Tuesday Natter

The Darwin Award goes to the 2 stupid 16 year olds that tried to set my neighbours car on fire but set themselves alight instead.  Dumb and Dumber.  We live in a cul de sac and there is only 5 houses, I'm the 3rd from the bush  reserve.  This bush reserve is used by a lot of the young lads around here as a dirt bike track, there is always someone home during the week and we've all started taking photo's as they enter and exit the bush reserve.

 

Yesterday 4 of us took photo's of the same 2 boys, my neighbour 4th house from the reserve told them that he'd called the police.  Now as we live in a cul de sac we all park our cars in our garages, no cars on the street, no opportunity for anyone to help themselves, unfortunately 2nd neighbour from the reserve left his car parked unlocked out the front and it was his car that was drenched in petrol.  Dumb and Dumber are hurting a bit at the moment so the police have told us, both are in the burns unit at the local hospital, things would have been much worse for them if I hadn't woken to the sounds of laughing then a woosh and then screams.

 

This was 1.30 am got back into bed eventually around 4 am but didn't sleep.  They are 2 very lucky lads and my neighbour is lucky that all he has is a car that smells of petrol.

      The interesting thing was that they were more worried about what their Mom’s were going to say than the fact that they were in really deep schite. Where I used to live we would go through periods of our letter boxes being blown up, you could always tell when a new batch of bored teenage boys were around

        We had some sweeties that drove down our street at 60 mph (in a 30 mph zone) and used a baseball bat on our mailboxes. Most of them survive – the mailboxes, that is. We didn’t do away with any children.

          My mail box eventually got turned into Fort Knox which just made the little charmers more determined to blow it up, the mail box survived until I sold the house, the new owners replaced it with a trendy one, I wonder if it has lasted the distance.

      They are 2 very lucky lads, lucky that I heard them as my bedroom is in the back of the house if it had been a night that the “builder” slept over (I sleep better when he’s here) and he likes the bedroom door closed I wouldn’t have heard a thing. Lucky that I was able to deal with 2 lads whose clothing was on fire and lucky that I rang the ambulance on my mobile as I was running out the door GPS location of me worked as I was trying to deal with a situation that was a little beyond me. Further down the road they have been charged with a number of offenses, lucky they are both juveniles and will probably only get a slap on the wrist. Not sure they will learn any lessons from this.

    Sounds like you have had your excitement for the week. Fire and near the bush, not sure that is a good combination. But am glad you are safe, done with this and lost some sleep, but still have energy to share the news. Am up early this morning and reading your blog as if it is front page news. Getting my day started with a little tea and news. Da Natter. thanks for another interesting blog. Guess Thoughts.com isn’t dead, and that is good news also. be well. G’day.

    Assholes got what they earned. Love it when they provide their own punishment. Here in the states the neighbor would have to worry about them suing him, if you can believe that.

      What astounds me is that they would retaliate in such a manner. Thankfully I live in Australia and there is no way those idiots could sue my neighbour

        Such retaliation is a symptom of the world today. Everyone seems to feel they are owed whatever they want and when denied it then it is their right to retaliate.

      Very lucky kids that I’m a light sleeper especially as my bedroom is at the back of the house and this happened at the front of my house.

      Never I got the impression from the police that these two have been in trouble before doing stupid things like this.

        Any update on their condition?

          There burns were not as bad as I first thought should be out of hospital in a few days, one of the boys parents came to see me yesterday and thanked me for my quick thinking, both boys have been charged with arson, malicious damage and something else cannot remember what the mom said. They are lucky they are juveniles may get away with it all lightly

            I’m glad they’re not terribly hurt yet glad they’re being charged.

    Good Lord, they must share one brain cell! That’s craziness.

      I think they only share half a brain cell. When are you coming back to blog I MISS YOU.

        Miss you, too! I’ll be back one of these days. Haven’t been feeling well, and find I have lots less to bitch about since the blood-sucking nephew doesn’t live with me anymore! lol

      Stupid little boys thinking that they were going to get back at someone for having chipped them about doing something they shouldn’t do.
