Not borrowed. This idiot leaves them outside in weather leaning against the house because he's too lazy to walk back and forth to/from the tool shed. ?So they were not some borrowed tool? If I borrow a tool that is the one I will breck the handle or the tool. I have bad luck when I borrow.
This is equally positive and frustrating.
Have had issues the last 3 summers starting my mower with the pull start. I have taken it apart easily 20 times. Pull rope broke, spring not catching, not recoiling, coil came undone, etc etc etc. It was a sense of frustration that I was looking into getting a new one.
FInally.....the coil actual snapped so I was forced to replace the pull system with the spring, wheel, cord, casing, etc. Cost me like 20 bucks. No big deal (reminds me, I need to cancel my Prime membership as I joined to get free two day shipping). Took maybe 20 minutes to replace today and now........
It starts on teh first pull for the first time in like 5 years. So freeing, and frustrating, that why didnt I do that in the first place!!!
Related topic...over the years I wondered if all the work I put on my yard was worth it. Raking all the thrash twice a year, fertilizing spring, summer and fall, pulling of any and all weeds. This spring was gone for 6 weeks and didnt have the chance to do what I normally do this spring and well.......i now know all the work was worth it and will start it back up.
The boy was telling me this summer, 'you're yard is falling behind the MAC standard' and I concurred and just responded I was trying to fit in more with the locals.....but in reality it bugs the hell outta me how it looks.
My mind went into the gutter.There are people that can just pour liquid down their throat and not do the swallow thing. I had a cousin that could do that when she was young. she left almost al full glass of milk and her mother complained about not drinking it and my cousin picked up the glass and poured the milk down never taking a swallow.
