My Knickers in a Knot

You wouldn’t believe what’s going on!

For the last couple hours, I’ve been hearing a dang-blasted leaf-blower being used by the maintenance man hired for the rental house next door, which actually is owned by the pain in the derrierre realtor who lives down the street.

I came over here to the computer, put up the blinds.

This is what I see:

Note the nice semi-circle away from that garage and into the part of the yard I should be raking soon.

And this one taken with the other hand stuck out the window

See that nice clear driveway?
It’s because the brown leaves are blown onto our property!

There’s a sweet lady, retired schoolteacher who rents the place.  She doesn’t have much say in how and who does the upkeep.

I’ll tell ya, I’ve been attending the Mennonite Church for years, but I’m not sure I can be peaceable about this.
Although past experience tells me that battling with the owner is a lost cause.

Maybe we’ll get a wind storm tonight, so by tomorrow, nobody will know the difference.

This is picture proof it happened!

    Well I went down and talked to him about it. I mentioned other occasions when his hired guys piled debris from his property on my property. He seized on an occasion when his guys even went so far as to go on my property and cleared brush to his satisfaction. He said “that brush needs cleared out, I’m not going to apologize for that.”

    I always knew he was wrapped a bit tight but I wonder if it would be OK with him if I went on his property and changed the landscaping to my satisfaction. You know, planted some wildflowers and underbrush for the birds.

    That is frustrating.
    My next door neighbor told me today that the guy on the other side of her was up early Sat blowing leaves out of his yard and across the street into the yard of a house that is unoccupied and for sale. Real smooth.

    If it’s a company doing the lawn work i would be calling them…I’m sure that they are not getting paid to do such crappy work.

    It’s a company all right – his company.

    This is not funny. I too would be upset. Take some deep breaths. It might help you to relax. I think you need to take those photos to the gardening service. Good Luck!

    I am SO glad to live in an apartment:-) When I lived in a house I hate leaves…HATED leaves! I am not much in yard maintenance…I can barely remember to shave or remember where my keys are at any given time…if I had a yard it would probably get so out of control that the city would take my property.

    Hope it gets worked out!!!!
