We finished half of the lift on my Wagoneer yesterday and I was pretty stoked. Took a while and had a bunch of little snags. I was really impressed by the way it looked. Then this morning I got a visit from the code enforcement officer. WTF???? They told me I can't run a business from my house which I wasnt. Told me I can't do major repairs at my house which I wasn't. Why can't people mind their own damn business!?! I guess my cherry has been popped.

With so many people out of jobs, me included I find it odd that 'NOW' they want to crack down on businesses being run at home. ****ers.

Congrats. on losing your virginity, :thumbup Little disturbing that you lost it to a code enforcement officer though? I say find the asshat that told on you a report piddly shit about them like they sell drugs out of there house, prostitutes in the house, and say they molest little children. While your doing that order them some nice porn PM I have some ideas.

Best part is people in this neighborhood sell drugs, let pit bulls run without leashes, disagreements so that cops are called. I mean I'm a nurse and I have a job and I'm not running anything outta my house. I'm working on my own crap. Granted I did have my big 60 gallon compressor running and using my air chisel to get some rivets off but I mean its not a daily thing! The officer said I was reportedly using pneumatic tools at all hours and working on vehicles at my house. If it was the losers across the street...its ON.

close the door on your garage and they can't see in.

people who turn you in are just pissed because you can wrench and it costs them 800 bucks for a alternator.

I had that same problem when doing my lift- the little old lady living next to me was board and called the city every day on me because she had nothing better to do, and didn't like looking at my 'ghetto' truck every day. At the time I had 33s out back and 38s out front....stupid bitch, made my life hell for months.

Every time I got a warning or ticket from the city about my truck that was in my back yard, NOT even visible from the street (clearly from her house/back yard though)....I would find a problem with the pantera's or mustangs (which had open long tubes on at the time) engine which would require me to have it at high revs for long periods of time...:rofl:

Find out who called on you, they usually don't drive around neighborhoods with out tips....
Good luck.

Cool, while your at it ask those fawkers when they are going to pay your mortgage since they want to control what goes on in your garage.

ive been in trouble with these clowns so many times, in my neighborhood they've got old people that ride around all day and they are supposedly looking for crime, but they also will turn you in for code enforcement violations.

LOL my neighbors see me working on my crap, they come over with a case of beer, next thing you know the whole neighbor hood is over, bustin out the grill, throwin burgers and dogs on, and... well that may be the reason my Bronco still isn't running and why my neighbors J20 rebuild isn't complete.

So far I've been pretty lucky with stuff, but then again, I haven't really torn down my vehicles for what I've had to do with them. My neighbors pretty much leave me well enough alone. I'm only a couple hours away. Maybe those Rat Farkers need a 3am visitation. Nothing seems to settle people down better than a 3am wake up chit chat. It really lets them see things from a different perspective.

Well now they'll have another reason to love me. Just bought a car trailer :) I've tried two doors thus far today. This weekend I'm going house to house....I have a feeling is the stupid bastard next to us. He lives there with his sister (in their 50s). I've lived here a year and NEVER seen him. And HIS car doesn't appear to move....hmm. I can't imagine the people across the street would do it they have a car with no tag on it in the driveway and an S10 in the backyard that hasn't moved in probably a decade.

Them code enforcement people used to ticket and fine my brother every other day for his s10 (not running) being parked in the street. I was dropping him off late one night and there they were about to give him another one. I got off my truck and walked over and told him what the situation was with the truck. He said "well how about pushing the truck up the driveway" I said "how about cutting him some slack and not ticketing him anymore, or next time were gonna do more than talk". That seemed to work because he didn't get anymore tickets. Now don't go thinking I threatened some old guy, we were right about the same age. But having a nice little chat with them might work. Now in my neighborhood, you don't ever see those basterds. Got fined twice $500 each thime for my wifes van being parked in the street, and once for $100 for me parking in the rocks. Made a phone call, mentioned all the stuff they don't take care of in the neighborhood and said I don't appreciate paying your mortgage and mine so things need to fixed around here. My fines were reduced, and the street lights and walking path lights were fixed.
