I thought the cold weather would force them inside and out of eyesight and ear shot... Not so.
We started the day off with the little yappy dog yapping a 6am- at least they are getting out of bed to go to work.
Then, one of them decides its a good day to run a chain saw for about an hour in the side yard right outside my living room window for no apparent reason.
Tonight was one of the more comical nights though- A full scale family feud took place in the driveway, there was no shame in airing all the dirty laundry at full volume for the entire neighborhood to hear. If I knew ahead of time, I would have filled my yard with lawn chairs and sold tickets.
Then, one of the teenagers, who isn't a bad kid, but doesn't have much of a chance in life because of his parents, came over to borrow some ice. No big deal... right? He says their machine broke and asks for a big bag of ice. OK.. but there are 4 stores within easy walking distance where they can buy a huge bag of ice for a dollar. I tell him this, and ask him if he wants a dollar to go buy ice, or a ziplock back of ice... he chooses the ice. Critical thinking fail.
A few hours later, (just a few minutes ago) the adult son (who is dumber than a box of rocks... I tried to like the kid, he wanted to join the Army but failed the ASVAB ) was outside kicking the snot out of his car yelling at somebody on the phone. I watched his temper tantrum with some delight, until he got a little out of hand smashing the windows out of the car. I had to leave my warm office and go tell him to clean the glass up- He did and stormed off in his now windowless car. He had to of been cold, where ever he went. I'm sure he was cussing me too, as I made sure every last piece of glass was swept up.
I emailed the out of town owner of the house to see if they stopped paying rent yet. (he's a friend) He got a little pissy, I must of touched a nerve. I also offered to be the contractor that guts the house and restores it to habitable condition after the inevitable eviction.
