Neighbour takes eight hours to cut his lawn

My nutty neighbour has been cutting his lawn since 10:30 this morning...its 5:45 now. Before you think he lives on acreage, its a 60x220 lot. He just keeps going up and down the same area. At least I should be thankful its not 8:30 at night, when he usually does it. Just thought I'd vent.

Beats my neighbor who only cuts his lawn every 2 months...

It's bad enough that lawn care companies can't actually use real herbicides and such to kill weeds anymore... But when you spend half your day cutting the grass and cutting out the weeds that do pop up then someone next door has a yard that looks like a jungle Y_Y..........

Is he older than 60?

When you pass 60 you may start to forget which part of the lawn you already mowed, especially if it's all green.

I am certain that this is a repost...or at the very least a repeat of prior a thread
"When the common good of a society is regarded as something apart from and superior to the individual good of its members, it means that the good of some men takes precedence over the good of others, with those others consigned to the status of sacrificial animals." -- Ayn Rand

Every facet, every deposit of your mind is to be programmed by you; and unless you assume your rightful responsibility and begin to program your own mind, the world will program it for you.

The lawnmower's innocent. I doubt it's the only gas mower in the neighbourhood.

You just don't like a neighbour who does it at odd hours and takes eight hours to finish the job. :twisted:

Within that context, I can't blame you.

...just steal the mower and give him a bunch of goats.

I think the lawnmower is possessing him and won't let him free. He's getting up their in years, so time might be catching up with him.

So do him a favour and salt the earth so nothing grows. Look, no more grass to mow, pa! :twisted:

His lawn is mostly dirt now. I could have cut it with a pair of scissors in that time.

Maybe you should go check if he's caught in a maniacal, sadistic plot where the lawnmower will explode if he stops mowing :-0

GO SAVE THAT POOR MAN! He's mowing "SOS" on his lawn but nobody seems to care! People nowadays are so unsympathetic towards their neighbours that it's disheartening :(
