This geek does not appreciate country hicks

Ug. Some of the people around here! Yesterday I went over to help feed a
neighbor's dogs, cats, goats, rabbits, chickens and sheep
while they were away.

Just feeding them was fine, but what bothered me was how, for lack of a better term, 'bubu' they are.
The top of their chicken coop was a pickup bed cover.
They had rotten boards and rusty metal parts laying around.
Their house looked like it had not been painted since the civil war.
And its full of junk.
They had empty gas cans, spray bottles, and other garbage lying around.
Their sheds are jammed with junk.
Their cars are rusty, their tractors seat has a hole letting foam out.
I think you have the picture by now.
Why are some people like that? Don't they care about the mess, about what things look like and what people think about them? How could anyone be so very different from a geek?
