Across the street from a rather mouthy and ill-mannered neighbor of mine is a home for sale. A few days ago, there was a person at this home looking around; perhaps he was a realtor, appraiser, or a home inspector. So, my obnoxious neighbor, who seems to have a need to make everybody else's business his own, decides to approach this stranger and see what he's up to. Before not long, an argument ensued, most likely instigated by my fairly crude neighbor.

Last night my neighbor's automobile was vandalized. Almost every body panel had been deeply scratched -- essentially the vehicle needs to be completely repainted. My neighbor contacted the police, but they cannot do much of anything without witnesses.

So, it's probably wise in a place like CA to be respectful of others, particularly when you don't know too much about who you're dealing with and they know where you live. An expensive lesson for my big-mouthed neighbor.

Big mouth neighbor will think twice before instigating arguments with strangers.
