I have a house that is in a part of town that is rough and tumble. As a matter of fact I would get beat down for just saying that. But I don’t take crap from just anybody, you must be a tough guy or know a tough guy because I know karate! Ok not really, I just don’t take crap from people on my street.
You want an example? Ok, here goes. Just the other day I was driving home and there was some thug convention in the middle of my street. So I honked the horn, and when they all looked up I waved with this bright smile and drove right through. You would have thought that I had a gun in my hand or something.
So needless to say in my ghetto there are a lot of crack whores and pimps that like to throw their trash out of their car and into my yard. This wears on my patience, it gets under my skin to the point that I might just do something about it.
I took some time to come up with a plan, I told myself that I would tell the next guy who threw trash in my yard to take it with him. One day as I was coming home from work I had to slowly pull up to the house and wait for a couple of questionable people walking in front of my house. They passed my driveway and dropped a piece of paper off the cigarette carton and I flipped out. I flipped out I tell ya!
I picked up my wife and kids, as we were going to the park, and I grabbed the trash and drove up the road. I quickly caught up to the litter bugs and rolled down my window and said, “Excuse me, you dropped this.” They said “that’s nothing we don’t need it” then I said, “ok, can you throw this in that trash can right there?” they said yes.
You see… it was trash day and every trash can on the street was out and empty. That made me even more mad, but I had fun with it and I think I made them feel pretty stupid.
I think I can come up with another idea for this problem but I need help. I know some of you have some pretty clever ideas and I need them. So get to it! Let me know what you got.
