Open Letter to the Rochester Resident Mowing His Lawn at 2:38 AM
True story of an incident that happened in Rochester, Minnesota at 2:38 am.
Have you ever watched the movie "The 'Burbs"? At times, I feel like this movie is my life.
DISCLAIMER: I have some amazing neighbors who are all so genuine and kind and I know would be there to help us if we ever needed a stick of butter or where I could run if there was ever an emergency.
I have one neighbor though that likes to wakes me up in the middle of the night. A lot. This letter is all about the latest incident that happened on a glorious morning at 2:38 am.
To the guy in Rochester, Minnesota that decided to mow his lawn at 2:38 am,
Hello. I am your neighbor.
You may not realize this but I am on a radio morning show, which means, I get up super early to get to work. Your little jaunt with your lawnmower for over an hour meant that I only got 3 hours of sleep. I went to work tired, cranky, but...thanks to you...I had a very good topic for the show.
I did try to fall asleep while you were mowing. I even took my COVID masks that I have a stash of and put them over my ears and my eyes to try to drown out the noise so I could attempt to fall asleep again.
Now that I'm rested up a bit and not as mad, I would just love it if you would never do that again.
I know there might be a few people in the world that don't believe me when I say that my neighbor was mowing his lawn at 2:38 am, but to prove them wrong, I did try to take a photo. Unfortunately, because it was 2:38 in the morning, it is also completely dark outside. So, yeah, the photo didn't really work. But here it is just in case you wanted to see it.
