If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, like Shakespeare wrote poetry, like Beethoven composed music; sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper, who swept his job well.’ 
— Martin Luther King Jr.

At my MiL’s house (TEMPORARILY) and she just interrupted my lunch break for a lengthy story about how a neighbor lady (Alice) swept the leaves off another neighbor’s (Bob’s) lawn and into the street and how she, my MiL (Carol) reacted.
Alice noticed that Bob - who is in his late 80s - had a lot of leaves on his lawn that had suddenly fallen off of his trees so she went out and used a small dustpan and dustbroom to sweep up leaves and ended up dumping them in the street.
Carol saw this and got incensed - the street sweeper was coming tomorrow and would never be able to pick up that many leaves (it totally would have) so Carol waited until Alice went home to go sweep Bob’s leaves out of the street into her trash bins.
Bob came out and saw Carol sweeping and said “Aren’t you sweet,” and tried to thank her. Carol emphasized that she wasn’t doing this for Bob, that Alice had swept the leaves into the street and that’s city property and it was irresponsible for her to do so. Carol really wasn’t doing this for Bob, she was doing this because people walk around the neighborhood and the street sweeper wouldn’t be able to pick it up and she didn’t want the leaves to blow into her own yard.
Bob insisted on thinking this was nice of her, invited her in for tea, which she very reasonably refused because Bob wasn’t wearing a mask and wasn’t doing a great job of keeping social distancing. Carol went home, forgot the matter, and the next day Bob rang the doorbell at 8am with a thank-you pie, so Carol is now trying to figure out how to lock the gate so that she can still get amazon and mail deliveries but not have to interact with neighbors.
She is furious because now she can’t walk her dog on that street in case Alice or Bob see her.
As someone who has worked really hard to befriend my new neighbors I am *amazed* at the effort this lady put into UNDOING community support for an isolated elderly man.

So I was woken up by a siren and freaked the fuck out thinking Australia actually had sirens for like weather and bombs. (My country town has like only school drill sirens )
It was just the fucking street sweeper getting stuck in our street reversing and fucking around.
Half asleep humans panic over stupid shit. Our human monkey brains do not do well when groggy. It’s either continue to sleep or you’re like me and it runs away with horrible thoughts.
Like that fucking moth you get in your room that sounds like a robber ratting through your everything. Or that one piece of hair that moves on your face and WHOSH instant spider panic mode activate.
Humans are also easy to trigger. I can’t walk around a corner with out being surprised. I have learnt not to scream only the loud nose in hail. I inhailed rice up my nose when eating sushi doing that!
