Dear Lex,

I trust this letter finds you well. Let me just cut to the chase. I don’t know what to do about these fencers in my backyard. They showed up three days ago and they’ve returned each day since. I’m looking at them from my kitchen window right now, and my blood is boiling. Nowhere on my property does it say “Fencers Welcome”. I’ve tried to shoo them away, doing everything short of calling the cops (yelling at them, throwing rocks, threatening their families, etc.). You know that I don’t want to drag the authorities into this if I don’t absolutely need to.

Look, these fencers aren’t exactly wreaking havoc (aside from wearing down my lawn with their lunging), I’m more concerned with the principle of the thing. How would they like it if I decided to practice my golf game on their lawn without being invited?

I know you have methods for getting rid of unwanted pests, so I feel compelled to ask you for a favor. Before you object, just remember who pulled the strings to get your dog into the best obedience school in the state. I don’t care how you do it, I just want those fencers never to appear on my property again. You have full creative license on this one. I’ll even sweeten the deal. If you take care of this nuisance, I’ll buy you dinner at that new gastropub downtown. I know how much you like hipster food.

Love,

Edna
