My neighbor's property is a rental unit. Every year he gets cited by the city to paint some portion of the house or garage. He has always made minimum effort to get the old paint off the structure and so has this problem every year.
This year he got a ticket. He has hired some local cowboy to put vinyl siding on the house and replace the garage roof. The cowboy has a crew of young guys do the work, when they show up. Whenever they get a chance they smoke pot in the garage. They have become a problem for me. The have destroyed all of my 5 year old hostas at the side of the house. The plants are completely flattened. You can see for yourself. They have also put branches and shingle in front of my garage door so that we have difficulty parking the car. This was the growing pile today. My garbage can was filled to the brim yesterday with their trash. I couldn't put my own trash in it!I don't know how these guys get work, their referral network must really suck.These guys are absolute morons!
Actually, I take that back. I underestimated them. I thought they were morons but now I know they are cretins. When I went out today to confront them and the property owner, they insulted me and one of them even mooned me! (Sorry but I wasn't quick enough with the camera to get that picture.) The property owner was polite as usual. What they don't realize is, that as the president of our neighborhood association, I will do my best to see that they don't get any more work in this neighborhood. We don't want our residents supporting their drug habit now, do we?
