When I was growing up, my mom told me to never walk on people’s front lawn. That is one lesson that has stuck with me even still. Unfortunately, so many people in our society do not respect other people’s lawn, or even their property.
When I look out my window and see people walk on my lawn I actually get offended. See, my roommates and I live on a corner lot. Walkers seem to think that because we have so much lawn, they are just allowed to take a shortcut across it.
That’s not how I was raised, which is probably why it bothers me so much. There seems to be a general lack of respect growing in our community regarding other people and their property.
Here comes the clincher though. When I say lawn I really mean dry dirt and brown weeds. So is it really a big deal that people are walking over my weeds? It’s not a big deal that people walk over my weeds, it’s the principle of the matter though. People need to show some respect for other’s property.
