LOL! That video is awesome! I especially loved how when he got out of the car and saw the carnage, he just sunk his head and kicked a rock! And it couldn't have been Aaron...the guy ran from the camera to the car when he began recording.

I really have a great disdain for people who believe it's their right to take something you worked hard for. Even if it has little value, you still worked for it.

Thanks again for pulling through and being a judgmental prick. Should we outlaw trailer parks and houses that cost less than $50k?

Maybe a law that prohibits living in a van, or bus?

You're an elitist ass.

Re: Important

As a former apartment dweller, some people prefer apartments over houses. Many do, like my mom, because the grass is usually cut and taken care of. Also because if something breaks, they fix it. If it wasn't for the fact that Sarah bought a house, we would have been renting an apartment (we will be moving in 10-15 years when her parents want less land to take care of. They will swap homes with us. 3 acres of land, attached 2 car garage, detached two car garage, small barn, yard barn and green house). Also, not all apartment complexes have to allow anyone in. If they do not accept housing assistance, they can be picky who they let in to a point. When I lived with my mom, we looked at one apartment complex. We got denied because her credit sucks. In the end it was the best as the complex got flooded in 2008 (as did the apartments where I lived also).

I am about 80% positive it was my neighbors kid he is around 35ish no job always strung out on something. he and his friend are always walking the ally picking garbage to scrap.

luckily i have calmed down a lot since i had kids. but there is still a little part of me that wants to wait outside every night till they try again and just whoop the everliving shit out of them, and just call the cops from inside the house and say i woke up to dogs barking and saw someone getting there ass kicked outside.

I just dont like the idea of someone walking by checking car doors every night... its really mine and my wifes fault. we got home last night and both kids were sleeping so she carried one and i had the other, neither of us locked the doors.

Re: Important

Okay need everyone's opinion on something. About a month ago I sold a 4.0 motor to a woman in town. On July 19th she paid me in full for the motor and said she would be over soon to pick it up. Well guess what, the motor is still sitting here and I haven't heard anything since the 19th. Half tempted to start adding on a storage fee. What would you guys do? Sell it and give her money back out what? Tired of it being in the way.

Do you still have her number?

I'd call her and tell her the options...

Unfortunately...locking the doors keeps a lot of people out of your car. I have seen broken windows to get at something (usually in a parking lot where there's an event), normally if the door is locked they move on to the next vehicle. Sucks, but its the society that we live in.

What kills me are the people that leave their gps up in the window of their car and then LEAVE it on all night...it's almost saying, here, come steal me.
