Ya know, the older I get, the less willing I am to put up with crap from other people. I used to be so much more timid, always wanting to please, make peace, keep everyone happy. Now I realize that selfish people are always going to be selfish and you might as well take care of yourself and forget worrying about whether they like you or not. This might sound like a simply thought to some of you but it took me a long time to get here. You have to remember I went to Catholic school and had very forceful parents.

I'm sitting here in my office, which is on the second story of my house and I can see my verrry difficult annoying elderly retired shop teacher, peeping Tom, trouble making nosy neighbor is using a very long pole to cut the backs of my trees. He is not allowed to cut into my property line, but he likes to do it anyway. I have this hedge against this fence that gives me privacy from his prying eyes but he likes to take his trimmers and thin it out so badly that the whole thing leans forward into my yard. I want to kick this man, seriously, I want to go over there and just haul off and give him a good kick in his shins and just turn around and walk away without even explaining myself. He deserves it for all the misery he and his wife have caused to everyone around here. His wife is worse, she's a retired gym teacher. I think that says it all right there.

I have the best vantage point here at my window to watch his every move. I told him not to cut onto my side of the fence and, ha ha, it startled the bastard. He said, "What? I can't hear you," but he knows damn well what I'm saying. Okay going to get my digital camera out and take a photo for you, hee hee. Be right back. God it feels good to not be such a victim anymore.

Here's creepy man cutting my trees. He thinks I don't notice that he's been sneaking his little pruning stick across the fence.

Well, that scared him off for a bit, hee hee. He tried to pretend he didn't see me standing on my deck taking his picture. He tried to play it off and be friendly, nope not going for it. I told him that he is not allowed to cut onto my side of the property. he knows that, he just does what he likes and hopes I'll be enough of a sucker to just roll over and let him. I scared him off for the moment but that doesn't change the fact that half of my privacy hedge is thinned out now and the other isn't. God, what is the matter with people, you'd think they had nothing more to do with their lives than think up ways to drive people crazy. Couldn't he go teach someone how to read or hold a crack baby or something ; )

Here's the shot I took from my deck. You can't see him but you can see the trees.

I love Live Journal, weeeee.
