NOT the way to start the day.

Ya know,...there are some things that really annoy the crap outta me,(besides cellphones, and leaf-blowers, as you already know.) Like when the lawn jockeys come extra early to mow your lawn,(try 7:30AM,) and then proceed to wreck your landscaping AND break both gates of our wooden privacy fence while they were at it. To make things worse, husband went out there to play Charades with them since they don't speak english, and ask them to, -ahem, careful not to mess up anything else in the yard, and to be careful of the fence,....and after a few minutes of this,- the guy says to him in perfect english,...."so do you want me to finish cutting the grass or not?" My husband stormed back in, and went right back to bed for the rest of the day. Now let me tell you that is not how I want to start my day. I woulda went out there and tore him a new piehole, but then I woulda had to explain why the rest of the yard wasn't done. (And we don't have a lawn mower, otherwise I woulda finished it and/or done it me-self.) To say the least, these guys are so unbelievably careless. Everytime they finish, our pool looks like a lilypond and then we have to go out and clean the pool for an hour, this heat,....yeah, I know, I'm lucky to have a pool,....but what good is it if you can't swim in it because it's not clean because the lawn crew don't know how to use a bag or what not. Is it me or what? Not to mention the teenager who lives across the street from us, and you can hear his bass in his car TWO BLOCKS away! My cats run and hide!(and I'm NOT kidding.)He gets up early sometimes,(6 or 7am) and then sometimes he stays out late, and hearing that at 3 or 4 in the morning is NOT fun. Don't people have more respect than that? I mean I do. I never want someone to look at me and think what an idiot I am for having my music so loud, you can hear it two godamn blocks away! Jeez. Then there is the family that has the sweetest dog in the world, but they open the door and she goes flying out, and Lord knows it could get hit by a car, but usually she makes a beeline for our house because of the kitties, and if we have our garage door open, all hell breaks loose. The cat freaks out, the dog barks, the lady yells for her to come back, and we all are inside not knowing what the hell is going on!!! What else can I bitch about? Oh yeah, can't wait for the Fourth of July fireworks. It started already here. How bout you-all?

I have one neighbor that mowed her lawn at 7:00 a.m. - not sure what that was about and also left her dog outside to bark for 1hr 20min STRAIGHT.

The other side I have a neighbor with an illegal kennel and several times per day (including 11 pm) he lets all the dogs out to howl.

In addition, they have a rooster and goose (still trying to figure it out)

Some days I just want to scream so I definitely feel your pain.
