We were out walking the dogs tonight on the trails that run through the woods in our neighborhood. In one section there are homes on one side of the trail and woods (which are HOA-owned and paid for common area) on the other. We came across a guy running wheel-barrows full of yard waste (looked like bush or tree trimmings and grass clippings) from his yard across the trail and dumping them about 6 feet off the trail. Not far enough to even be considered "in the woods", this stuff was clearly visible from the trail and it looked like ASS. Now I'm the FIRST one to say fuck the HOA because they're a bunch of power hungry, intrusive, over-stepping assholes for the most part, but god damnit it's lazy fuckers like this guy that make a need for the nazis in the first place. I said "You know it's against the proprietary rules to dump yard-waste in the common areas, right?" and as I was saying it I was thinking to myself "It shouldn't matter what the HOA rules are, that looks like SHIT and you're fucking up a nice area for those of us who try to enjoy these trails." I was almost embarrassed to be bitching about violation of an HOA rule, but the fact of the matter is, people who don't police their own shit make HOAs necessary in tight suburban areas. God I hate the burbs.....I need to move to the country.

You're complaining about a guy dumping grass clippings in the woods and you want to move to the country?

He didn't dump his stuff in the woods, which start about 10 feet off the trail, he just crossed the trail so it wasn't on his property anymore and dumped it next to the trail in a common area that is paid for and maintained by HOA fees. Keep in mind that this is in a large subdivision, so we're not talking about wilderness here, we're talking about lightly wooded areas that run through the neighborhood to provide trail areas and separation between the different developments. If everyone dumped their stuff there, it would look like crap, which is exactly why the HOA has rules against it. What should be common sense apparently isn't. If this was really "the woods", I wouldn't care, but this is supposed to be a maintained walking trail area, not a dumping ground for Mr. Lazy Fuck who doesn't want to bag up his waste for removal tomorrow morning.

Same basic principle, except that we all own the land he's dumping this stuff on, and nobody comes to pick it up, it just sits there and rots and becomes a breeding ground for whatever bugs, snakes, etc. want to nest there.

Around here I've seen plenty that just toss it over the back wall.

In the human animal the only thing that has half a chance at beating stupid out of first place
in the human traits category is lazy.

1/10 for the rant. Needs more cuss words and anger.
