So my neighbor has been knocking on our door for the past week now 8 times a day! He is bi polar and is most likely getting evicted from his place. He can't afford his rent increase and he has broken his patio window and punch holes in the walls. Now a few months ago we got along with him great and we would bring him food at least 3 times a week.(He doesn't work and Social security pays his bills) Well my husband even gave him our old tv so he would have something to do. He ended up selling it 2 weeks later for drugs. We can tell since then he was going down hill. He had a friend that was homeless move in with him and his friend is a thief and a drug addict( he would always ask my DH to by something he stole from him and my DH told him no). A week ago our neighbor took all the stolen items out on the sidewalk in front of his place. Then the next day he brought it all in then brought it outside again. Well when he broke his window he was arrested and stayed in jail for 2 days then came back. Now he has no electricity and no food. He asked us for food and I made sure to give him enough food for at least 4 days. He asks for more food everyday now! There is a church 3 blocks away that gives out food and I wonder why he doesn't ask them to. He asks to use our phone when he has a cell phone and my DH just helped him last night to load his pre paid mins on it! Today he used our phone so far 3 times. He borrows money from his family so he can buy his cigarettes and drugs instead of buying food. I am just wondering how long should we keep answering our door to him? I really like to help people out but I just feel like we are being taken advantage of here. What do you think? He is knocking again as I type this!
