    Slow-leaking the tires is probably the most effective retribution. No real damage unless the fool is so drunk he tries to drive away, just a little aggravation getting them pumped up again. "Who, me? I dindonuffin!" Of course, the carload of yamdankees who started some crap at a local beer joint on their way to spring break a few years back learned the hard way about Buck knives and tire sidewalls. Nobody saw anything! I sold them four used tires the next morning after they spent the rest of the night in their disabled car.

    Unlike Dan C., I don't have great neighbors, so I definitely feel your pain Sarge.

    While my more vindictive side would likely cry out for blood, I pretty much come down with Zee, Tuba and Jerm on this one. Why would I cause more aggravation, possibly risk my own money and/or freedom just to 'win' over a bunch of dirtbags who have no relevance in my life? (I'm talking about my neighbors here)

    I won't tell you how to live your life, but I think a call to the local tow company BEFORE going next door to politely inform the owners of the vehicle is likely FAR more effective and will get the message across loud and clear. Hell, you don't even have to actually call for a tow truck, just make them think you have and will continue to in the future. Folks who don't care about inconveniencing others usually have a great deal of interest in not inconveniencing themselves.

    We have the same kind of driveway blocking behavior all the time, at work in front of the fire trucks.:roll: Usually handled by asking/ helping the driver to push the broken down vehicle the extra 15-20 feet to get it out of the way. My all time favorite was the company stringing new wire for the phone or cable company, who decided that running the wire across our drive and leaving it lay for a while was a good idea. Convenient parking lot and all that, when asked by the Lt. how long they planned on leaving it there they said 45 minutes to an hour. That is when I nicely asked how well the wire held up to having 73,000 pounds roll across it, because if we get a call, my job is to go, not worry about wire. It was gone in 5 minutes.


    We usually will give abandoned vehicles a week,(in the lot), then they get towed.

    Amazing what a quarter of a turn CCW on a valve core will do- - - - -usually takes a couple of hours to go totally flat. Leaving a party three sheets in the wind and finding four flat tires would be a real education- - - - -especially if the cops had been given a little heads-up about the potential for a few DUI collars being available in a little while. Revenge is a dish best served COLD!

    And if the tire valves have those funky valves that don't screw out, a sharpened twig shoved in to get the air flowing works just as well.

    Dead fish on the back seat floor?

    This reminds me of a time when I was a little younger and dumber as well. We had a neighbor behind the apartment complex I lived in right before we had our second child. The apartments were a one building complex of 9 units backing up against a house. The house was clearly inhabited by low lifes that most likely were dealing based on the traffic during the night and day. They liked to have parties with loud music until the morning and had three pit bulls that barked incessantly...I had just started my first business and traded a guy a roof and some cash for a boat. I too was frustrated by the way their actions were affecting my pregnant wife. We were late in the summer and the dog fish (Small sharks) were especially hard on the salmon gear that year, they have no natural predators in our area and the salmon hatcheries give them a huge food source with the tiny salmon streaming from the rivers, which allows them to swell in numbers to level not naturally found, and they really aren't edible. Locals will usually cut them open before throwing them back if they start to overrun an area, circle of life and all. We may have had a few too many while fishing and decided to keep a few dog fish if we caught them for "entertainment."....we got three...so at about 12am we snuck up onto the roof of the complex and hurled 3 sharks about 4' long into their back yard...when they got up the next morning and found one of their dogs chewing on a 4' long shark carcass they were a little unnerved to say the least...the exclamations and curses were not easily missed. They were much more low key after that...

    An unopened can of sardines fits nicely between a heat shield and a catalytic converter. In a couple of miles, the can heats up and explodes. The stench of burned fish on the exhaust rivals most skunks, and lasts for weeks!

    Pretty sure - not 100% though - I shot their dog. At least, it looked like theirs. Could not have been, but dunno. We were bringing in some groceries and the dog came out of no where and jumped on my pregnant wife and knocked her to the ground, and was in full attack and maul mode. So I shot the dog. Scared the hell out of the wife - first thing I grabbed that was loaded was the .30-06 (because I could have shot her, right?). So I guess I'll have the pleasure of seeing if it was their dog tomorrow. Too late to be bothered now.

    Wife is okay, though.

    Sorry, but when you f*** with my wife, I get a little hostile. Of course, she can definitely hold her own. And trust me (whoever said it) I do not underestimate the power of a hormonal pregnant woman. I've had my fair share of run ins already...

    Yeah, she's good. Couple of cuts that I cleaned and wrapped up, but otherwise good. Well scratches I should say, from the nails. Nothing deep or anything, I just didn't want to run the risk of them getting infected.

    Of course I did! Sheriff already knows - and they know I've been having issues with these morons. And my wife is a Sheriff's Deputy, so, I'm pretty sure when she tells them the exact same thing I did, well, I don't think we'll have much issue that department.

    I'm real protective of my family. Either by blood or by uniform or by loyalty. If we're family, I'll defend you to my last breath. There's a whole lotta boys in the 82nd that would testify to that. This sniper had their backs on more than one occasion.

    Definitely. As soon as I made sure she was okay, I was on the phone to the Sheriff's. I'm not 100% sure if it was their dog or not, but it definitely looked like it. Perhaps they'll move...

    Wow, that is a heck of a couple of days in your neighborhood, glad the wife is OK. How are the rest of the neighbors, besides the new ones, reacting?

    Oh the rest of our neighbors are fine. One saw the dog attack the wife, he came over to make sure she was okay. The other two could give a flying flip about anything. They're about useless as on a bull.

    Something just crossed my mind, if it was their dog, I bet a lawyer could get you some $$ for the pain, and mental anguish your wife and you suffered because of the vicious, unprovoked attack :devil:

    Regarding Jerry's sardine can on the catalytic converter, there's another one that lasts nearly forever and is ALWAYS there when the AC or heat is on and the blower running.

    Take a half dozen bait shrimp or a couple of squid and puree them in a blender, and make sure you clean the blender immediately. Pour this into a gallon milk jug and add a quart of water. Cap off tightly and set where it can get some sun OUTSIDE. After about a week pour this liquid into the vent intake on the car. Holding your breath is really important doing this, REALLY important. Water drains out the drain hole of the vent intake, but the stinky stuff stays. It's the gift that keeps on giving! :roll2:
