The Astounding Level of Petty

So I was cruising around local news stories on-line when I ran across this.

The level of some people's pettiness astounds me. I get not wanting the neighborhood to look like a dump. I understand not attracting rodents and bugs and go knows what else to the area... but come on - your garbage can on your driveway? Ours happens to be kept in our garage simply because of the way our house is laid out. I guess most of the other neighbors are too... but not everywhere. I drive all over San Jose and see garbage cans tucked neatly on the sides of houses or driveways. Still in public view obviously if I can see them from my car.. but come on... do we really have nothing better to watch out for and complain about? ESPECIALLY in Oakland of all places?
