What do I do, I went outside and found that the roofers doing...
my neighbors roofers (new roof going up) were plugged into my outdoor electric socket? I unplugged their cord and asked why they did it, they didn't have a good answer...I took down their company name, number. What should I do?

call their boss- your neighbor. they can actually just fiegn ignorance? make your neighbor pay. fuck him
how long do you think they were on it? call the electric company to come out and take a reading. they can see the increased activity from power tools and hold the construction company responsible.

Cut all cords that cross the property line next time.
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

I think it was an honest mistake. I don't think the kids will do that again.

Great way to show that neighborly love.

Maybe one day when your water pipes burst, and your ass is stinking to high heaven from lack of bathing, you can go throw down a cool $100 bucks on a hotel room instead of being able to use your neighbors shower.

i mean you must have saved yourself at least 75 cents worth of electricity by being a complete asshat.

Were you home at the time they started the job? I mean, if they are old enough to do the roofing, old enough to discover they needed an alternative electricity supply, and old enough to figure out you could provide this, wouldn't they be old enough to knock on your door and ask?

If your car was out of gas would they be cool with you hopping in theirs and taking off?

lock out/tag out your outdoor outlets. then if anyone from the roofing contractor breaks the lock out/tag out, its instant termination from the job.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 701482

You're right. The guys should have asked permission. I understand their thoughts at the moment, though: they were tunnel-vision on gettin the roofing job done, saw an electric outlet, and went for it. No malice intended, I'm sure, just a lack of consideration in forgetting to ask permission.

If that's the worst today brings, it won't have been a bad day! hf

 Quoting: Ugly Betty

Thanks for the wide range of options. I'm leaning more towards #1. But my blood pressure did rise a bit when I saw that cord running across the lawn and over to their work site. WTF was the first thing I thought.

What makes me lean towards #2 is that one time long ago, I was bitten by a neighbors dog. Neighbor never leashed the dog, and my arm became the toy for the dog that day. Just a bit bruised, not much surface blood. Anyway, I confronted this neighbor and they promised to leash the dog at all times going forward. Well, 2 months later, the same dog bit a young kid in the neighborhood. I felt stupid for not doing more.

The concrete guys had used my sisters water to fill their pumpers for the 2500 sqft pour next door, during a water shortage and winter averaging, over water usage fee and city fines cost them a grand, my sister found out and raised a royal brewwha-ha with the builder and the city. The city charged the concrete guys (permits are a good thing for once) They tried to use my sisters water again, that did not turn out well my sister is short with a like fuse and damn crazy like a chihuahua dog.
