    Neighbor came over last week behaving P.O.ed and wanted to give me grief. My well was over flowing and flooding his pasture and drowning his apple orchard. Well is 100 yards from my house but on his land. Sure enough it's flowing over. I've a history of plumbing and well repair but not the time at the moment. So I called a professional. Then went to the bank to get funds lined up, $5-$10 thousand if it went bad. Just happened to not to go to work today so was here to help. We started digging, by hand. What we found is a pipe next to my well had rusted through and would fill my housing up to overflow. Here is the good part. The line belonged to the same neighbor. Really broke my heart to go over and give him the news. I'm not a complete A-h*L* and did not charge him for my labor as he did volunteer to pay for the service call.

    Its nice when that sort of stuff ends well.
    Having had issues in the past with the various renters next door , I wish it was always so.
    It always pays to be polite when presenting your query to your neighbors , 'cause you never know what will happen or what the root cause of the issue is in the first place ...

    My neighbor called the police because my then 13 year old step daughter was playing with the cat laser toy and they said we were pointing "sniper rifles" at them.

    Oh, if they only knew.

    Right, you don't use lasers, you use IR designators for your targeting of neighbors.

    Being an anal orifice about something like that is a sign of insecurity.
