Dust in the wind

Posted on Tue, Jun 22, 2010 at 12:08 AM

To My Neighbor:

Last weekend we honestly did not know the brick workers were going to be arriving at our home to finish a job. They were in the area and dropped by to do finish the brick re-pointing they had started earlier. We were not home so we could not possibly forewarn you or we would have.

Grinding out bricks creates dust and that is uncontrollable. What was controllable was your temper. There was no need to stand on your deck and scream down at me like a bloody madman in front of my 6 year old daughter and the workers - all because some dust blew over to your side and landed on some plants and your deck.

We could (sort of) understand your inconvenience so my wife decided to do the neighborly thing and come over to apologize. I could hear you and your wife screaming like raving psychos at my wife who was sincerely apologetic. I had all I could do to not come around the corner and shut you down. How's the blood pressure??? My wife said your fists were clenched and you were pacing around in a defensive manner, veins bulging. Sorry, how old are you? I hope you feel ashamed (though I know you don't) because all the neighbors could hear you raving.

What a man you are... pretty much threatening my wife who wouldn't say 'boo' to anyone. The best part? ..."MY CAT GOT DUST ON IT". See, this is why the world is screwed up. People like you. Selfish, ignorant people who only think of themselves and not others. The oceans are full of pollution, people have life threatening diseases, people are starving and living on the street and you go beyond crazy because some dust landed on your property.

Someday you will need to do renovation work. But guess what? We're understandable and reasonable people. We realize that in the city it is tight quarters and you have to be accommodating. You might want to think about wrapping your house and property in bubble wrap in the meantime... Wait, you already live in a bubble.

Oh, and all the people who walk by and tell us how nice we've made that dump of a house look... makes it all worth the whining we have to listen to from you as this was not the first. —Reno Dude
