I guess I am kind of lost here. Here is what you wrote, Ronald:
So the wife comes back from doing something around the side of the house to see that a 2½ year old girl who has watched us fill our vehicles with gas, has opened up the gas cover of this vehicle parked at our sidewalk, somehow turned the little cover, and has put enough water into the tank that is spilling out the bottom..... who knows what the gas to water ratio is now.. The wife closes up the tank, shuts off the hose, and goes into the house. By the time I got home and heard what happened the vehicle was gone.
I already figured what you did. I also figured that maybe you and your wife were arguing about it and you decided to put it on the board to see who is right. Your wife decided to leave the situation alone and ignore it and you decided to contact the neighbor. Am I right on this?
