Sometimes my neighbor can be quite an idiot. He gets into all kinds of stupid situations, and sometimes they involve me. Recently he rented a vehicle to help him cut down some trees in his yard. He didn’t have any kind of experience using the vehicle, but he was sure that he could use it properly. He swung the top arm of the vehicle around and it scraped across the top of my roof, tearing off some of the shingles. I was furious with my neighbor, but he agreed to pay for Queens NY roof repair since the whole thing was his fault.
I was this close to suing my neighbor for the incident with my roof. He always does these kinds of absent minded things without thinking about the possible consequences. He was lucky that it was just my roof that was damaged. If something had gone really wrong with the vehicle, he could have collapsed the roof on me and I might have died. He could have also thrown himself from the vehicle and died of his own stupidity. I’m surprised that he’s managed to live this long without killing himself or anyone else around him. He always manages to damage my property and no one else.
A team of repair workers came by the day after the incident to repair my roof. They asked me how the roof became damaged and I told them the entire story, which was unbelievable to them. They had never seen anyone who was as incompetent or negligent as my neighbor. They recommended that I move as far away from him as soon as possible. I wish I could do that, but I don’t have enough money to move away. Besides, I moved into the neighborhood first, and if anyone should leave, it should be my neighbor.
