Heh, the place was a duplex and the landlord lived next door. He was a nosy lil' B# too! With an wallet so tight a diamond couldn't penetrate it.
Imagine his pucker factor when he saw the door open just long enough to launch a flaming appliance out the door and go bouncing across the yard!! He
was knocking at the door faster than the Road Runner on amphetamines! I loved screwing with that dude's mind! LOL!
The next day I got some 2x4's and laid them up against a door frame upstairs. Then I sawed a couple of them in half with a skil saw and started
driving some 16d framing nails into them against the door frame with my 28oz framing hammer. Once again he was at the door faster than a lightning
bolt. His eyes were as big as saucers when he asked what the hell I was doing. Told him I didn't like the upstairs bathroom so I was tearing it out
and remodeling it. LOLOL! He freaked out so bad I thought he was gonna' have a stroke. "I..I...I...you..I..have to come in and..and..inspect
the, the, house...right this instant!!!"
Told him no problem, but asked if he had a good heavy sledge hammer I could borrow first. Stepped out
the way and I don't think he touched even one step going up the stairs. Nothing there (I'd stuck the boards in the closet). Psyche!! LOL!
Had this big 55 gallon drum BBQ out in the back yard. I used to love going out there at night acting like I was gonna grill something, but instead
I'd jump about a whole jug of lighter fluid in the BBQ and torch it. WOOOSH!! The whole block would light up. Flames 30 feet high. He'd come
running out, tiny little fire extinguisher in hand (he was too cheap to buy a decent one), and me and my buddy would be falling down laughing...got
him every single time with that one! LOL!
