Desperate housewives - well not technically cos I'm single

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by I Adore Vic, Oct 2, 2007.

  1. I usually have an old guy come out and do my lawns but he didn't show up for a couple of mths so I decided to ring and get someone else out here.

    So this lawnmower guys turns up one day while I'm at uni and does a shit job mowing the lawn. He left the cut grass there and he cut it unevenly - it looked like he'd gone over it with the whipper snipper and that's it. I went into town wtih the intention of giving him a piece of my mind. Took one look at him, handed over the $$ and walked out of there with the arrangement he'd come around in a few wks to do it again. lol.

    So he just turned up then...and mowed the front lawn and it looks terrible. There's grass everywhere and it's uneven and looking pretty rank. But I paid him the $$ and he's coming back in 3 wks. lol. Bring on summer. haha.

  2. LOL so what's he look like???
  3. You are a crack-up, lady :rofl:.....
  4. What does he look like? Hmm..Good enough to pay a ridiculous amount of $$ for a crap job. :LOL:
  5. are you crazy?

    my guy normally does a good job, but after a year he got complacent and left a couple o mo hawks in the lawn.

    the very next time i saw him i told him there were mo hawks and i wasnt happy about it. he said sorry and it never ever happened again.

    the same things happen with my domestic helpers, after a while they get complacent and dont do a good enough job.

    nib it in the bud.

    cancel him, and get someone else.

    the best thing to do is find out who does your neighbours lawn and get him to do yours on the same day.

    cheers :cool:
