    But he does have money. He gets a check every month. So he can pay for a replacement chip out of that and skip a case of beer or two next month.

    I don’t have time or energy for low life’s,

    people who do not contribute to society, I keep well clear of, and I have no problem telling them why…

    that pretty much solves the problem.

    this guy is never going to get right,
    It’s not like he just hit a rough patch,
    That’s a different situation…

    He is a parasite, and will have a billion excuses for being a parasite.
    Stop listening to them.

    his problem need not be your problem, and only you can make that change.
    Use energy and time with people you can actually help…

    You let him take your car? Dude really?

    Dodging deadbeat neighbours is becoming a way of life.

    Lend him $100.
    He'll leave you alone after that.
    It'll be worth it.

    That only works with people who have a smidge of decency and some sense of guilt.

    The only sense parasites have is honing on that soft spot to attach and feed. The OP kindly offered his soft spot. Unfortunate situation.

    I quit loaning my neighbor anything after he never returned my ladder and some hedge trimmers. The guy had them hanging in his garage one day. I walked in and just grabbed them.
    He had the balls to ask for my wifi password. I told him I can not remember it sorry pal.
    Sometimes you just have to draw a line.

    I was kidding, of course.
    The neighbor clearly has your basic junkie mentality.

    I don't know what guitarmageddon is but it sounds like a pretty good way to go.

    I guess this is one of the reasons that I mostly keep to myself and am unapproachable.

    Another being that I lean misanthropic.

    Yep.

    They tore the house down and latter a rich Russian guy put a mansion on the property.

    We tease him that anything that goes wrong in the house, is the guy and his dog's ghosts

    Huh.

    It sucks that you have the dude for a neighbor.

    I'll add my, "sorry no", to the bunch.

    I never could understand the concept of borrowing common tools that all people should have.If I need a tool I buy my own .To not return it is just stupid

    If I was a guy like Pete Townshend, I WOULD give the nutty neighbor my WiFi password.

    "No officer, I would never download anything like that, that's sick!!! I'm a good Christian man. But....I did give my WiFi password to the guy across the street...."

    I read an interview where Townsend was describing how he admired Mick Jagger’s wiener. And the child porn stuff? How did he get away with that?

    He said he was researching something... uh...k...
    But the actual answer to your question is money. Lots and lots of money.
