Harmless Practical Jokes on Neighbors

My neighbor and I have a constant battle going on, playing relatively harmless practical jokes on one another. Some of you may recall the story of me placing one of those rainbow (gay pride) decals on the back window of his Jeep Grand Cherokee (he rode around with it for about 3 weeks, getting all manner of stares and even cat-calls without knowing what was up).

A few weeks ago, while our 'hood was having its annual garage sale event, he put his old gas grill out on his driveway with a "Free Grill" sign on it. It was a piece of junk, and no one in their right mind would want it (and no one did). I was in the midst of some landscaping work in my backyard that day, and had a very small pile of dirt left on my driveway, not more than a cubic foot...it was mostly just spillage from my utility trailer that I'd swept up. To ridicule him, I put a sign on the mound that said "Free Dirt" and left it there all day, for all the shoppers to see.

That wasn't enough, though. Yesterday, I had to replace a toilet in one of our bathrooms. To make a long story short, all afternoon, under the pine tree in his front yard, there sat a very used toilet with a "Free Toilet" sign on it. To see the neighbors and other passers-by slow to gawk at it filled my afternoon with much humor.

His wife didn't seem to happy when she discovered it.

Re: Harmless Practical Jokes on Neighbors

It seems more like you're abusing the neighbors. Has he retaliated or it a one-sided battle.

I did like the toilet idea ...nice touch.


I'm sure it wouldn't be too long before you break out the flaming bag of dog

I'm up on him by a few "points," so my wife is a little worried about the forthcoming retribution.

You should have put a magazine rack and a roll of bum-wad alongside of it.

Or take it a step further and sit out there on it while reading the paper.

That sounds pretty funny. The neighbors around us do the same thing but the jokes are a bit more invasive. When the couple next to us got married, a few of the other guys broke into their house and set up a film-studio in their bedroom with lights and all. They also took all the labels off of their canned goods.

This could escalate into something really bad happening!

Re: Harmless Practical Jokes on Neighbors

If he trusts you enough to let you into his house, you could really have some fun. For example, removing the shower head and dropping a few food color tablets in it, then replacing it makes for an interesting shower. Or using parental locks (if available) on their cable to lock them out of everything. Nothing harmful or destructive, but irratating none-the-less. I also had a friend who got a bunch of lawn gnomes at a garage sale set them up in a buddies yard like they were having a battle. Imagine about 15 lawn gnomes duking it out, the wounded laying in pieces all over the lawn.

The only one worth mentioning is the realtor's for sale sign he put in my yard while we were out of town one weekend. I just like to keep an upper hand, let him know that he should think twice before messing with me.

Yeah, one of our buddies snuck into our apartment and did the color-thing to my roommate's shower. He went to shower the next morning and all I heard was a string of profanity come out of the bathroom...ha ha!

I guess I should ask...was the "very used toilet" very-used as in it had seen a lot of butts? Or was it very-used as in very recently used, with poop stewing in it on his front lawn?

The former. Even I have my limits.
