Some petty people have nothing better to do with their lives than bring misery on everyone else's.

Don't you know that chalk's a gateway to more serious substances? One day it's chalk, the next day it's a spray can. Seriously though, control your fucking kid - it's not her sidewalk. If chalk's so harmless, go ahead and let her draw all over your walls.
16: Okay, that was either some really extreme sarcasm, or you're on the fence with the old guy and you seriously think chalk on a sidewalk is vandalism. It washes off for fuck's sake. If he didn't like it that much, he should wash it off himself instead of wasting a cop's time when they would be out taking care of something serious. Although, your first sentence seemed a bit ridiculous, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
#10, seriously what the complete fuck. Really?! No, just no. If flirting seductively with the cop is what you are referring to, then that could imply that OP is trying to drop the cops pants to get the "charges" dropped. And, if you meant the old guy, like wtf?!! Flirt with a wrinkled, miserable oldie would not help ANYTHING
Chalk would wash away in the rain though surely? Some old people are just grumpy, OP.
I guess the grumpy old man didn't care whether it washed away or was permanent. I had a neighbor who also called the cops on children who drew on her sidewalk. She's also my aunt. Good thing I moved. But yes, that goes to show that some people are just miserable and want the world to be the same.
How is that vandalism? I used to do that as a kid myself and chalk washes off if it's sidewalk chalk.
Yes, but #20, I'm assuming that OPs daughter is drawing in front of their own place, somewhere close to their place, or at a friends. It would be kinda weird if she was drawing on the sidewalk in random places, but given the fact OP was obviously there I'm assuming they were at home or somewhere close by where OP could keep an eye on her. And if they are in front of their own place is it really defacing public property when it really can be washed off with water ( assuming it really is sidewalk chalk) and she seems to have had permission to draw on the sidewalk (if she is young)? There are people who really use sidewalk chalk to make 3D art on public places and people actually like it for the most part. To me it sounds like said neighbor was just looking for a reason to start something that wasn't there before, and/or having a bad day. Even still the neighbor should have just minded his own business like everyone else. No need to call the cops and start drama for a little chalk that won't stay there forever. My apologies for the long post everyone.
In Canada is a judgement call for officers and judges. It can either be sanctioned as temporary artwork or condemned as graffiti depending on whether or not it's welcome and the quality and nature of the work. Sidewalk chalk swastikas in front of the synagogue are vandalism, sidewalk chalk flowers in front of the daycare are art, generally speaking.
Don't worry, an old lady once called the cops on my friends because they were turning my car into a s'more. I didn't press charges, just enjoyed the deliciousness of a car-sized s'more.
#5 I don't know who has the most issues your "friends" for lighting your car on fire or you for just standing back to watch and then you don't even press any charges.... But I think I'm leaning towards you because who let's people light their car on fire and then doesn't do anything about it and doesn't press any changes wtf??
I only said it like that because of the way his response was formatted, I was trying to make it sound the same. I was being sarcastic/somewhat silly and not trying to be really rude. Sorry for the additional explanation, but I just reread my comment and it seemed rather mean. :( sorry
