Default Well , am I stupid or what ?

About a year go , we had a new neighbor move in just down the hill from us .Him and his younger wife decided to force their friend ship upon us .

Heavy drinker and a bit of a pest . He asked me for a few favors , tools and things to do some major repairs on there house . Being the good neighbor , I told him I do not loan tools but I would help him .

I went to town , about a 25 minute drive and the neighbor had come to my shop to borrow tools to fix something . He took it upon him self to go into my shop and take it .

I live with an old friend that I have known since we were kids . He's handicapped and not in the best physical shape . This neighbor is a rather large fellow , 240-ish , 6+ ft. Tall and an ass . Braggart , tough guy , bully , you know the type .

I went down to confront the guy and get my tools back . I walk with a hand made cane which I do need since my last surgery recently . As usual ., the guy was being a total ass was getting a little pushy ! I cracked him in the shin , hard , then behind the knees and he went down !

61 years old , two years probation and the first time I ever went to jail . There goes my sainthood down the drain . This is very embarrassing because there is no glory in what I did . It will be expunged but it happened . This guy has got to go ,
He makes me nervous and I will not not live in fear of anything or anybody !

Sorry to all my friends here , but in my physical state , I could have hurt him much worse with that little old walking stick than I did .

Sounds like old school therapy to me. Sometimes you got to do what you have to do.


Most people would have called the cops and they wouldn't be able to do anything.

You didn't swallow your pride, you handled it, it was justly yours. he deserved it!

My neighbors are asses to but I wish you were mine.

and they never took into consideration the idiot walked onto your property and took property that didn't belong to him?

I can see myself in that situation. I'd have done the same...but did you get your tools back?

If you were in fear of bodily harm, self defense could come into play.

I don't get how some folks can feel like they are entitled to a favor from you just because they live near by. A favor, is exactly that, a kindness granted at someones whim or because of a sense of developing good relations. If someone is not inclined to extend a favor, that is up to them, as long as they don't expect one in turn. Grown adults, should be able to understand this.

Usually for me a first favor is a given. If I get burned in the process, we're done. If I have someone steal my stuff in the process, they are going to get to make it right, one way or the other. Seems fair.
