Friends?


This is what caused all the "news" for the last three days on ALL the news channels here in Phoenix. This is what happened......
The young guy that owns this house had a dead pine tree in his back yard. He asked his friends to cut it down for him - the payment was a couple six packs of beer. The house owner went to work. They, "the friends" cut the tree ...... well, part of the tree. The friends put a spot light towards "it" so the home owner wouldn't miss it. Spotlight? Well, the home owner works night shift.
It's been two weeks since the tree was cut. The home owner wanted to get it completely cut down but.... When asked why he hasn't taken care of it, he said he's had to deal with his house being robbed. I know all about that! My house got robbed a year and a half ago - it took forever to fill out all the insurance papers!
Sooooo the home owner has a partially cut down tree, his house robbed, and the neighbor complaining constantly to the city and the news. During the news interviews the home owner is "taking it in stride." The tree will come down today - all the tree!
I was on the five o'clock news last night. My moment of "fame" was brief and will not be going national or on YouTube!
Oh...you ask what my opinion was on the interview? I was the only one interviewed that thought it was funny :)
