Oh how I loathe thee

I did a post awhile ago stating that we have two apple trees in our front yard.  When they bloomed this spring they were g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!  You could not find a single flaw to these trees.  A few months later and the only thing I can think of is why haven't we cut these damn things down yet!  We have complete strangers who come by our house asking if they can have apples, it was okay the first time or so but it happens a lot!  Neighbors are always in our yard picking apples, I can deal with that.  I don't mind when our friends come over as long as they at least stop in and say hi too.  But here's the deal: there are apples everywhere!  We can't even mow the yard without shooting apple juice out the side of the mower - and no! I'm no exaggerating!  Once I even slipped on an apple with my left foot and FELL landing on an apple with my right knee... I was so bruised! (my pride and my knee!)  Here's what we're dealing with now.... the husband finally broke down and raked the fallen apples down so that we could mow.  

Anyone want some apples?

People come up and ask you if they can have some? That's kind of ballsy! I am going to show this to my husband. He was DYING to have an apple tree until one in our neighborhood started throwing apples on to our path, which got squished, and then started to reek, which then started to attract bugs. The desire went quickly after that.
