Neighbor Brian is one of the neighbors I don't think I have ever mentioned here. A little while ago I heard a chainsaw coming from his house; since he is not the smartest guy, and is always drink I went over to make sure nobody got hurt. It is a good thing I did! He was using the saw one handed above his head, and the dogs where running around loose, plus, he obviously had no PPE on. I also saw a huge cloud of smoke, and his saw was cutting very slow, so I knew he had no oil in it. I told him to put the saw down, and I would go get my saws and do it for him.
Surprisingly, he put the saw down and while I walked back to my house I did not hear the saw start up until I was about 25 feet away from him on my way back. While I was walking back, neighbor Andrew got home (who is Brian's son-in-law). He was very confused when he saw me walking through his yard with all of my safety gear on and a saw in each hand! When I filled him in on what Brian was doing he could not thank me enough for coming to help. When Brian had first seen me he was making fun of me and all of the gear I had on. I was just about to start when Brian told me that he did not want my to cut the little 12' tree onto his fence; the tree was leaning at about 75 degrees, so it was not going the other way unless I pulled it with one of the PKs, which was pointless because it would not harm the fence anyway.
He went to get another beer, and while on his way I started the saw and he saw I was going to drop it on the fence. So, he ran (or tried to anyway) back to stop me. I did not know he came back until he started yelling at Andrew about how I was going to crush his fence; remember, he had to be yelling pretty loud to be heard over the saw, and my ear protection!
I stopped, when he threw a branch at me. At this point, I left and took all of my stuff... plus his chainsaw. I told him I was going to sharpen it for him, while he did not believe me at first we convinced him I was going to sharpen it for him. I said I would be back tomorrow. Andrew told me he would not be home in the morning, so Andrew and I will finish it up then when he is not there.
I only went over because I did not want anybody to get hurt, and by the looks of it there is a good chance he would have hurt himself, or one of his dogs.
