    My friend, Jim, has a 17 year old son who is pretty much a loaf. Jim cracked the whip and told his son to cut the gr***. His son hopped on the crapsman tractor and made a bee-line right to the horse shoe pit, hitting the horse shoe pin. He bent the blade and said "I guess I can't cut the gr*** now Dad". Jim said "oh yes you can ,use the push mower".

    LOL, when I was a newlywed, we got into a "discussion" about her never taking a turn at mowing the lawn (at the time I was at a job which required some 12 hour days) She proceeded to take the brand new Toro 2-cycle and run it over the boundary stone-goodbye Toro, and she has yet to mow a lawn since.
