    He doesn't know why he drove on the lawn? That's wacky for sure!
    Wait a minute! I know what happened. He probably remembered you mentioning that it was four years old and you wanted a new one but, you were waiting for that one to die. Let me guess, he asked you what a new one cost?
    Lucky you are, a lot of people would have balked even if it was their fault.

    I've thought I'd seen some badly injured equipment but that for sure takes the cake! At least you got something for a new one though!
