Default Neighbor Draining Roof onto My Property

"Perry Aynum" wrote in message
My next door neighbor has run his black corrugated pipe from his
downspouts down to the back corner of our adjoining lot, right up the the
fence, and it is draining directly onto my property, and drenching the
footings of my shed.

I can't believe this is anything but intentional. In fact, he did it a
few years ago, and even more blatantly, and halfway from front to back,
instead of the back corner.

Do I have a reason to complain to the guy? Am I torqued over nothing?
Someone please talk me out of calling him and "politely" asking him to
move it again.

Or should I go out there at night, and push a long pole through the fence
and push the drain back onto his yard, and see if it magically reappears
again back towards my yard?

Water has to drain somewhere and ultimately it will flow to whatever
downhill location exists. There is probably little to nothing you can do
about it anyway, so I would ignore the prick, and not give him any
satisfaction in knowing that he's annoyed you. There are lots of small
people in the world. Ignoring them is absolute torture to them
