So I started to freak out a little, parked jumped out of my car, and walked over. first words out of hubby's mouth, before I could even ask what happened, were, "Look what some a**hole did to our fence.
I looked down and saw that the board that runs along the bottom part of the fence right there had been pulled loose from the fenceposts and even broken in one place. Also our garbage can, which had been standing right in front of the fence, was totally smashed in. It was obvious someone had hit it with their car, most likely backed into it and then took off.
Pissed me off, but should be easy to fix. Now I have to fix this myself, can't call the landlord anymore - welcome to home ownership!!!
The cops were there because hubby had called them to report the damage. One of the other cars saw the cops there and stopped to report some totally unrelated incident of I don't know what. The other car stopped because apparently the occupants of the two cars knew each other. Whatever.
