I Hate My Lawnmower

Not just dislike, not "tends to make me irritated" no, folks, I HATE it.

Yesterday it wasn't cutting so I had to tear it apart in the heat to clean it only to put it back together to discover it STILL didn't work.


So today I took the time to tear it apart AGAIN in the heat (after a 16 mile run, mind you) to replace the $35 belt and when I got it back together....

The batterty was dead.


Because it's a fucker.

So I charged it up just enough to get it going, drove it to a patch of grass and discovered it still didn't cut.


I told you. Fucker.

Just as I discovered this, it stalled and died.


You thought I was going to call it a fucker again. But this time, it ran out of gas.


So I filled it up only to discover the battery was dead, again (OK, still).

Mother fucker!!!!

So I had to push it to the garage where it can rot in Hell for a billion eternities.

    yeah, this was some of your BEST WORK. Ha. I especially like that you didn't spellcheck and that your Qbert (that is the name, right?)expletive came up as an email address.

    Thanks. My best work is done when I'm red hot. That definately qualified but geez, at what cost. If I become a professional writer, I'll have to be a raging maniac!!!

    BTW, I had to pass the lawnmower in the garage on the way out to work this morning. I growled at it.

    Glad my maniacal rantings entertained you. It took a half dozen beers to calm me down.

    And I think you mean "QWERTY" which is the name for a standard keyboard. It's the first 5 letters on the upper left ofthe keyboard.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go laugh myself into a hernia over "Qbert."

    Q bert. The videogame. He hopped around and if he fell off the thing then he said #*$@!

    Isn't that right?!

    OH! Might have been AFTER your time.

    OK, I stand corrected. I thought "QWERTY" was some blogging shorthand for masking cusswords and you mistakenly called it Qbert.

    Yes, I remember QBert, in fact Carrie is the world champion. Me? Well, let's just say there are a lot of explicatives when I play that have nothing to do with the screen.

    And is that an effiminate jab about my age?
