Default Can murdering neighbors be legalized?

Saturday morning. I'd been looking forward to it all week - it was the light at the end of a hellacious week of work, and all I wanted was to lie in. But of course, douchebag across the street has other ideas.

Cue the 7:30am landscaping.

I'm not sure WHY they start work that early, or indeed why they kick off with leaf blowers. Maybe it's a mating cry to others in the area? "Hey, any other inconsiderate cocknockers in the area wanna come over?" But something possessed him to go out and push his few leaves around the front garden with a two stroke engine strapped to his back.

The ironic thing is that this guy is a self-righteous green-douche. I'm all for doing our bit for the environment, but we're talking about a Prius driving knobsack, who's actually yelled at me on trash day for not recycling a pizza box (It's got oil on it, fartwad, you *can't* recycle it!). And here he is, puttering about with something that pollutes the air way worse than a car, the steaming turd burglar.

I bring this up, because he's out there AGAIN hosing his driveway down. At least he's doing it at a time of day when he assumes he won't bother folks (other than those of us who work from home). And hopefully it means he won't be doing it this weekend at 7:30 again. Because if it does, I'm going to shove the damn thing up his arse.

okay. How about I wait til the heat of the day when the emissions from my engines have the greatest impact on teh environment.

Will that then satiate your need to sleep while others prefer to be productive in the daylight?

Or do you prefer I wait til the evening so you can hum a tune to my 2 cycle over dinner?

Leaf blowers are a scourge.

The guy who invented them should be shot.

I hate leaf blowers! I also hate inconsiderate neighbors. Hosing down your driveway is a waste of water,tell him

We had neighbors down the way that had 5 or 6 labs in their backyard that would all bark at once.

They were far enough to not annoy me too much but I have no clue how their direct neighbors could stand it. I would flip out.

Finally after a couple of LEO visits they built a huge fence.

Idiots.

that reminds me to get to bed early tonight as the recycling truck will be throwing them bottles and cans around at 6am sharp. Can't we just convince our neighbors to move to kegs?

Theres really only one thing to do... Scare the living **** out of the guy and make it known you are pissed to all hell about his 0730 fiasco, and maybe he will stop.
