Lazy Assholes


I'm sitting here, minding my own business when I hear someone start throwing things around outside my window.

Ok, let me tell you what is outside my window:

Outside my bedroom window is the back of the building where there is a sidewalk, a small fence and beyond that small fence a gravel area that is the property of the phone company. I could, if really talented at spitting, spit on the phone company building that is how close it is to this apartment building. The fence merely seperates the two properties.

So I look out my bedroom window and down, (I'm on the 2nd floor), and I see a black and white camo hat with a person underneath, throwing broken furniture bits INTO the yard of the phone company.

The tenant who lives below me went to talk to him, he speaks Spanish so I have no idea what the hell he was saying, but I did hear garbage thrower answering back in English.

His excuse for doing this? For littering on to the phone company's land?

"I was told to move this stuff and there's nowhere else to put it."

Um....not 30 feet to his right is a long row of garbage cans that these broken pieces of furniture can fit into. But that apparently is far, far too difficult. It's so much easier to just toss garbage over the fence into the phone company's back gravel yard isn't it?

Getting rid of stuff does not mean toss it into your neighbor's yard and make it their problem. Getting rid of stuff means pick the shit up and either throw it in the garbage can OR, put it into your car and drive it to the dump.

Why does this bother me? Because these fucking lazy assed ghetto shit heads CONSTANTLY do this kind of crap. Don't want that bed anymore? Just throw it in the side yard of the building. Someone will take care of it. Don't want that desk anymore? Break it into little pieces and then leave it in the back yard so that one day, some asshole wearing a black and white camo hat, who was hired by the landlord to "get rid of this stuff", can throw it over the fence into someone elses yard.

I am really fucking sick and tired of discourteous, lazy piles of shit and they seem to be in abundance around here.

Now this next bit is going to really tick some people off but I truly do not care:

Why, why, WHY would someone fight hard to come to this country for a better life and then treat their new country so poorly? Why would you risk your life on a fucking raft and float for 90 miles only to find a place to live in this country and then treat the land like your personal garbage can? Why would you face jail time under a dictator if caught before touching land in this country only to insist everyone learn YOUR language and then act rudely towards them anyway simply because they are not from your native country?

I don't fucking understand this in the slightest.

And I also want to know, who the hell do I call now that I've witnessed this person throwing garbage into another yard instead of throwing it away. I mean, that is littering and that is against the law but do the police care or will they tell me to call someone else? And I didn't get a good look at the person...just the top of his hat. Maybe they can contact the landlord and fine him. Won't that be fun to let the landlord know that a tenant complained? Yay! Maybe I'll get evicted! Whatever, I'm not letting this one go...I just don't know where to start.

[update] So I decided to go to the phone company and let them know what I saw. They were very happy I did this. I also took photos and they asked me to email them. I did, along with a letter stating what I had seen.

Well guess what? Guess who's in the back right now picking up all the shit he threw over the fence? You guessed it, Mr. Garbage Head. My downstairs neighbor may have an idea that I ratted out litter bug and he was down there just now speaking to him. In Spanish though so I don't know what is being said. I did ask the phone company to keep me anonymous so hopefully no retaliations. Fuckers. Here's one photo I took:

"lazy assed ghetto shit heads"
ROFL! That is awesome!

My mom used to always wonder the same thing. She'd notice that folks would immigrate from one place or another, bitch about how bad it was there all the time, then instantly start doing all the shit that people did in the old country that made it so miserable in the first place. Seems sort of counterintuitive, I'd think.

It's like MJ sang, "I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways."

(Then, he went and diddled a young boy.)

HAHA! You're a hero! People act this way because they get away with it. This time the fuckjob didn't. Maybe he'll think twice next time.

Many people are poor through no fault of their own. But some people are poor because they are lazy, selfish, have no work ethic, and think the rest of the world is there for their convenience. I have a feeling your neighbor is the latter.
