Lawn Mowing
« on: July 08, 2011, 03:02:23 PM »
I just had a young lad cut our grass. (our mower is out of action) Here's a link to his ad. http://moncton.kijiji.ca/c-services-other-lawn-mowing-W0QQAdIdZ293887146

He worked really hard and it was tough going in some places (so I paid him double his rate)

He's a bit restricted travel wise but if you just wanted someone to do the work, maybe you could pick-up and drop off.

I remember mowing lawns back in the eighties. People used to compare people mowing lawns to kids having a paper route (nothing wrong with either). Back then a lot of people thought mowing lawns was for kids. I used to get laughed at when people saw my Trans Am with the lawnmower sticking out of the trunk. When I told a few people the money I was making, suddenly almost every Tom, Dick, and Harry seamed to start doing it. It is hard work, and honest work. I have the utmost respect for those who can stand the exertion and heat to do it all day long. I'm going to pass this link on to a few people.

Our shed collapsed under the weight of snow. It buckled the height adjustment thingy on one of the wheels. I couldn't cut the grass with it when the time came for its first cut.

It may work with shorter grass, I don't know. A lad in the neighbourhood called touting for business and it was more appealing than wearing myself out and getting bitten by bugs.

He disappeared and I found this alternative on Kijiji.

Why don't people do it for window cleaning? People back in England would often go around the area asking for customers for that. Does everyone do their own here?
