    Yeah, I'll just have to find the right time when he's sober.

    The last thing I want to do is get something like the police or zoning board involved. Someone called the zoning board on him many years ago and he's still bitter about it. I could only see that making it worse. Not to mention, I'm in unincorporated cook county, Illinois. This has gotta be the heaviest bureaucratically thick and corrupt county in the country. It would take an act of god to actually push a complaint thru without paying someone off, so that's hardly worth my time and energy.
    I honestly think the best way to deal with him is to just throw back the occasional good hearted sarcastic comment when he's doling them out himself. That way he'll know theres no malice. I'm certainly not going to give in to bullying, and I'm not going to start a feud.
    Thanks guys for the suggestions.

    Maybe go over with a open beer in one hand and another to hand to him when he's working in the garage. It should help things start off on the right foot rather than going south before you get a word out.

    I have the same problem with my neighbor across the street, he is the king of passive aggressive behavior towards me... *sigh*... I Just smile and wave when he starts complaining about something.. .;)

    Ask him if he can turn the light to the right, because you are trying to read a book out in your yard and there is not enough light to read where you want to sit at.

    That explains the misery your dealing with . sharing alcohol won't help .

    Try dropping AA brochures on his doorstep or in his mailbox every other week, for the next several months .

    He might get the help he needs.

    I probably should clarify that drunk statement. I wouldn't necessarily classify him as an alcoholic. More like the typical blue collar social drinker with a beer fridge in the garage. At this time year i tend to only run into him after work or weekends, and that's the time its most likely to be after a few beers. But at the same time. Last night with the spotlight was one of those nights where there was probably more beer involved than normal.
