The hoa president in my neighborhood is a real asshole. If the grass gets a little tall, he bitches like hell and goes and gets the mower himself. Nothing is on blocks and you damn sure don’t drive or park in the grass. We have driveways and parking spots for that. Our fees are outrageous but we refuse to pay. No one else wants the responsibility or the work.
But one of the benefits is the president gets to screw the other resident once every few months.
