Dealing with tweekers

Im getting sick of the neighborhood tweekers. I see them riding around at night on bicycles casing out the neighborhood. Even saw a dude one night with a flashlight taped to a hardhat. Freakin hillarious. We have a couple dope houses around here and the cops dont do $hit. Yesterday I found a miniture flashlight laying next to my trailer. Gotta be someone who doesnt know who I am. Most my neighbors know we dont dial 911 at my house. And I'm not the only hillbilly/redneck on the block either.

I used to feel that way. Why is it we are tolerant unless it comes to tweekers ?

We have to protect ourselves and our families, sure. But we also have to let the prejudice go. They are sick people too.

Washington County is infested with Meth. They seem to be the ones doing most the theiving and ID theft around here. Not that what I did was any better or worse. But I have no tolerance when it comes to somebody messin with the tools I use to earn a living.

I'm in the NYC metro area. It's hard to tell what's wrong with some people you see on the street in the city. Sometimes 3/4 of them look like tweekers to me lol

on edit- dammit I did it again. I'm in the men's room. I'm going to have to see a shrink. Freud would be sure to remind me that there are no accidents

I belong to many other forums and so far, I have seen only one that had a code that it won't let you in if you don't belong in that room. "Access Denied Sorry, only members with sufficient permission can access this page." I am a male but I can't go in the womens room by mistake. You have to be logged in as a female. No guest's! Just a suggestion "DOUG" or "Morning Glory"

We're not all thives. But i would still lock the doors thou.

It would suck if a tweeker tweeks your car using your tools thou.
I did'nt put a light bulb on my head, but i worked on my car three days and three nights non-stop.
maybe if i did haed a hard hat with a flashlight duck taped , i might had been able to see in the dark.lol

Maybe you could leave NA literture laying around in your yard.
It works in NA and for me...my sponsee don't call or wanna be

I used to do the ordering for the plumbing department where I work, and every tuesday about four weeks worth of Anderson/Barrows brass fittings would come in and fill the shelves quite nicely. Every Wednesday though, I'd have to zero out about two thirds of the on hands because they'd "mysteriously" disappear, along with all of the faucet display handles and fittings, and several of the Ridged tools, and angle stops by the truckload. I used to love it when tweekers would then come up to me with their pupils dialated to dime size and bitch about our out of stocks.

I now order for the Garden department....thank God!
