You were concerned when the manufacturer a couple blocks away might have been affecting our air quality. You were ecstatic when plastic bags were banned! Yes, you and all the other concerned homeowners of our fine neighborhood have worked together to make this community what it is! A community bathed in the constant drone of leaf blowers! No leaves, you say? No matter, leaf blowers can be used for anything! Brooms are so Harry Potter. We've got 50cc two strokes that put out more toxic emissions than your new SUV ready to blow dust and debris several yards away. Don't need anything blown? That's okay, we'll run 'em for a while anyway, you're paying us.
