You Got Me Beggin' You for Mercy

Aaron began Father's Day with a nice visit from the local fire department.

Yeah.

You see, he likes to illegally burn yard waste. And he has this horrible habit of burning really smoke-y, disgustingly stinky stuff and quite honestly, I'm surprised he got away with it for over a year.

Okay, maybe in his defense he fully didn't know he couldn't burn yard stuff, but I TOLD HIM SO AND HE DIDN'T LISTEN. Men. Gah.


In any case, our fireplace thing-y (which is totally ghetto and I've hated all along) has got to go. The fire department said so.

Oh, darn.

Wellll...he can't say he wasn't warned. did you just stand inside the house and giggle while the FD let him know the rules?

He is just a simple caveman. Your anti-incinerating laws frighten and confuse him.

Have you forgotten that MAN (not woman) discovered fire? I guess next you'll be trying to stop him from enjoying things with WHEELS!

So the FD won't even respond when my neighbor kids have a bonfire in a pit in the ground - which they are pouring starterfluid on - and poking with sticks....But your dh gets told to get rid of his 'thing'?

I really must learn how to talk to the FD when I call 911...
