worked for my city doing landscaping and mowing/trimming in rutland, vt. the old dudes who work there now would tell some crazy stories about how they used to be constantly drunk 24/7 and would drive the city trucks and pick up bums around rutland and drop them off in different cities in new york and new hampshire.
last summer though i was mowing our local park and some bum kept on flipping me off and throwing his shoes in front of my mower every time i went past him. he probably did this 10 times until i finally did something about it. he threw his shoes out in front of me one last time so i turned off my blades and lifted the deck of the mower and set it down on his shoes. the bum started flipping out, screaming, yelling, and swearing at me. i felt a little bad so i lifted my deck to show him that his shoes were fine and continued mowing. after he left then i talked to the other bums in the park and they told me he was some new alcoholic bum from manchester who migrated north, and that all the homeless in rutland hated him. it was pretty funny because there is gossip everywhere, even with bums.
