So I have this spoiled little brat energetic neighbor kid.
In the past week he threw or kicked some of his footballs over the fence into my garden.
My neighbor said I shouldn't give them back if he didn't ask for them because that would teach him not to throw his stuff into my garden.
So the kid already came to my door last week, but I wasn't at home, which pissed him off, according to my neighbor.
Today, he knocked on my door again and I opened, but the kid is only 5 years old and very shy, so he just stood there.
His mom, keeping an eye on him from her own front door, said "what do we say to the neighbor?"
And he just said "...my balls..."
I lost my sh*t and just laughed at him "Hahaha your balls huh? Muwhahaha! "
Luckily, his mom could laugh about it too, so I didn't come across as a complete a**hole making fun of little kids.
I told him I'd throw his balls back over the fence and his mother told him to thank me, which he sort of did under his breath.
He now has his balls back and I doubt he'll be throwing them in my garden again
Or you could have invited him over to spend time in your garden, planting, repairing, etc so as to appreciate that which others toil over. If he had a vested interest in your garden, he would be less likely to toss toys over the fence.

You are going to allow that a to a 5 years old takes your weed... is he not a bit too young to get that high (even in Holland)?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
You gotta be careful doing that kind of thing these days: somebody is going to ... umm ... assume the worst about your reasons ...
