Neighbor raking leaves into the street

I have a neighbor across the street from me (I live just outside of Denver), and, as a cartoon I have on my refrigerator depicts 2 desert islands right next to each other with a stranded man on one, and a donkey on the other – and the caption says “No matter where you move to, there’s always one Jackass for a neighbor” – he is that neighbor.

I came home yesterday and witnessed him in the middle of the day raking all of his leaves into the street.   He was trying to do is during the day when nobody is home, but he doesn’t know that I work from home, so I was able to witness his shenanigans.

There’s a pile of leaves in the street large enough that you have to drive around it.    He quickly finished and then scurried inside.

At first I was taken aback, and tried to imagine that this was standard procedure in other parts of the country, and he was just bringing his technique with him.

Not until that evening when a number of other neighbors were out in the street commenting on his “jackassed-ness” that I knew that this was just not Kosher.

It was an amazing thing to see.  Unfortunately, this person has young kids, and no doubt they will learn his tricks of laziness.
