theorellior: Haha, CSB time. When I was a young punk I lived in a rent house and my roomies and I were less than immediate with the lawn work. One spring it had rained for a week straight and the weeds were getting tall, so I figured I'd mow the lawn on Saturday when I'd be home from work and the sun would be out. Lo and behold, I woke up early Saturday morning to the sound of a lawnmower. There were a pair of survivalists living next door to us, and the woman had decided to mow our lawn because we obviously were too lazy to do it. So I calmly baked a nice loaf of cornbread while she did my lawn work for me, and when she was done and had put her mower away, I went over profusely apologizing and mentioning I had been planning to do that all week, and here's a small token of my thanks. The look on her face was priceless. She never tried doing that again.

Wow.  How nasty was that cornbread?

TheOther: Your cornbread must suck or she would have been mowing your lawn every weekend.

As I mentioned above, it wasn't the cornbread, it was being called out for being a meddling asshole.

So, you gift them with a nice, freshly baked loaf of corn bread in order to call them out as meddling assholes? I guess fight passive-aggressive with passive-aggressive, LOL

The 'meddlin' asshole neighbor's version:

Those kids next door, they're just kids and renters and haven't learned about taking care of property.  (We knew it was a bad thing when the house was sold to be rental property instead of to a homeowner.) Anyway, they do go to school and have jobs and, I suppose, not much time is left after parties and whatnot, but they had really let the lawn go...and you know how weeds next door can overrun a lawn in no time.  So, one Saturday morning, I got my lawn mower out and just mowed the lawn for them... without them having to ask or anything! was the Christian thing to do.  Anyway, I had just finished, and one those kids stepped out and nicely thanked me for mowing and gave me a fresh-baked loaf of wasn't as good as yours, of they were really just good-hearted kids and, don't you know, they never let the lawn get that bad again!  So I guess the lesson was worth the work, especially with cornbread...even if it wasnt as good as yours.

America. We're a bunch of hostile, ignorant, and pessimistic paranoids.

Seriously, someone's doing you a favor by mowing your lawn and you call the cops on them? I mean, if he came over at 3 a.m. and woke me up, I'd be livid, but even that wouldn't get me to call the cops. Or, if he was also shooting at neighborhood kids, okay, maybe I'd call the cops then.

Tip? Well, if he's drunk I might take him a beer and some nibbly things. If he's naked and at least some what attractive, I'd think a beej might be in order. Were he a Jew, I'd slip him five bucks or so. Black, well, then I'd totally call the cops.

Just toss a PBR can at him. If he's drunk he won't care what brand it is.

Oh! Or you could make it a game: Leave a trail of cheap beer to someone else's lawn, with a lawnmower already gassed up and ready to go and see if he does it again!

If he did a good enough job, I'd give him the whole shaft.
