Receiving Anonymous Letters From A Neighbour

This is one of the horrible aspects of this: you end up suspecting all sorts of people who are totally innocent. Maybe it's someone entirely different, or even one of the neighbours who claim to have received one? Stranger things have happened.

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

Trying to find out about soundproofing a party wall and I found this thread.. intrigued to know if the phantom letter sender was ever caught?

Yes she was - sent a signed letter threatening to complain to her neighbour about her tumble drier being on during the day.

Turned out she'd also phoned the RSPCA about another neighbour's dog.

The police gave her a caution.

the standard response to such activity on another forum I have looked at...

would be to hammer frozen sausages into her lawn

Interesting idea. Does it kill the grass in the long term? If so you could arrange them to spell something out in big letters.

I liked the idea suggested somewhere in Off Topic a while back about chucking a gravy cube onto the lawn when it's raining, so it soaks in and will attract all sorts of animals to try to dig it out... Much easier to get away with than hammering in sausages too.

and there was me thinking a sausage tree would grow up :blink:
