Per Bill I will throw out a couple rants.
1st Rant: A stalker is stalking a friend of mine.
So.... My friend has taken out a PPO out on this guy, had the cops come over numerous times, they even went to talk to him and told him to lay off the stalking. Does stalker care? Nope. He continues to leave: dog poop; fire starter kits; matches; cans; coins; brake fluid; or anything else in his car that he can throw out. Police can't arrest the guy without proof so she needs a surveillance camera to catch him. OK, how F'ed up is this?
You can't rant without a solution so how about this one:? Shouldn't there be a Stalker Clunking business where you pay them... Say $300 and a guy goes over to stalker dude and clunks him on the head with a 2x4 then says if he stalks some more, more clunkings? And then, he gets chipped... (Like you put in your dog in case it runs away), this way stalker guy/gal can be tracked.
Now, you might say this is unconstitutional and the stalker has rights. True, however, look at the rights the stalker guy is taking away. (My friend is in constant fear, because the guy is a wack job)
Lets say stalker guy gets clunked and finally decides to stop spending his time in this wacko behavior. He now has extra time to possibly become a use to society, stalkee person then doesn't have to live in constant fear and can also use her time better. Win Win.
2nd Rant: Tenant gives me ulcers.
So... I had this renter who was late on her rent every month. (In her mind she wasn't late because she gave me a check), however, her check was never good so I would go to the bank with check and try to cash it. If I just deposited it and it bounced (happened over and over to me) I got dinged. I then wise'd up and would have the cashier see if the money was in her account, if it was, I cashed it, then deposited it.
Finally, she moved out and squared up on what she owed me. I go to the bank and was surprised that the check cleared so I cashed it then deposited it. Life is good, bad renter lady is now not causing me grief, etc. etc.
Today I get a letter from my bank with the check from renter saying insufficient funds., and they deduct the money from my acct. Big F'ing F F F F F F F.
Other than these rants, life is grand.
