I Just Mowed My Lawn
I hope it's the last time this season.
Libby my new next door neighbor has a son who works nights, so she asked me to mow early in the morning before he goes to bed.
But if I mow my backyard before noon, the grass is still wet and I can't really get a good cut.
Time for vodka.

You are obviously teasing us to inquire about a larger story, right?

No two ways about it, OP. You’re going to have to kill your neighbors.

Tell Libby she can mow your lawn whenever she feels like it - otherwise you will mow your lawn when it is convenient for you.

A neighborhood doesn't revolve around the demands of one Frau. Now when it's convenient for you.

Libby’s son needs to invest in ear plugs.
OP needs to invest in a spine.

Knock on the door so you make sure you wake the son up. Say loudly, but don't shout, "Looks like my lawn needs mowing!" Hand him a pair of ear plugs. Smille and walk away.

Tell us more about this son. Do he like bridge and Lhaso Apsos?

Is the neighbor’s son named Joel by any chance?

At least the kid is working. Who's doing THAT these days?

Tell Libby to buy her son some fucking earplugs.

Can't you mow on the weekends at just about anytime?

Be sure you blow those leaves in the evening.

Get the son to mow your lawn for you, then invite him over for a soak in your hot tub and a sip of absinthe.

Mow mine next. I’ll give you an extremely large glass of ice water afterwards.

I assume your neighbors are Libby Gelman-Waxner and her son Mitchell Sean.

I do honey, R23. Some of us have lawns. Some of us ^^^^ have a tarmac with a view of a White Castle.

I have a lawn, dear. I also have a service. Don't sass me, especially if you're poor.

I just shrug and say to take it up with our mower, who says to take it up with his boss the gardener, who tells her to fuck herself with her son's alarm clock.

Tell her to tell her son to change jobs or shifts.

Offer to help the lad fall asleep if you accidentally wake him.

Find someone with a herd of goats and offer them free grazing rights.

Get a push mower. I have one, and it's great!

Thanks, everyone for the wonderful advice and comments. I am very happy at how my backyard looks.
I shall keep you posted if anything else happens. Soon it will be snow blowing season and that could cause more excitement.
I will also tell you that the local water company put in new meters, and the gravel they put in my driveway suddenly fell into a sinkhole. I stopped my SmartCar down the street where they were still working and told them about it. This morning, a bulldozer with a bucket full of gravel stopped by my house and the hole was filled in!

I'm sorry, I should have signed my post.
BTW the son's name is Sebastian. Do you suppose he is a poet?

Really, you don't have to.

OP, I work overnight and have for many years. You might want to suggest to Sebastian that he get a white noise machine, a sleeping mask, and perhaps a fan or two. I've had those for the last x10 years (at least), and never hear anything going on outside.
You also sound like a considerate neighbour, but you should be able to do what you want in your yard, when you want to do it. Just because he works overnight shouldn't hinder you from doing yard work, jacking him off in his sleep, etc.
