My middle-aged kinda-ambiguously-gay latino-looking neighbor wants me to move some bush clippings I heaped on the front sidewalk plot outside of his house. So the whole purpose of the roughly 3-4 square feet is for a tree to be there, right? His tree got taken out a few months ago and it’s just been a patch of dirt since. So I’m like “yeah… won’t the city take them when they put in your tree?”
He confirms that the city will indeed do that, then insists on getting them moved off of his dirt castle and includes an emphatic and scolding “…Not in front of MY house.”
As it actually is not a big issue, I reassure him “No problem hahaha, I’ll take care of it”
Some people get riled up over the silliest stuff. His front yard’s not even well-tended or impressive, I seriously don’t have a clue why it’s caused qualms for him.
But whatever, gotta respect his wishes and be responsible hah.
But odd nonetheless.
