Val vs. Lawnmower Jock, Round 2

I'm impressed. The complaint to the school district worked for almost a week. Or, more likely, this was just the next day they were supposed to mow. *eyeroll*

Although, hey, they waited until 6:20 today! Y'know, the day I'm supposed to get to sleep in until 7:30 because I work from home? Which is a good thing because I was out Way Too Damn Late at acting class last night?

Didn't get around to looking up the noise ordinance until this morning. Once the school district office opens? I'm calling the nice lady to say she should advise their contractor that the next time they wake me up, the call will be made right away, and it will be made to the police.

Thanks. I don't foresee a problem with the school district for sure; Nice Lady was suitably appalled last week.

But dude. I know it's a big district (second only to CPS in the state) and there's bureaucracy and all, but given that it was clear that last week was not the first time they'd been told, the contractor should be SO fired by now.

It's really rather a pity that marching across the street in my pajamas with a broadsword would be Unwise. It's a terribly satisfying mental image.

CUT HIM.

Which is my oh-so-eloquent way of saying I hope you don't have to deal with the problem again, but if you do, I hope he gets the scare of his life and it removes the problem.

*snicker* I love having friends who are behind me on the whole Fun With Pretend Violence thing, rather than wondering if they should call the authorities to lock me away.

Word. The violent fantasies involving explosives under the hood of the mower are kinda fun.

I have a friend who has a trebuchet she'd be happy to loan you. Load it with the ammo of your choice -- rocks, used cat litter, whatever.
