I love fireworks as much as anyone else here. The bigger the better. But there is a time and a place. Well right now is the time, but some places are not as well suited as others.
Most of the people where I live are pretty cool and we have large yards. Mine is about ten acres. Next to us is a subdivision that borders my propery. These are about acre lots.
Well a new guy moved in and he has been setting off the ocassional salute for about the past two weeks. Today as I was driving buy I noticed a bunch of cars and someone unloading some home made mortars. I figured he must be having a party. I couldn't help but stop and talk a bit. Tried telling them that those 4 and 5 inch steel pipes weren't that safe, especially since their neighbors are only about 100 feet away. I was looked at like I was from Mars.
Right now there is volley after volley of salutes going off. It would really ruin their party if one went off in the gun.
How do you deal with morons like that?
