I will explain very nicely how this is a great thing for me and that in the long run it will save me a lot of time and money. This will also be a good opportunity to remind him that he "borrowed" three 1"x4"x8' cedar trim boards that he never replaced either.
Basically, don't bother to ever ask for another favor. His nickname for my garage is the tool Library. And I will make it a point to mention this to the two other neighbors that have loaned him tools in the past.
To be fair he did loan me a ladder for the summer... And I cleaned and returned it. He's a bit odd, but not too bad a guy, at least compared to his brother. His brother got sued for spraying the neighbors dogs with a skunk scent. Every time they got near his fence and no one was watching he would douse them. The owners though the dogs were always chasing skunks. They had to constantly wash their dogs.
Compared to him, he's a pretty nice guy. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />
