McManders is a filthy little goblin

i was home sick on thursday and friday due to some form of stomach virus, no bueno. i slept most of thursday and ventured out only one time to visit the CVS pharmacy and purchase the largest bottle of Pepto that they had and a Gatorade. certainly this caused me to receive a quasi-sympathetic but more fearful look from the dude at the register.

on friday, i at least had a little energy to get up and move so i left the house to get a Smoothie for lunch. i walked out my front door and as i was heading down the sidewalk to my car i noticed somewhat of a pitterpatter rain like sound. turning to my left, i see the forbidden taking place in Old Man McManders' yard. McManders has his yard sprinkler going full throttle, in the middle of the day circa 11:30am on a Friday. if you are a first-time mikeandtim reader, perhaps you do not notice why this is a big deal. in my seemingly inexorable battle with McManders over City and Homeowners Association rules that no one even knows about except for us two (i have been forced to keep up to date, see previous McManders entry on how he accused me of "breaking the law", of which i was vindicated) the scene of McManders watering his yard at off hours and on the wrong day put me in disbelief. i nearly fainted due to the perplexity. perhaps i should have walked right over there and told him that he was in fact breaking the law, the same charge that caused him to march over to my door months ago making such allegations. instead, i gave the McManders estate a look of disgust, then continued on, got in my car, and headed to the Smoothie King. consider yourself fortunate McManders, next time i may not be so forgiving.

You are a wuss, officially. Righteous retribution does not poke its head out very often, you should have taken full advantage of the situation.

McManders deserves a pink flamingo or two on his outlaw lawn!
