we have ok neighbours, but the woman next door has her adult son living wiht her, and his pg girlfried comes and goes leaving som hope he may be moving shortly as he has a merc AND a flippin huge SUV, as well as her boat sized merc (old) one which, in a road where parking is hard enough, is a piss off to say the least! he is also involved with organised crime.. we know this for sure...dont ask its ridiculous what he gets away with!
anyway to the point:
A step ladder has appeared on our shed roof, it can only be next doors or the people behind...well we are decorating and it would be handy to use it, would it be unreasonable to take it off our shed roof (which isnt really strong enough to bear the weight for long) and use it, as no-one has actually asked if they could use our shed roof?!?!? to be fair it could of been there for a while and ive only just noticed it....
your roof - but who's ladder? if he's into organized crime, i wouldn't want to piss him off too much! i'd use it, and feign ignorance if he comes knocking on your door 'oh i thought it was dh's - he's got so much crap in that shed.'
his normal job is a builder, and warthog thats what i thought... he was on his doorstep last week screaming "i'll kill you c**t" at some blok over what seemed liked nothing so dont want to nark him... think i'l go with your suggestion and be all "oh i thought it was there when we moved in"
starshaker.. if you read my post its my shed roof.. being my neighbour, our sheds (brick built) are next to one and other... as to why its on my roof.. i have no clue.. there is also a bigger ladder on his own.
