What is the proper Arfcom response to a guy who starts mowing his lawn at 6:51am on a Sunday morning ?

For a weekday maybe, but a weekend ? I thought the unwritten man-law was not before 8:00am...

The standard Arfcom reaction is over-react. Stir in a little conspiracy to taste.

draw down?
time sensitive claymores?
bang his wife?

Do nothing. What seems early to you is late to other people. Some people get up and do their chores early. You may say you "deserve your sleep" but what is this really disrupting in your life? I bet if these same neighbors let their grass grow several feet high you'd be posting to complain that the eyesore is bringing down your property value.

Molitov Cocktail followed by suppressive fire from your wife who is stationed on the roof while you infiltrate his yard and disable said equipment with a close range blast of double buck....followed by E&E covered by a smoke grenade barrage.

Seed his yard with softball sized rocks and wait until you hear him break the crankshaft in his mower?

If he understood English, that might be an option. Let's just say the demograhics in the neighborhood are going thru substantial changes the last couple of years.

Let me add, that I've been here since '84 and this is the first time any neighbor ever started a lawn mower or a generator or any kind of 2-cycle engine prior to 8:00am on a weekend. (only during the period following Hurricane Wilma being an exception)

Just get someone to park a Border Patrol truck in your driveway on the weekends.

When I was in my teens and early twenties I used to go out on Friday and Saturday nights until 3-5 AM. I would wake up on Saturday and Sunday mornings at around 11 AM.

At that time I felt the same way about neighbors.

Now that I am a little bit older I can't stay out so late and I always wake up relatively early on the weekends. Since i am up early I like to get the chores done so I have the rest of the day free to enjoy however I see fit.

So my question is, how old are you?
Link Posted: 12/2/2007 11:19:22 AM EDT
A lawnmower? Thats nothing, I have a farmer for a neighbor that runs tractors and combines at first daylight.
Link Posted: 12/2/2007 11:21:37 AM EDT
Mow your yard at like midnight,,, my neighbor a long time ago in a state far far away would mow his shit at like 5 am before he went to work and sometimes at like 10 PM,,,, so I flew late one night and needed to mow my grass so I got the mower out proceeded to piss him the F*** off and he let me know it too. So we both agreed that 5 am and midnight were not appropriate times to mow and never had any issues with it after that. And the rest of the neighbors were happy we were getting along too because the same M***F**** swiped my lawn chairs too,, although I couldn't prove the ones in his yard were mine I was SOL.................so a few threats towards me and his ass was owned... Mow your stuff at midnight and have a constructive talk when he comes out and bitches........

55, not that it makes any difference. i felt the same way when i bought the house and I was only a 32 year old then..

Damn the guy who may have to work lots of hours or maybe two jobs. Fuck him if his grass needs to be cut on what little time he can get in the daylight.

I know what it's like to work two jobs and be forced to work at home at inopportune times.

If you make enough fire and smoke the Channel 4 chopper is bound to show up does that count?

Uh-oh. Sounds like you got yourself one of those hard-working diligent immigrant types rather than a shiftless bum who lays around and drives property values down.

Bring a sixpack over and find out your friend's name.

Yes, my home is on the edge of my property. He farms within fifty feet of my home. I don't complain since its only a few weeks out of the year.

I worked 3rd shift for a while, I can pretty much sleep through anything that isn't in my house.

Ring his door bell at 4AM tomorrow morning, and and ask him what time he plans on mowing that morning.

Well unless they snuck that farm in there after you bought the house, you should've been ready for farming to be going on at the farm next to your house.

I'm up at the asscrack of dawn even on weekends so it wouldn't bother me. But, here's a funny story.

I live in a rural area which is prone to migrating 'city folk' who think country living is the end all/be all of civilization. They have watched too many episodes of Andy Griffith and want to move to Mayberry. Think NYC moving to New England with their millions.

Anyway, I was at gun club meeting a week or two ago and we were discussing how the new members of the community [read that as assclowns from NYC] are trying everything imaginable to close down the club. One gentlemen related the tale of a farmer friend of his who has a NYC transplant neighbor...

she asked him to change the time he milked his cows because it was interfering with her sleep. I shit you not.

So that makes it OK to be an inconsiderate ass?

I've been in that situation too. However, I don't see my personal circumstances as being a trump card for not being an asshole to my neighbors.

Your mileage may vary.

Now you know all you have to do is rack that shotgun and the lawnmower will just quit. If it doesn't some bird shot is good enough. I mean you only want to wound it not kill it.
