Am I being too sensitive here?

So work's been kind of crappy recently. The USPS is closing processing facilities, and our local one has been moved south over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge (that pretty looking bridge in the USF tile to the right). Anyway, problem with that is our mail is being delayed, often by over an hour, every day. So we're starting later, getting off later, etc.

Upshot of this, is that I haven't mowed my yard this week. And it's a bit overgrown. But that's a good thing because it's a bahia lawn and the little seed antenna thingies are all over the place. So a good mowing and raking will help reseed the lawn. Yeah.

So I get home last night . . . and my yard's been mowed. By someone. And no one's stepping up to claim responsibility.

And I'm feeling a bit . . . violated . . . here. Is that wrong?

I work long exhausting hours at an often sh*tty job. But I keep my stuff as well kept as possible. The house needs painting, but it doesn't look bad. I mow and edge and trim my bushes regularly. No rusted cars on concrete blocks or boarded up windows. It's a nice middle class house in a middle class neighborhood.

I don't make noise. I don't have loud drunken arguments in my front yard night after night. I don't play loud music until 1:00 in the morning. I'm not running a car repair business out of my garage until 10:00 or 11:00 every night. I mind my own business and would appreciate it if others would do the same.

Too much to ask?

Lolz! Must have missed that one.

Seriously, the whole thing has me wondering what the heck is going on.

Thanks for commenting :-)
