garage door open and sent him a text. He was not home but asked me to see if his truck was unlocked on the driveway. It was, so I used the clicker in it to close his garage.

You live in Maine. I thought everyone in Maine was friendly and ate lobsters and smacked mosquitoes.

You know, they say if you want to kill somebody and get away with it, you just give them a bike then run over them with a car.

Obviously you have never been to Maine this time of the year.... it's not the mosquitoes you need to worry about. It's the Maine state bird, the BLACK FLY.
