  • I have no idea how someone could care so much about someone else having Christmas lights up year round.  My neighbors have various colored lights up year round all over the front of their place.  Why should I give a shiat?  If she's 84 I might ask if she wants me to help her take them down, but that would be about the most I'd care.

    If they install Xmas lights on MY windows or MY porch or MY dog, then I'll care.  Maybe.  Not if they're tasteful I guess, and seasonable.  Probably.

    I digress.  The letter was really, really crass, but how was it threatening enough that the police really care?  Maybe the "don't make me tell you again" was the part that was threatening enough they want to investigate?  Maybe he just meant, "don't make me tell you again or I'll start decorating my house with strippers and taco trucks."  To me, strippers and taco trucks all over a neighborhood sounds like a great place to live, but I bet it would drive that woman crazy.

    This.  Well not the strippers and taco trucks, but I digress.

    Sure makes the sleep deprived snowplow driver Dogg seem downright civil.  However Dogg is not from Ohio either, which works to his behalf.  If the person wants the lights down so bad, they could've done it last night during the storm.
  • Someone who cars that much that a LOL in the neighborhood likes her Christmas lights too much is a bit deranged if you ask me. When that somewhat deranged tells a LOL "don't make me tell you again", it's time to involve the police. So fingerprint the idiotic note and go have a talk with the sender. Then send them a bill for the cost. Call it the "asshat tax".
  • I can't take my lights down until the rest of my jack-o-lantern rots away.
  • do you want the family man or do you want the swingin' man?

    family man

    you get the family man
    family man
    FAMILY man
    with your glances my way, takin no chance on the new day
    family man,with your life all planned;
    your little sand castle built, smilin through your guilt, family man
    here i come
    here i come family man
    i come to infect; i come to rape your women;
    i come to take your children into the street;
    i come for YOU family man, with your christmas lights already up,
    your such a MAN when your puttin up your christmas lights,
    first on the block;
  • I'd leave 'em up longer just to piss the neighbor off.  YOU don't tell me when to take my lights off of my house.  Unless we live in some Nazi HOA, then I'll bend over and let you fark me in the ass while I take them down to suit your sensibilities.
  • Having your lights up all year is kinda white trashy, but it's not my house so I don't care what my neighbours do.

    Threatening little old ladies in anonymous notes is douchebaggery of the highest order. Doing so over Xmas lights!? Time for anger management classes.
  • I hope her neighbors put all their Christmas lights back up.

    EXACTLY!
  • jaylectricity: I can't take my lights down until the rest of my jack-o-lantern rots away.


    I can't take mine down until the last Easter egg is found.
  • I'm glad the cops are still investigation.

    Use your leftover 4th of July fireworks to speed that up significantly.

    I wouldn't mess with her if you know what's good for you.

    Guess I shouldn't take mine down until I sober up from St Patrick's Day.

    *snerk*
  • They're not Christmas lights. They're now Valentine's St Paddy's April Fools Cinco de Mayo [...] lights.

    /fark you, crazy person
  • Yeaaahh; threatening L.O.Ls ( little old ladies); probably some busy body neighbor threw the hedges.

    / mind they don't shoot you with an armidilla gun

    // intentional misspelling; it's a reference to a movie
  • Eh, if you leave your Christmas lights up all year round then they're no longer Christmas lights, ya know? When everyone's special, no one is.
  • They're not Christmas lights, they're holiday lights. There is a holiday of some sort every month but August. Right now, they are in transition from being President's Day lights to being St. Patrick's day lights.
  • Bill_Wick's_Friend: Having your lights up all year is kinda white trashy


    I don't think "white trash" applies in this case.
  • i thought presidents day lights were appropriate... no? well ok, but what about millard fillmore?
  • LordOfThePings: I'm glad the cops are still investigation.


    That whole sentence is gold.

    "Police have not named suspect, but said they are still investigation."
  • Old woman loving life while she still can. Go granny go.

    Neighbor two houses over has had at least 1huge tow-behind camper in his driveway since moving in 4 years ago. Sometimes they have 2. Never 0, not once. Looks like hell. Fark 'em. Evidently they are too stupid to just sell the thing they are not using and enjoy the money.

    That's racist! And she didn't look white either.

    But yeah - her house, her lights. She can do what she wants.

    If you get so upset about xmas lights on your neighbors house that you threaten an old lady you should seek help.

    Now, if you set up speakers in front of your house and crank up some Xmas music and stand in front of my house which is across the street so you can watch your specially audio-synchronized light show late at night and after it's over start yelling encore I will open the door and suggest an encore is not in order.

    They did it again this year, but not so late at night and they kept the volume down so I didn't say a word to them.
