I just want to prank someone. The plan is to build a couple dozen dicks, put them in a bin for transport and place them around his bushes just off the sidewalk.
Is it considered vandalism? If he doesn’t like them he can just step on them afterall?
Edit: RIP inbox, honestly everyone I can’t stop laughing at the responses, thank you so much I really needed this, I’ll update when I do the ”art installation”.
I will try to truncate this as much as possible. This has been going on for over a year.
Sep 2019 - stamped concrete patio installed by an LLC company. cost was about $6000. after initially looking at it, it looked good.
A few weeks later, it had rained and I noticed that there was a large section along the patio where it meets the house/foundation that had standing water. I am (and was) fully aware that stamped concrete can have "birdbaths" where the stamped patterns are. But this was definitely not that - this was a much larger area (about 6 ft. long) that spanned several stamping pattern lengths.
I took pictures of the water collection and even videos showing the water flowing toward the house when poured several feet away from the foundation. The owner of the company took weeks to come out and have a look and tried to talk to me as if I was stupid. He offered to put in a saw cut length wise that ran the distance of the entire patio, but refused to redo the section of the patio (rip out and pour again). Knowing that the saw cut would only be a temporary band-aid that would eventually have its own problems, I declined.
A few days later, I left a review on Google reviews of my experience, explaining the problems I was having along with pictures showing the water collection against the house. The owner responded with a very rude response insulting my wife and me, and saying something along the lines of (paraphrasing) "If you think there's a problem, that's why we have a legal system!" So that's what I did.
Oct 2019 - file small claims suit against them. at the court office, the clerk specifically told me to go ahead and put both the owner's name AND the company LLC name on the affidavit, so i did that. several months go by before i learned that the certified mail was ignored and the court sent an officer to hand deliver the subpoena to the owner of the company. shortly after, i learned that the defendant hired a lawyer who had the case pulled from small claims court to general court. it is my understanding now that this was done because "a company can't represent itself" and i put the company name on the affidavit. but had i known this would be the case, i wouldn't have done that. i'm wondering why the clerk not only didn't tell me a company can't be taken to small claims court, but actually advised me to put the company name on the affidavit. In any case - what's done is done.
Unfortunately my wife and I could not (and cannot) afford a lawyer to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Why? How do you manage to just ignore the fact that the person next to you may be ill but just not showing symptoms yet? Or maybe never have symptoms but can still infect, do you not have alarms going off in your head?
I’ve seen so many absolutely crowded restaurants lately that I wonder if anyone even cares about the cases and deaths anymore.

Summary: I bought a house in 2017 and it had a concrete pad in the back that collected water against my foundation. In 2018, I decided it had to go and rented a jack hammer to remove it. Then in 2019, I dug out the hole to drain water away from my house, lined it with landscape fabric, and filled it with gravel. Then in 2020 I put big bluestone pavers on top with river rock in between and now I have a lovely modern patio that doubles as a place for collecting excess rainwater until it can soak into the earth! Overall I love it and have gained a lovely outdoor space that maybe one day will be used for dinner parties again.
Rough total cost: $3500 to $4000 with rentals thrown in.
