When I married Matt, I knew what I was going to be in for when we had a boy...lots of payback from when Matt was a teenager!  However, I expected the payback to start when Connor is a teenager, which would give me plenty of time to prepare.

I was completely wrong on when the payback was going to begin.  It all started with the new family across the street.  Their college age son has a loud truck and when he's home for the summer you always hear him pull up around 3 in the morning.  Normally that wouldn't bother me, but now that I have a sleeping child at that time, it really ticks me off.  I'm sure this is the same feeling the previous neighbors had when Matt was in college and ragged his truck through the neighborhood!

This brings me to our latest incident...this past week we heard a huge crash.  Immediately Matt thought Connor had done something in his bedroom and raced upstairs, but that wasn't it.  Then Matt asked if I had dropped something, to which I replied no.  He then proceeds to open the front door and ask if the lights were burnt out.  At this point I'm irritated with the 20 questions...then he looks at the end of the driveway...

Someone had missed their turn and backed right into the column at the end of the driveway...of course they drove off.

At least the person didn't hit the one with the mailbox in it

The frustrating part is that it wiped all the lights in the front of the house out because the light on top was connected to the porch lights.

Matt has never knocked down a mailbox before, but to say he wasn't with someone who did and then drive off would be a lie.  See what I mean, the payback has already started...
