The Question Club
We have been on the search for someone to come build some flower beds, mow, and trim our yard. My coworker heard me talk about it one day and said his mom is great with all that! So, we met with her and she gave us a good quote. Easy enough, right?|
Well, apparently someone came up to her while mowing the front yard, tapped her on the shoulder and said, "You don't live here. Why are you mowing the yard?" M* replied with "My game plan is to randomly mow people's yards & if they don't come outside, rob them." The woman promptly left. Haha! Loved it! Neither one of us even knew who she talked to since we don't really socialize with the neighbors.
We had to leave for about 30 minutes & saw that a neighbor had given her a cup of ice water. To be fair, I told my husband to leave the door unlocked so she can get a drink. He did just that but he didn't tell her. Heh.
So, we have had men do yardwork and never experienced this before. She's a spitfire and fully capable of this kind of work.
TL;DR Is it that weird or odd for a 42 year old woman to do yardwork as a job?
