    Re: Steal My Shovel, I'll Bury Your Car!

    I would probably do the same thing if that was me.

    I wish I would catch the neighbor(s) in action that let their dog crap in my lawn, I'd get a shovel and throw that into their lawn too. I have thrown tree branches over into a neighbor's yard before. She had one of her trees trimmed that was hanging over into my yard some and left those branches on my side instead of picking them up with the rest of hers so I just tossed them over the fence one night where they belonged. Same lady has ticked off the neighor next to her. Their drives are almost side by side with a small strip of grass between. Her downspouts point toward his house so he dug a trench in the grass spot and put in a drain and a tile that runs out to the curb. Well for some reason she was dumping her cat litter into the drain causing it to plug up so he told her either she stops plugging up the drain or he'll call the city and have them come out and make her re-route where her downspouts empty out to so they don't push water towards his house.

    That's awesome.

    Did this once in high school to a couple of friends, with a shovel though.

    Paranoid (creepy) guy monitoring the outside of his house with two security cameras? I'll pass on that neighborhood.

    I routinely move dog crap back to its owner's yard at night. I do not want to put it in my garbage or in my garden areas. Dual Labradors leave big messes.

    It's asinine, and really pretty sad that this dude had to bury a woman's car with snow in order to make himself feel good. A real tough guy there...

    Why not just put a note on her car window stating that he saw her take the shovel, and he'd like it back?

    Humboldt Park is not a good area. It's really not that paranoid or creepy if you know the area. There are people trying to revitalize the area, but it's still very heavily populated with gangs. Gangland on the history channel even did a show on it.

    The guys sells security surveillance systems for a living. I don't find it creepy at all, he probably gets a discount on the stuff and why wouldn't you use one at your own home so you know the product well when you sell it for a living?

    I found that my son's air soft gun is a nice deterrent to dogs trying to do their business in my yard.

    Question is...how did this end up as a news item? I couldn't watch the vid, so if they explained it in there, my apologies.

    It appears he buried her car to make her use his shovel to dig it out. Watching her spend 4 hours digging her car out is worth the price of a shovel. She's a thief, I have no love for thieves. I say good for him.

    Apparently the vis was so popular on Youtube(?), the evening news sent someone over to interview the guy.

    Contrary to popular belief, two wrongs don't make a right. I don't need to go any further than that.
