During my walk today I had to fend off more than one idiot with a leaf blower. I suddenly realized how intensely I LOATHE these bloody things!!!
I fail to see the point of them, quite frankly. Outside of producing excessive noise pollution what is the point of a leaf blower? All it does is relocate a mess from one place to another, polluting the air and environment along the way. The leaves eventually have to be picked up by… someone.
Growing up, I used a really cool device called a rake. With me as operator, it gathered the leafs into a pile and then I used an accompanying invention called a bag to gather up the leaves and remove them entirely from the site… what a concept.
