So I have lived at my current house for a couple of years now, and I live in a neighborhood of 80% retiree's and about 20% young families. Directly
across the street lives an old retired couple with their mentally retarded son. I would say that they are in their 70's or so, and their son is
So these people are really strange, and they don't really do anything but leave their house every once in a while in their minivan, and the old man
drives a neon. He is old a and crippled. He usually waves at me and says hi, sometimes we chat about the weather.
The other day he was out getting in his car, as I was out front smoking a cig, when he said hi, and started talking about politics. I asked him what
he did for a living and he said he was "Ex Chicago Mob". I was like "seriously". It was like he was proud of it. He seems to be a staunch
democrat with an Obama sticker on his car. We have often talked about our distaste for the Bush administration. Not that it really matters, but I
feel kinda strange living across the street from a self proclaimed mafioso, that may have done bad things to people his whole life.
If you were in the mob, I don't think you would want to advertise it like that, especially since the guy does not know me at all. It could be that
he is kinda scared, and wants me to think he is a badass and not to be messed with. I don't know.
I'm not a fan of the mafia, and have a complete and total dislike for the gangsters of all kinds, to say the least.
What do you all think?
