    OK here's the scene. It's 6pm, your knees are getting weak from hunger, and you are mowing grannys yard. Every time you make a pass by her kitchen window, you get a nice smell of a 7 course meal!! This makes me have visions of ordering a #3 Extra Value Meal from McDonalds!! To make things worse, when I'm through mowing, this lady proceeds to tell me everything she is cooking!! How about throwing a little snack to your lawn guy????? Gotta go, getting hungry!!

    McDonalds recently changed the menu #'s. Is the double quarter pounder meal still a #3?

    Don't know, can't stand fast food. After working under a chef for 2 years fast food is such a stomach turner. Wait! I take that back, I have been to Subway from time to time. Go Jared!

    I used to mow for this little old lady, "RIP". She would always have a roast lamb cooking on their regular day. Used to drive me crazy. Smelt sooooooo good!

    Subway is the go for fast (or not so) food. Just had a new one open up local to me. Very Handy. Too Handy

    Great story and it reminds me of a customer of mine. Very nice lady who is an excellent baker. One day I was on the mower and the wind was strong from the south. when I was on the north side of the house I had that weak knee feeling of smelling home made bread. When I was on the windward side, it was gone. I spent lots of time mowing the north side and when I was done there was a warm loaf of bread sitting inside the truck. YEEHAW. I asked her if she would adopt me.
    This lady also makes 4 kinds of home made cookies that she gives me twice a year. I can almost mow there for free.
