    I've been there before. The only thing u can do is show him what you know and be repetitive with him.

    Not sure if it will help everyone but this is what I do.

    At least for a first cut if not each time on weird yards.

    I pick a point on the other side of the yard right in the middle and mow strait to that point. Then each and every pass after that no matter how crooked the yard is ends up strait, and uniform.
