Default Stupidest phone call I have ever gotten as HOA president

Was on the lawn mower tonight. When I shut it down, I looked at my phone. Had several missed calls from the same number, and a text message identifying the caller as a neighborhood resident, that requested I call them.

I didn't realize it until they picked up the phone, but it was the lady from somewhere up north that recently moved into the neighborhood. She requested that I immediately make a rule banning mowing the grass after 6 PM on weekdays, and some other crazy hours she had schemed up for the weekend. Said it interfered with her putting her kids to bed.

She got really pissed when I refused to make the recommendation to the board for this rule to be made, and also did not understand why the board could not even make such a rule, per the neighborhood covenants.

Aside from the absolute absurdity of her request, who in the hell puts their kids to bed at 6 o'clock?

Tell her to move to North Korea.

Or just back up North.

Jesus. That's when you get a shock cord, wrap the throttle on full and let it run all while sitting in a chair with a cold one.

People from up north are very smart, she's just trying to help you rednecks figure how to live better, keep an open mind.

This is why our HOA deed can only be altered every 10 years, because stupid people like this would seriously make a law.

That's why I will never live in one. You have to deal with the board members and the people that live in it! Tell her to move back up north or move out to the country like I did. Some people are just morons. Feel sorry for her kids. No wonder her teenagers are bullied.

Rednecks are smart enough to mow their grass when they get off work during the week. That way, they're free to ____ off on the weekends

She actually wasn't calling about me. I just happened to be mowing at the same time.

Ours takes a 3/4 majority vote. Pretty much impossible to change. This is a good thing.

Ours isn't bad. From a bilaws standpoint it makes a lot of sense. Just deals with construction methods, and is there to have an entity to pay the street light bill. Dealing with the ocassional idiot like this is the only downside in our situation.

Generally speaking I am in favor of not being in one, but almost impossible if you are seeking a good location these days.

Take the muffler off the mower. Nothing worse than a Briggs without a muffler at WOT.

Every time I read one of these HOA threads, it makes me happy I don't live in an HOA community.

See if you can get an optimax powered lawnmower not only will it emit 150 decibels but kill all the zika mosquitos around.
