theres kinda an art to avoiding the long drawn out conversations with old people. my favorite method is sun glasses and the ear phones. This way you dont obviously look like your ignoring them.

but yea id take that.

If you look at the windows as you drive by on the mower you will probably notice a small gap in the blinds where those seniors are 'peeping' out at ya!

And if you are not sure how long those jobs are actually taking you, just stop and ask any one of those seniors.....they will tell you EXACTLY how long it took you.
