It took me a couple of years to lay down the law with them but once I did it has been smooth sailing for the most part. Of course I am a 6' 3" white guy with a strong voice. Interestingly enough in some of those cultures (Korean being one of them) the women rule the roost. They don't have much respect for the men (especially white men). It also helped that I learned a few phrases in their language (Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Tagalog etc.) so they think I can understand when they are jabbering away in their language. It catches them off guard when you greet them or say goodbye in their own language. They also don't like being accused of stealing, so if your daughter were able to talk to the English speakers in the house and tell them that somebody has been stealing her recycle bins it might just magically show up.

As for the cigarette butts I would collect them all and dump them on their porch. I never tolerate that sort of crap. One time a guy dropped his lit butt out of his window at a crosswalk and I picked it up and tossed it in his lap (still burning) and said "You seem to have dropped this." Then his light turned green and people started honking. He pulled into a parking lot to put his butt out. A-hole.
Thanks for the info. They must not be Korean, then, because CTHD acts like he owns the damned world. I may go over there and have a little sign language sort of chat with him. I'm going to ask my daughter, first, as she's the one who has to live next to them, not me. She may want to lay low for now and see if anything else happens. But I'll tell you what I AM going to do. I AM going to pick up those cigarette butts and dump them on his porch. I don't like the fact that he's cruising around behind the houses in the night. When I see him on his porch in the middle of the night in the dark I always smile and say "Nice night, huh?" because I know it pisses him off that I'm even talking to him. There are no English speaking people living there. Their children and grandchildren only come by on occassion.

Sitting in the woods waiting for the truck to pick up Bambi. Anyone that talks smack about Powerbelt bullets have never used them.

It's always tough waiting for new guns. I'm currently waiting to get my permits for a semi-auto 12g and 7.62x39

The 7.62x39 will most likely be a Saiga, unless my favorite gun shop is sold out, then I'll get a VZ.58 from an other shop. With the 12g I'm going with a conventional style semi-auto unless I find a good deal on a Saiga 12g.

I changed my carry load in my 3" SP101 from Blazer .357 to Hornady Critical Defense 110 gr because they're pointed for fast reloads, shorter brass for quicker ejection, & standard pressure for faster follow up shots. I'm a southpaw so I need every advantage I can get.
