To the leaf blower man who believes that 4:30 AM is a reasonable time to blow leaves, trash and debris around the parking lot: GO FUCK YOURSELF. It is not a reasonable time, in fact it is pretty much the very worst time to be engaging in such a loud obnoxious activity. The last 2 hours of sleep are some of the most crucial hours of the night. Being woken up at that time and having to hear a leaf blower which is a noise that makes me angry at 4:30 in the afternoon, really makes my blood boil which in turn makes it damn near impossible to fall back asleep.

This on top of the reel pride festival extravaganza last night that had club music bumping until a little after 11. Now that didn't bother me nearly as much because 11 is not that late, even though I was already in bed. I think my day of exercise Saturday took a lot more out of me than I thought because I was exhausted all day Sunday and was really just looking forward to going to bed early and enjoying my clean sheets I just changed and getting a good nights sleep. But no, stupid leaf blower man decided to cut the wonderful silence of the night with a sound just slightly less obnoxious than a Harley with its engine revving or a garbage truck. I thought about yelling something but he wouldn't have been able to hear me and I even thought about going out there and having some words but that didn't seem safe so I just fumed in bed for about half an hour.

This is not the way I like to start my week, so I got coffee this morning to make me feel better. That helped along with having Donavan McNabe as my FF quarterback. I am currently 2nd out of 10 in my pool so I am not doing so bad at the moment.

And leaf blower man you better watch your back, there is some vigilantism coming your way.

Yeah, pretty sure that's a city code violation and you could have had him cited if you wanted to.

You should join Facebook and we'll start a "I hate leaf blowers group." In fact, I think I will anyway.

Don't you to be affiliated with a college or university to be on facebook?
If that is the case I will just wear the t-shirt that has a guy with the leaf blower and a big red circle with the cross thru it.

i couldn't gleen from your post whether the leaf blower guy was doing this at 4:30 in the morning on sunday? or 4:30 in the afternoon when you were trying to take a nap.
morning=bad
afternoon=not bad

Morning. It was 4:30 AM on Monday morning.

I see where you were confused, I meant that the noise of a leaf blower pisses me off all hours of the day but it is that much worse when it is 4:30 in the AM.
