One of our neighbors has a landscaping business. My husband enlisted him to fix our lawn mower. In exchange, the dude wanted the use of our rototiller. Cool trade. No problem.
He also offered to buzz the weeds in our large flower beds, as they were taking over. Sure. No problem.
Except that HE CUT OFF MY FLOWERS TOO.
EVENING PRIMROSE IN FULL BLOOM? CUT TO THE BONE.
NEW SALVIA? SHREDDED.
BRAND NEW COLUMBINE WITH A BLOOM ON IT??? Gone!
WHY THE FUCK DO I BOTHER????
