[Insert string of expletives here]

Soooooo...the landscapers showed up today, and I'd been thinking to myself of how I would need to protect the flower stalk from my Lamb's Ears that was growing at an awkward angle out over the lawn. So I saw them roll up in their truck, and immediately went out and placed one of our recycle bins in front of the stalk, shielding it from the weed eaters and mowers soon to come. I had little faith in the workers that come to cut the grass, so I set up my video camera to see how they would respond to my flower protection setup. Would they go around it? Would they remove the container and see what it was protecting and GO AROUND IT?

NO, THEY FUCKING REMOVED THE BIN AND PROCEEDED TO RUN THE PLANT OVER!

I went out and complained to the crew leader and got the "Oh, I'm so sorry about that" BS. So I got the number of the company and let them have it, then I called my property management company and filed a complaint with them. This is not the first time that something like this has happened, where the careful tending of my garden is so viciously and carelessly destroyed by mindless idiots daydreaming about who knows what. I'm fucking pissed! I wish they'd just buy me a mower and weed eater and I'd do it myself!
