and for once it was because I had called them, not them looking for difficult child. You may remember a few weeks ago I posted about neighborhood kids teasing and taunting difficult child. Well, I spoke to the parents and tried to explain to them what was going on and that difficult child was getting worked up and ready to pound the kids. Apparently they either didn't care or didn't believe their little darling (I only knew who one of the kids were) could possibly be doing anything wrong. It slowed down some to being only after supper they were up to it. The latest being shining a laser light in the windows of our house, from across the street or in the alley. I warned the boys last night that if it happened again I would be calling the police. Again, apparently they didn't think I'd do it. Tonight, I was sitting here watching tv when I got hit square in the eye by the laser. Considering I've been sick and woke up this morning with one of my migraines (mine present as floaters in front of my eyes making it impossible to read or see anything directly in front of me) it really wasn't what I needed. I was po'd to the max. I put my shoes on and walked over to the one kids' house again, but couldn't get anyone to answer the door. I came home and called the cops. They dispatched an officer, who parked at the end of the block and caught them in the act. He spoke to the father of the one, after chasing down the two boys who were at it tonight. He came here to speak to me after talking to the father. I told him it's been going on for a while and I was tired of throwing myself between my 6 foot 250 pound autistic child and the door to keep him from pounding on the kids. He was going back to talk to the father again and tell him that there's more to it than just this one time. I then spoke to difficult child and told him that if there is any trouble he is to come to me without even saying a word to the kids. There is now a report of their behavior and they will be watched. He said okay, but... I said no but you come to me I will call the cops again. Let's hope this is the end of it.
