What would you say exactly to a person in your neighborhood who insists on burning garbage about twice a week in the evenings when it’s nice to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air?
Plastic is meant to be recycled. I do not enjoy smelling it being burned. I don’t know how someone can not care about smelling up an entire neighborhood. I’m guessing that it stinks pretty bad in their own yard. Can’t they understand that air moves around? Wood smells good burning. Paper doesn’t bother me. But that sickening smell of plastic and whatever else is just plain inconsiderate.
It was 8:30 last night and I was looking forward to going to bed and sleeping by my open window and smelling the sweet night air and awakening to the sound of birds this morning. I didn’t want my whole house to reek so I had to go around to every single window in my house; in the basement, on the first floor and then upstairs and close each one. Sure, a couple of hours later the smell would be gone, but I’m not about to get out of bed at night and go around and open all the windows just because someone in my hood is a jerk. So instead I slept in a stuffy room and wished I lived out in the middle of nowhere.
Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. How do YOU deal with people like this? I’m thinking if they’re that inconsiderate in the first place, there probly is no reasoning with them.
