Default This is a hypothetical story/question, What would you do

     

I asked this at TT as well
Ok just wondering here..

There are two neighbors, both are friendly to each other most of the time, an occasional argument or disagreement happens every once in awhile. Through the years one neighbor helps the other more often the ot, the receiving neighbor never reciprocates. But mind you both neighbors are not perfect angels. The good neighbor always feels uneasy for one reason or another.

Then suddenly out of the blue the one neighbor hurts or otherwise does harm to the good neighbor for no apparent reason or a reason that is justified.

What would you do (Being the Good Neighbor)?


Just Fyi, This is not a trick Religious question for all you that would assume so and this is not about me or me or my neighbors. Personally I abhor my neighbors and have already tortured and maimed them

No I get along great with all my neighbors :zap

This is a metaphoric story, a presumption a what if...

I'd kick the bad neighbor's ***, thats what i'd do.

Actually, i think a more subtle move should be made. Ooh, here is a good one... put up a nice white wood fence around your property, and on HIS side, paint the fence orange, or purple, or some other hideous color. That'd be grand.

Probably not the response you were looking for...

pramitol his yard. it will kill everything and NOTHING will grow for a year or more. be creative and spell out your feelings in his lawn. the top foot or so of soil will have to be removed before replanting, reseeding of they want it fixed within the year time. it is so much fun watching them try and fix it. new sod -- dead. more new sod-- dead.

i have never done this, of course, especially to the guy that stiffed me 7 grand. nope wasn't me.

When the bad nieghbor goes on a vacation, break into his/her house and turn on every water appliance possible so that the neighbors well will run dry...could cost up to 25,000 to fix....even more if they live on a hill!

I would have a little wall to wall counseling with the toad. But for you being from California, I guess you need to go through the courts. Because he sure as heck would after the counseling session.

Tell the neighbor that they rubbed you the wrong way and have nothing to do with them. If the neighbor later wants to reconcile, give them the chance, but cover all of the bases--things are one sided, they never reciprocate, etc.. Finish by saying that you do not need friends like that and you will give them the opportunity to make the friendship more bidirectional, but if they revert back to the old way, you will shun them again as you do not need them in the first place.


Depends on what they do. I could be inclined to pummel the twirp if he pulled something really ridiculous.

yes the general public can buy soil sterilants. they are named differently.

and to who posted about weed be gone ot's only a selective herbicide. it it 2,4,D ,dicamba, and MCPP. it is safe on most grasses (if applied properly) and is used to only get rid of the weeds. You's be helping your neighbor by de weeding his yard.

Very intresting responces expecially the weed eater stuff on the lawn

But here is the Metaphoric unforlded

Now what you think

Ok here is the Story unfolded from its metaphoric Code Now tell me what you think....

There are two neighbors, both are friendly to each other most of the time, an occasional argument or disagreement happens every once in awhile.
The Two Neighbors are the US and Saudi Ariabia

Through the years one neighbor helps the other more often the ot, the receiving neighbor never reciprocates. But mind you both neighbors are not perfect angels. The good neighbor always feels uneasy for one reason or another.

Then suddenly out of the blue the one neighbor hurts or otherwise does harm to the good neighbor for no apparent reason or a reason that is justified.
The Recent information that there are direct links to Saudi's government and 911 directly


What would you do (Being the Good Neighbor)?
