Your end of the street

Jeez Megan, I thought I lived on the rough end of Some Street. We don't have all those fancy planters and shit. All we've got is a rusty chain to calm our traffic down. But nothing like that goes on down here!

All up in ya grill

Good for you and your "Hey Hey". It never ceases to amaze me how people, when witnessing the unacceptable treatment of other human beings that they do not know personally, be it scoundrels, wives, children or otherwise - how people, pretend it's not happening. I guess it's because talking to abusive strangers is scary.
that took guts. and in a pink shirt no less.

ya done us proud Butcher.

(Good stories by the way)

A few doors down

That was last night? Because the cops came to the House of Garbage last night too... I saw them when I was coming back from a walk with Morty. They were having a party. Smelled like drugs, and well, garbage.

Cleanin' Up The Street

No to get all N.I.M.B.Y. or anything, but my Bylaw-Informed boyfriend says that they have to get that garbage off the lawn. There's a bylaw that says you can't have garbage all over your lawn unless it's the night before garbage pick up.

And that guy isn't supposed to have all those damn U-Hauls parked there either.

I might get cleaned!

Yesterday, my next door neighbour informed me that "someone" might call bylaw about my patch of weeds out the front. Though I like to think of it as my wild garden. At least it's not broken particle board furniture. It's mostly lamb's quarters and amaranth, I think.

Maybe we could politely ask them to stop leaving garbage on their front lawn? Maybe one of them is moving out, so maybe it'll stop soon? I'm all for giving it another garbage day or two and then asking them to stop because it makes us sad.

Or maybe the next time the cops are there?

Anon - Yeah, I was a little nervous about it, but stuff like that flourishes when it's given the space to do so. If that Asshole Landlord knows that the neighbours are watching, I'm hoping he'll be less likely to take a swing. Though he seemed to believe he was being wronged, so who knows.
