I often wonder how better the world would be if we all focused our energies on the substantial stuff.
Instead, I see countless examples of authority being used for the dumbest stuff ever. The fact that our HVAC device can be seen from the street temporarily seems care about a actually minor issue from any perspective. But if you happen to be a member of the HOA enforcement arm in our planned community, it’s so not a minor issue. Again, why are we wasting time on stuff care about our HVAC device when there are real needs that should be addressed. I’m not at war with the plan of an HOA. While I suppose the need for an HOA is often grossly overstated, I understand the need. We all want to protect our property values as our homes are substantial time investments. But having the HOA come down on myself and others over a ridiculous, minor heating as well as cooling situation is laughable. And honestly, that’s the way I’m addressing all the threats from the HOA. We took out a dying hedge that was hiding the HVAC device on the outside of our home. We replaced that hedge as well as are now just waiting a few months for it to grow in a bit more. The HVAC device will once again be hidden from view. But that’s not fantastic enough for the HOA. They want a fence constructed as well as painted while the hedge grows. I told them to get stuffed as well as they could contract our lawyer with any further threats.
