Moral dilemma


This morning I took delivery of a small bicycle, clearly destined as a Christmas present for the shouty kids next door.The box is a bit like this one. Each morning for the entirety of the last three months the period from 6.45 - 8.00 has been littered with noise, swearing, shouting, slammed doors and chaos in a consistent unfolding daily morning drama taking place next door.

I slightly resent this. I mean I am always awake anyway but it's not nice, and just last week they filled my bin up too, about 12 days ahead of the collection. I don't mind that two or three days before but not twelve days!

Anyhow my dilemma - post the little note to say I have it (it is a note that does not reveal what it is, in case the kids read it), or sell the bike and buy wine as a recompense to the daily interruption and bin-space theft?

You should ride it up and down the street in a dirty santa outfit (see Trading places) with a bottle of whiskey, shouting at the kids, that it would of been there's if they weren’t such little fuckers!

Top plan! I have a bottle of Jim Beam. Would that do?

I did read another blogger does this regularly, she makes sure she puts another name instead of her signature and would deny it all..nuff said...

I say sell it... deny all knowledge! Why they getting a bike anyway - doesnt sound like they've been very good children (Santa must be getting soft in his old age!)

Chop it up into 12 individual pieces and post it back to them 1 day at a time ... Who needs a partridge in a pear tree anyway ...

I like Walsh's suggestion very much

BUT!

If you want to be really devilish...

open the box and remove the pedals.

SCARGOSUN! You're a baaaaad girl! You had better do something extra nice to balance this evil (but great!) thought out, otherwise Santa will scoot right over your State!
