    Loitering teens

    So, I'm officially an old man. We have a corner lot in our neighborhood and there is a group of kids that keep parking their mom's explorer on by the side of our house and then just hang out smoking out the doors or riding their dumb little bikes on the street. They're not really making noise or causing damage, but its just irritating to have them out there and I wish they'd leave their cig butts and empty Gatorade bottles on someone else's lawn. Any ideas for persuading these morons to take it elsewhere without having to call the cops on them?

    Just say hey guys we have an older couple that lives in the neighborhood and they wanted me to ask if you could hangout on a different street. Or give them beer and liquor and tell them to go have fun. They won't be back.

    Re: Loitering teens

    Two choices:

    - Start being the creepy "old" guy who wants to hang out with them. Talk about stuff that was cool maybe three or four years ago, just so you seem out-of-date but not retro.
    - Start going outside while wearing your boxers and bathrobe.

    Kids won't want to hang around either of those guys.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Make sure that the spray hits the street also.

    I would also add that you should start scratching certain parts of you body. Ideally your stomach, ***, or groin.
