(WHDH Boston)   Some people have a daily routine set for themselves. For one 76-year-old upstate NY resident, it included littering in front of the same house. Every day. For nearly three years   (whdh.com) divider line

Spite. The only think keeping him and most GOP politicians alive.

This is like the methadone clinic of rage. Instead of one deadly attack, he just lets it out a little each day.

Snowblind2010: Talk about holding a grudge.


I don't think I've ever been mad at someone for three years. Have I ditched relationships, including my own family members? Sure. But walking away is the mature thing to do, unlike littering someone's lawn for three years. That's just childish. Except if it were an actual child, three years is probably enough to outgrow the grudge.

"I found it very hard to believe that someone I knew would do something like that, especially at his age,"

I'd visit him in jail, and let him know that after he's dead and buried, every day I will leave a small pile of bird seed on his tomb stone. That way I can feed the birds and squirrels, and they can turn his final resting place into the shiat encrusted monument a turd like him deserves.

/I wouldn't do it, because unlike him, I wouldn't invest that much of myself into someone who doesn't matter. But a petty creature like him would believe it - and his impotence to stop me would eat him up inside.

I have a 'wildlife camera' arriving today, so I can find out which asshole is messing with our plants and equipment at our allotment. Petty shiat like opening our tap and draining our water storage, cutting string, walking on our cloches, snipping the tops of our garlic, throwing planks of wood onto our seedlings, removing screws holding plant frames together, spraying herbicides on our brassicas.

I won't be calling the police, I'm thinking about not even confronting them about it.

I have heard tales of other people who have had disagreements with their neighbours, in that case they were stealing their crops, so they deliberately ate some sausages that were going off, shat in a bucket, diluted that with water and sprayed it all over their strawberries just as they were getting ripe. Likewise, I have also heard of people getting loads of salt diluted in water and toxifying the soil, so you can't grow anything in it.

It is tempting, then they will have no reason to visit the allotment at all. I don't agree with making the plot itself barren or endangering someone's health though.

I shall have to think about a course of action.

Sure, at some age you have the right to not give a fark.

What you don't ever earn, whatever age you are, is the right to be a farker to other people.

At this very moment I am like a small child waiting for Santa to turn up with my camo camera. I'll test it this afternoon then go up there near dark and fit it somewhere.

They have been doing it for a couple of years now to the point where enough is enough, and I am spending money to find out who the fark they are. Curse them for making me have to actually spend money! ;)

Allotments are serious business, people get killed over them.

Lea Adri-Soejoko, the allotment secretary and treasurer, was found dead at 2am on Tuesday 28 February 2017. She was lying on a wooden pallet, her face covered with a blue coat, still wearing her wellington boots. The starter cord of the lawnmower had been pulled out to its fullest extent and wrapped tightly around her neck. Lea had been strangled by a fellow allotment holder, a man whose plot was only metres from hers, someone she had known for nearly a decade.

Splitting hairs again, but Lake View is by Buffalo, which is NOT 'Upstate NY' unless one considers anything slightly north of NYC as 'Upstate'.

That said in the context of it being Western New York, a guy expressing a grudge about union rule disagreements by being petty seems on par for the mindset of the area.

Embarrassment by internet?   I would recommend two cameras.  The first to be used to capture the person and the second to catch them when they destroy the first because they figured out the camera location due to the recording angle and rip it down.  Then you can really get some better charges going and deeper internet scarlet letter branding on the bastard

I was under the impression that anything north of Westchester County was "upstate".  Where does Western NY begin?  What would Ithaca be considered?  (Not trying to be an arse, I'm genuinely curious).

That happened at a State Historic Site I worked at.  A visitor backed his car into a State vehicle and then took off.  My co-workers grabbed the wildlife camera that faces the parking lot to get images of the culprit.  All of the photos were of my co-workers installing the camera.

They will never see the footage, they won't even know there is any. This is purely so I know who the fark they are.
