The meaning of "Leaves" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Leaves have been raked into piles mean?
A: She is raking leaves...
Q: What does Leaves me asking for 2 to the head mean?
A: "2 to the head" is a reference to shooting someone in the head. One bullet is almost certain death, but the second bullet is to leave absolutely zero doubt that they will not survive. It is often used to described unsanctioned execution style killings.

So, if something "leaves you asking for 2 to the head," you are saying that something is so unpleasant that certain death would be preferable. A similar sentiment is found in the phrase "put me out of my misery." Comments like these are not literal, but an exaggerated comment on your feelings toward whatever you are commenting on.

Example:

My coworker is so annoying. Having to listen to her all day leaves me wishing for two to the head.
