Stupid Mowers!!Posted Saturday, April 18, 2009, at 5:24 PM
You start the darn thing!
I have three mowers and all of them had a situation.
One I bought at Sears, when it was down here near Lowes. I paid close to 500.00 for this dratted thing and the main thing I wanted was it would start the first couple of times I yanked on it.
I have had surgery on both my hands and they don't take kindly to all the yanking and pulling..
"Oh yes," I was assured. "No problems with this model at all. " Liars...
So two years later I have had NOTHING but trouble out of it, and i got a used one. Ugly, old and works...
At least it starts.. until today and my husband is gone.
I yanked and yanked at the pully. Grrrrrrr
I went and got the other old mower, yank, yank no dice..
I went back to the second mower and it finally starts but the auto transmission won't engage and it is hard to push.
Good God Almighty.
About this time I am seeing red and ready to set it all blazing while I run around the pile in a mad circle laughing.
I got the lawn mowed but my blood pressure was not happy and I made the dreaded LIST.
Yes men, it is the honey do list.
Cause if I touched those things again it would be to dismember them.
Why can't they have a push mower with a auto start?
I mean please, we send monkeys and men to the moon, why not something simple like auto start mowers.
Oh well, my husband came home, and he got the list.
He is cheerfully working on it, and I am petting a cat or two, trying to lower my blood pressure.
Come by and look at the yard it is mowed, for now.
