Any regular reader of this site, or Racer X Online, or listener of our podcasts, knows: Weege is the cheapest person in the entire world. He does not deny this. Oh no, it’s a badge of honor.
Well, as he explains below, his cheapness recently almost led to an arrest and surely a huge fine, which would have probably killed him.
If you want to hear more about the near arrest, listen to the Racer X Podcast with Weege, JT, and Matthes.

Five Oh! Almost got FREE sod and also almost got some jail time. My backyard is a swamp mess due to poor drainage and my poor skills at fixing things. Neighborhood developer told us if we see discarded old sod laying curbside it’s trash so just take it if you need a patch. I saw some and threw it in my stealthy Orange Jeep. Put some soil down to “regrade” and placed 4 sheets of sod on top. Drainage issues solved...until a police officer walked into my backyard and said what I’ve done is technically stealing, but charges won’t be pressed if I return it. My son was pumped to see a real life cop in the yard until he heard him say daddy was stealing. So I brought the sod back while the entire 55-plus community watched (with scowls) as the young punk in the Orange Jeep returned the stolen sod. (sod will be dead by tomorrow from laying on the sidewalk BTW) The lesson: you can take the old sod from the curb but don’t do it in the 55-plus section of the ‘hood. #police #sod #lawncare #free
