7. He Deserved It
Several years ago, I lived on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico. It’s a very relaxed area, with tons of good restaurants and lots of green space.
My apartment was on a cliff, not far from the water. The electric infrastructure was a bit old, so when it was rainy season, we’d lose power for a few hours at a time.
Not a big deal – I had a gasoline generator. Enter a new neighbor. He lived two doors down from me and drove an amazing custom Chevy van from the 70s. All it needed was an epic airbrushed Wizard on the side.
Sadly though, that’s where anything good about him ended. I caught him taking the gas out of an orange jug I’d left outside in case the generator ran out. Although I saw him do it and called him out on it, he denied it and played stupid.
So after the second time, I took all of the gas in the jug, filled the generator with it, and put the rest in my car. I then went to the nearest gas station that had diesel and filled it up with diesel.
A few days later, I am woken up by a tow truck backing up to pick up his now disabled van. I looked out the window, and you could see the anger on his face. He moved out the next month, and from what I gathered from talking to people in the community.
