Friggin' Farmer -- take that hoe and shove it.
I guess I should start off by saying I live behind a farm. Now the farmer of said farm is pissing me off. Since he wants to build a new barn, down go two 100+ ft trees. I like these trees. I used to climb on parts of them. They provide shade. But hey, it's in the name of progress, right?
To the average person, it would seem as though the trees were on my property. This is because the fence around the farm isn't at the edge of the property lines; rather, it is retracted in by a good 5-10 ft. What person builds a fence that doesn't meet at the edge of the boundary?
So, now I've got at least 20 chickens running wild through my yard. Eating the bird seed that was not intended for them. Yeah, I know, they're birds -- what's the big deal? Well, damn it -- they aren't supposed to be on my land; I'd rather feed the squirrels (everybody knows that actual birds rarely get to eat the bird seed.)
Finally, the rest of the farmers' property is run down. All the buildings seem to need major restoration. But instead of fixing those, he decides to build a new stable.
Bah, humbug. Merry christmas, I'm destroying trees and you can't do anything to stop me.
