I woke up at 7:10 to hear a roar outside. Looks like half the Mexican army has descended on the neighborhood to cut all the common grass. Including the field behind my back yard, about 20 yards behind my bedroom window. I cut my grass, the rest is up to the HOA.

Wait until at least 8am please hombres.

because it gets hot pretty fast, going to be 96F high in my neck of the woods. Any watering should be done early in the morning or late in the evening so it doesnt get lost to evaporation.

Call ICE.

Perhaps they'd prefer not to perform the majority of their work in the heat of the day?

I don't pay them to be comfortable. I pay them to cut the grass and trim the sidewalks.

They are Mexicans! You would think that since they are from Mexico and if they could cross the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, then they could stand a little heat in Northern Virginia.

Yep.
Not to mention you want to start earlier so you get the use of as much daylight as possible.
My day at the golf course starts at quarter to 6.

The golf course is not directly behind my bedroom window.

Wait...you've hired a lawn care company that employs illegal aliens?

Nevermind.

I for the longest time could not understand how so many seemingly low income people could live in an area where a simple townhouse costs $325,000. I then realized that all the rich people have so much landscaping work that has to be constantly kept up, that there is more work then they know what to do with. Which I guess is another reason to wake up the "poor people" like me in my townhouse at 7:10 in the morning.

Same reason I start mine before that....

Because its cooler than when you get up.

A large part of the working (construction in particular) world starts at 7:00am

Nice to get off at 3:30 and have eight hours in.

When my younger brother worked construction between college & his real job, he had to be at the site at 0530.

Seems like that's exactly what they're doing.

our company started putting up a steel building the other day at 5:00 am for a couple reasons.

you ever tried to grab a peice of steel that has been sitting in direct sunlight all day?

them sons of bitches get hot

plus you get at least a few hours to work in cooler temps instead of working in 110 degreee heat all day.
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 4:05:41 AM EST
I used to do landscaping after High School.

The reason they're starting so early is because your complex isn't the only one that they have to cut that day, plus the added benifit of it's much cooler.

I worked a small operation, we had enough customers where we would run a two week schedule, by the time you cut the last customers yard it was two weeks later and time to go back to yard # 1, that was working straight out every day. Any slack time we had was for non-regular customers.


Now I have to get my butt out of bed at 0400 on PT days and I'm lucky if I get out of the office by 1700 I look forward to the day I can sleep past 0500 in the morning.

Must be a CofC around here somewhere. Where's the "I was woken up early by some strange noises, so in my floral printed yellow pj's, I put on my pink Crocs, took my G22 out and drew down on a bunch of illegal aliens while eating a chocolate chip cookie under the lawn sprinkler" scenerio? Not one draw down in this thread at all. Wimps.

HK91s go with chocolate chip cookies, you must eat gingerbread cookies during your G22 draw-downs.

Two reasons: A) it gets hot early, B) maximizes the annoyance.

It's gonna be 110 here today (Phoenix). If I was cutting the grass your butt would have been awakened at 5:00 AM...

because they are a bunch of lazy a$$es.

landscapers start at about 6:15 - 6:30 around here. i don't blame them. who in their right mind wants to be out side in 100 degree heat working?
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 6:06:48 AM EST
I'm shocked they didn't start earlier.

When I did landscaping in high school in Alabama during the summer we started at 0530. Worked until about 0800 and quit until later afternoon.

... but that's a dry heat

Heat or not some places do have laws reguarding what time work can start. Around here it is 8am. Just because paco doesn't want to sweat more doesn't mean he can annoy the shit out of everyone that early.
But then I couldn't care less because I work nights and sleep days so everyone annoys the hell out of me.
Think I will tune up my motorcycle with the muffler off at 3am so everyone will know how I feel.
Link Posted: 6/18/2007 9:42:12 AM EST
My roofing crew started work bright and early this morning and may knock off in the peak heat of the afternoon, come back later and work until dark.

They're all white guys. Working in the heat of the afternoon sucks, is dangerous, and unhealthy.

Those silly morons...worrying about stupid things like heatstroke.
