Just now I was welding in *MY OWN BACK YARD*, thank you very much. My bitchy next door neighbor comes over and complains that I am blinding him.
1) He works in a factory. He has worked in that factory as long as I've lived here (1988). Surely some time in the past 25 years somebody has welded something in his factory. Arc light should not be a novel concept to the man.
2) It's my fucking back yard. If I want to weld in my own back yard, that's my business. Stop looking in my yard and the light won't bother you.
I've been debating whether to cut down the out of control bushes between our houses. He just made the decision for me -- as soon as my garage is finished, the bushes are coming down so he can look at it all the time. I might even add on to the damn thing just to spite him.
There's an easement on that side of the property so I can't extend the building right up to his property line, but I can pour concrete....
