Got Cited

I got cited $60 for not having cut the grass. Some asshole must have come by and measured my grass and found out that I was a half an inch over the limit. First of all it has not rained here for ages and I was not going to kill the grass so I can trim it a half an inch. Ok, now I am thinking I should just pour cement on my front lawn and be done with this grass business. They can kiss my butt after that.

Holy crap!

I didn't realize Baltimore was so bizarre.

If you'd cut it they probably would have cited you for killing the lawn.

Oh, wait was this actually a civil municipal citation or was it one of those assessments from an HOA/board, that sort of thing?

Fascist barstards! It's Dubya's fault. This sort of thing would never have happened under Slick Willy's administration.

Typical liberal self-victimization. You fail to follow the rules, then bitch about it when the rules are enforced. Well, you lazy ass, get up off the damned couch and cut your yard. Or pay some neighborhood kid to do it - all of it is cheaper than the $60 ticket!



(Just kiddin', Prof...sucks to be a Marylander).



P.S. I'm limited to 10 images in my message. Who has the time to set limits for the number of smileys I want to put into my message? It doesn't consume any additional bandwidth or storage to reference a smiley 100,000 times or 10! Fascists! SHEEEEESH!

It was the neighborhood lawnboy that turned you in because he's pissed you won't hire him to cut your grass!
