Default Instant Idiot, Just Add Blower

Based on my observations putting a blower in the hands of an otherwise decent person will instantly morph them in to an insufferable idiot. My God, where should I start.

Neighbor Eileen. This miserable moomoo wearing sea cow blows her sidewalks and the road in front of her house every damn day. Guess where she blows it? Right onto the road in front of the neighbor (David) across the street and his sidewalk. She has complained that his oak tree drops leaves all over her property. Oddly just as her crepe myrtle does over his. My prayer is that the blower never makes its way up under that moomoo.

Eileen lives on a corner. Her and two other neighbors on the corner hire out grass cutting. The shitstains that do those three yards blow the clippings all over David's cars and lawn and even see fit to blow it all over my lawn and car. I kid you not, one day I was toweling off the last of the water from washing my truck. While I am doing this, the moron literally blows so much debris all over me and my truck that it gets into my eyes and leaves a layer all over my truck. I had something to say about that. Since then they haven't done it to me again, but they have done it to David.

David uses a blower too. He's probably the least moronic, but not without his issues. His yard is the same size as mine. It takes me 18 minutes to mow, edge and blow. David has run his blower alone for over 20 minutes. I think he fantasizes about racing 2 stroke motocross.

With all of this going on around me, if I don't cover my boat, which is under my carport, there's enough dirt in it to plant a garden.

Another neighbor hires out lawn care. His lawn guy is fast and efficient, but I swear to God, his blower sounds like a C-5 Galaxy spooling up. I can be inside with the TV on and the sound of his blower will drown out my TV. There's not a more piercingly annoying noise in the world than that, not even Hillary's voice.

My office is in a Post Office building. The lawn care professionals there blow all of their clippings onto a nearby parking lot.

The parish (what LA calls a county) has a crew that cuts the neutral ground (what LA calls a median) grass. They blow their clippings across the street and onto the lawns and sidewalks of the residents. One day the parish had the temerity to send me a notice warning me that I couldn't blow my clippings onto the road. I could be fined for that.

I guess I am the odd man out. Guess where I blow my clippings? Right back up into my lawn where the other clippings lay. Crazy concept I know.

Idiots, the lot of you.

That sucks, but your vent is great. Freaking people, I swear.

I love the one who fantasizes about riding 2S MX.

In my area, it is illegal to blow the clippings into the street or leave them there and they will fine you....they must be blown back into the grass or picked up and disposed of. There are people that drive around in "code enforcement" trucks that looks for stuff like that, along with people watering their lawn at the incorrect time or day. Call your local government offices and see if they have a code enforcement officer, they will take care of it for you.

I could call the parish government on the parish government lawn care crews. That should be fun.

I have a neighbor, come hell or high water, he's going to use his blower each and everyday. I could give a rats ass about where his clippings land, fact is, I have a yard not a lawn. The noise doesn't bother me either, I have enough distance and wall thickness to insulate me from the noise. And truth is, with roosters, tractor, chainsaw, various power tools, I probably generate more noise than all my neighbors combined. I just find it odd that this guy has a gravel driveway similar to mine, but finds so much to use a blower on.

Nah, you're on point with TG.... Just hope Mrs. B doesn't log back in, she sounds like a real bruiser as well as lovely.

Watch the city and county paid lawn and street blowere work. That is where they learn where to blow trash.

It all the leaves and tree droppings go back to the yard, the mower will turn them into mulch and that will benefit the yard. BUT the same
yard owner will not like that because Their yard will not look just so pristine. The idea of blowing the street leaves into their yard for the mower to recycle will not be tolerated.
Now, if they thought you were getting some benefit from their leaves and it was their loss, well that will also not be tolerated.
The city would be required to pick up those leaves for the good of humanity, and at any cost.

Do Not get mad! Look inside to assure that you are not as obnoxious as they in some other outlet.

Then you can accept their Narcisistic, Arrogant, Ignorant, Stupid, and Hipocritical behavior for what it is.

Narcisistic, Arrogant, Ignorant, Stupid, and Hipocritical Behavior.

Have a nice day!

In the 50's all the boats were shitty, and nobody could have afforded them anyway, so they had plenty of time to waste with a broom and a rake. Now we have lots of cool toys, and lots of cool tools to shorten the time it takes us to do our chores so that we can actually have time to use them.

I like my leaf blowers. I have 2, one backpack and one hand held. I bought the biggest one of each I could find. I like to use both of them at the same time. I use extra oil to keep them runnin and smelling good.

if you think you can take them I dare you to come try.

You will have to pry them from my cold dead hands.
