File under “shaking fist at clouds”

When I am god-emperor, tree trimmers will only be allowed to work from 8-5 M-F. Yes, I know that such things are necessary evils if you want to have trees in the ‘burbclaves, and we do. But under my regime, chainsaws and chippers will only be allowed during the hours when the majority of folks are off at work. Not at 7 pm on a Saturday evening. And all afternoon on a weekend.

Blue laws are ridiculous for selling liquor, but under any decent regime, 40 hours a week is time enough for lawn and tree maintenance. There’s got to be some time when there’s some peace and quiet in the ‘hood.
