Okay, so last Friday my neighbors down the street put a massive yard sale sign on my yard (I live on the corner). They never asked if it was cool but I didn't mind to much. Even if the thing is a 3 foot by 4 foot piece of plywood. So it has been there all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and now its almost noon and it is still here. It is one thing when people leave their month old signs stuck to telephone poles, but this is a little ridiculous.

So I ask of you, should I wait and see if they take it down? Rip it down now, toss it in the street and blame the weather? Or be a dick and toss it back in their yard?

Whatever you want, it's your yard.

#3 Posted by Alexander (1721 posts) -

Tell them to come and collect it.

#4 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

Be a dick and toss it in their yard. No one should destroy your property (I am assuming it was wood and caused damage to your lawn). I wouldn't of let them put it for that long. It belongs on a car window or on street lamp. Not personal property, especially if it wasn't like a multi-family/block yard sale thing.

#5 Posted by DeeGee (2119 posts) -

Take it out immediately.

Regardless of whether you cared much about it, it's a total dick move to not even ask you. You may have had a huge problem with it, they don't know that, they just assumed. Toss it in their yard and see what they say, if they get huffy about it then politely tell them to ask next time.

Have you tried talking to them and asking if they could move it?

#7 Posted by BonOrbitz (2182 posts) -

Yes. Take it down immediately if the sale is over and give it back to them.

#8 Posted by MAN_FLANNEL (2462 posts) -

I would have taken it down the first time I saw it.

If is in YOUR yard or on like a phone post?

BOOM problem solved

#11 Posted by kermoosh (911 posts) -

well it sounds like you dont really know these people since they didn't ask if they could put up a sign, so i would just take it down and throw it in the trash or reuse the wood
they can't expect you to keep it on if they never asked for permission

The materials are shit so I have no use for them. I went to their house and asked if they could come get it today. They said "No" and shut the door.

1st. Who the fuck does that?

2nd. I tore it down and piled it in front of their door.

Clearly the adult thing to do is to put an even larger sign advertising a GAY sale in their garden.

Adult/juvenile, same thing.

Wow, I was just going to say you should just go and talk to them and be pretty reasonable about it.

But yeah, tearing it down and throwing it back to them would have been my advice after what they did. If it was on a phone pole or something, I could maybe understand, but just sticking something on your property randomly and then shutting the door on you like that is completely ridiculous.

#16 Posted by SomeJerk (3203 posts) -

They basically committed to illegal advertising, and chances are that signs that can be seen from a car like that are illegal, like they are in my country because they can and will take the drivers attention. If they repeat their business, look into the law, maybe call a non-911 number to your friendly police quarters and ask, and mention that those neighbours shut the door on you and acted suspect.

Rip it down and throw it in their yard. Or call the police and tell them they are littering on your property. 
#18 Posted by Enigma777 (6070 posts) -

Why should you do all the work? Tell em to take it down themselves and if not just kick it off your property.

Excellent choice. Sounds like you have some asses for neighbors
#20 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

well it sounds like you did the job thing and put it on their lawn.

#21 Posted by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

Do what all of us Americans do. Sue them!

#22 Posted by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

Put up a sign on his yard. If he takes it down, take down his sign.

People like that make me rage. Here's what "you shoulda" done: 
 
1) Take down their sign, quietly throw it away. Don't make a big deal--you don't want them to know you're actually mad at them.
2) Wait until they leave on summer vacation.
3) Burn their house down.

...You should have taken it down three days ago.

What the hell are you doing?

#28 Posted by pigmartyr (211 posts) -

So was there any recourse? Did they come say anything? When is the sale?
Dickhead neighbors like that would probably sue you for loss of business due to you removing the sign.

#29 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Now shit on their car

#30 Posted by Voshterkoff (125 posts) -

Kick it into the street, apply kerosene, ignite.

Do that, but right on there door step.

#32 Posted by emkeighcameron (1876 posts) -

I've handled this kind of thing before. I recommend:

Tear the sign down

Crush into super-small tiny bits

Eat the bits with milk

Poop out the bits

Take your pooped-out sign and sprinkle it into an apple pie mix

Make the apple pie with the poop in it

Invite the neighbors over for dinner to show no hard feelings

Have them eat the poop-sign pie

Show photos to them detailing whole process after dinner.

wow you have terrible neighbours...  what assholes

#34 Edited by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

Go over to their house and plant down a huge sign of your own that says "You left your giant sign on my yard. Please come take it down. Thank you." 

#35 Posted by televisionomy (90 posts) -

Be a dick and say "I don't want YOUR fuckin sign on my fence, so I ask of you to take it off my fence and put on yours, PLEASE! "

this would have been the best choice
#37 Posted by Beforet (2915 posts) -

Shoulda burned it, and you should have done something when you first noticed it. You can't let your neighbors walk over you like that, even if you don't mind.

#38 Posted by lawlerballer (204 posts) -

vandalize it with funnies

Can't argue with your decision.
#40 Posted by Subjugation (4719 posts) -

If someone put stuff on my property, especially without asking, I would do whatever I pleased with it. Your property, your rules. Maybe they could be a little less lazy and make a simple A-frame so the sign could stand on its own and be put anywhere else, like perhaps on the corner of the sidewalk or something. I approve of how you handled it though especially after how they behaved.

Well you did the right thing, now the murder.

#42 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -

It's not too late to put a sign on their lawn. Just pointing that out.

#43 Posted by Xeiphyer (5601 posts) -

Get a sledgehammer and hammer it really deep into the middle of their lawn so its a huge bitch to take out. That's rude as fuck, return them in kind!

#44 Posted by OmegaChosen (644 posts) -

Buy a ton of wooden posts, paperboard, and landmines. Make a ton of signs with without writing anything on them. Hammer them all around their yard as deep as possible.

Fill the spaces with landmines.

Watch.

#45 Posted by Vinny_Says (5700 posts) -

Time to pull a drive-by on they bitch ass. 
 
Just fucking throw the sign on their lawn. Simple really.

#46 Edited by supermike6 (3556 posts) -

Take it out, then politely walk over to their house, knock on their door, and return it. 
 
EDIT: Oh, you already tried that. In that case, shit on their porch.

Yeah I was going to suggest he just go by and ask them to get their sign thinking 'nobody could object to that and this way he doesn't burn bridges with his neighbors'. But no, apparently he lives near psychopaths.

#48 Posted by SockLobster (456 posts) -

You should poop on it for the internet.

#49 Posted by Dagbiker (6957 posts) -

Hire a construction crew to take it down and then send them the bill.

#50 Edited by Sight_Unseen (17 posts) -

ok heres what you do. 
 
1.) remove the sign from your yard. 
2.) drive around and collect as many lawn signs as you can (all those vote for whoever signs and shit). 
3.) spam their lawn with signs. dont leave any open grass at all. 
 
or you can also do this with afew thousand plastic forks 
 
 
edit: ok so aparently they are dicks.  
 
new plan. get some friends. and a few thousand jolly ranchers. and lick them all and stick them all over their cars. if they try to peel them off it rips the paint.  
also poop in their mailbox.
