Why firecrackers and M80’s?

I really hate fireworks and the mindset behind the adults using them.

I am in a house with a 96-year-old mother-in-law, two skittish dogs and open windows. Behind my house,on the street behind me, rather, are idiots who are liquored up and shooting off firecrackers and M80’s, or at least that’s what I think they are called.

Is it to scare the crap out of everyone? Congratulations, boys,you’ve done it. Is it a contest to see who has the biggest rocket? **calling Dr. Freud**.This hamlet has x amount of policemen, and the troll the streets looking for the illegal fireworks.

What a shame there aren’t more cops looking for them: if the culprits are caught and fined, maybe my taxes would come down.
