Hello all,

Well, an acquaintance who once before mowed my grass knocked on the front door of my house (couple days ago) and asked if he could borrow some finishing nails. I happened to have some as he knows I’m remodeling my house. I said hi to him and told him to meet me around back. Now he had to walk along the side of my house to get to the back.

I got my garage keys and walked through to the back door, approaching my garage, I called out “over here” I heard him reply “Hey, what's this?” Then, I heard him scream.

That dude had saw my mole trap set in the ground, didn't know what it was, so, obviously he pulled it out of the ground while it was cocked and started handling it, well, it’s a metal mole trap.
It almost cut off two of his fingers, there was so much blood. Well, the both fingers are broken real bad and he may lose one. Dr. is concerned about infection as it was a used mole trap.

I was always taught not to touch things on people's property. The dude is in his 60’s. And, why would you touch and not just as the question “What is it?”.

I don't understand people, why someone would pull a device out of the ground, on someone else s property while trying to borrow something. I was always taught, don't touch people stuff.

Question:
Is it not rude to do things like that ?
Was this person rude ?
(Now, I was always taught, don't touch people stuff.) So to me, yes, it is rude.

But, Oh, who knows if he will sue, probably will, the trap was not labeled, no signs, no security guard was on duty. He is a human being, I was trying to be a human being.

Why did he do that ? Why would anyone ?

OMG,
I’m so frustrated with stupidity. And it upset me, Am I wrong or what ?

Thanks,

Well it is rude to touch other peoples items and it's not like you said to him "hey come around the back and see this "thing" i have down the side of the house.

This is where the term 'common sense' comes in to play. Unfortunately, common sense is completely subjective. What is common sense to you and i (such as... dont poke or pick up random shit at someone else's house), may not be common sense AT ALL to others.

If you had it in a location where he had to physically grab it (it was buried), then that's even more stupid. Really....

Wow you look quite normal for a geek.

I don't know if "rude" is the most accurate word I'd use to describe his behavior.

"Stupid" or "Foolish" would be higher on the list. Hey what's this contraption hidden on someone else's property? I won't wait for an answer I'll just shove my hands in it. OW!

Thank god you didn't have a campfire or kitchen knife anywhere nearby, he'd be dead by now.

Generally, yeah it's rude to start playing with someone else's stuff. Especially when you're not in eyesight with them.

That said, I'd probably not think too hard about handling someone else's stuff in that situation if I was curious, but I'd at least approach it with caution, and if I broke anything by being an idiot I'd feel obligated to replace it.

I grew up in what now seems a totally different era .. When you were in a store or someone's house - anywhere - you didn't touch ANYTHING! Doing so likely as not to get you a whup upside the head.

Noticed the last .. dunno how long - some weird need for people to be tactile with every damned thing they see. Everything has to be touched.

Is (pulling your trap) rude? Sure as heck is to people my age, and presumably older. My response is typically get out.

I just hope this jackass doesn't sick the ambulance hounds on you for not having neon flashing warning signs.

Do stupid stuff, win stupid prizes.

Sheesh, did this guy grow up in a bubble? That sounds like something an 8-10 yr old city boy might do. nono.gif

Sorry, Areal. But this is hilarious.

The good thing is he is an adult. He also clearly saw the trap, because he asked about it. He didn't step in it. But yeah, I'd be worried.

I wouldn't even know how to act to this neighbor, anymore. I mean after all the first aid and the bleeding is done.

I seen him just the other day, hand all bandaged up, he showed it to me.
It looks really bad to me, but he said currently there's no infection.
He said he knows now it was a stupid thing to do. I hate it happened.
He seemed nervous, maybe he will not sue.

Anyway,
Thanks for the advise, and laughs, I just don't understand people sometimes.

have a nice day,
-Areal
