The Grass Whip:
I was oot there yesterday, whipping the grass; my faithur wid have used a sickle; cannae mind us ever owning a scythe.
An elderly couple happened by and the woman says, "working hard" ? and ay says, "ay am that, the gardener quit". She looked a wee bit skeptical and says "you had a gardener" ? and ay says, "still do, only she has decided that it's the husband's turn". Her man says, "sharing, it's an arrangement we should consider" and awa they went, her jist chortling.
Oanyway, the grass whip, and this bit wull be quite useful. When ye buy one it will come with a full spool or the man in the store wull load it fer ye. If ye use it as the manufacturer intended, the spool wull last a long time.
When new, a wee dunt oan the grun wull advance the plastic thit does the cutting., Some idjits experiment, ken like, lets gie it a few dunts and see how much a foot of plastic cord wull mow doon. Or, let's try and wrap the cord aroond the handle of a shovel.
Eventually the childishnes stops. Of course by that time you are needing mair of the plastic twine. It comes in fifty foot lengths and ye are told that it is dead easy tae install: thon last bit comes from every lying bastirt that ye know.
I did buy a fifty foot roll and tried tae attach it as per instructions. At that time folk in this house wur talking tae me, maistly in a civil manner but even so ay wasnae aboot tae tell them that ay was utterly failing in my attempts tae mak the grass whip useful.
Waiting until they are gone oot, ay take the spool and grass whip, return tae Canadian Tire and meet Keith, the magic man. Keith wisnae the maist jovial of clerks but he did sometimes smile when I explained my problems. Am hame in nae time and I have paid attention tae what he did.
A year later am nae longer gardening, the job being commandeered by another. She quits this year and, widn't ye know it, the grass whip spool is bloody empty. Ay cannae mind what Keith said but the instuctions are oan the plastic cover that goes over the spool. Furst step. "push the plastic cord through the eyelet on the fan housing, make sure to align with notch". Noo if ye follow thais instructions ye cannae push mair than an inch of cord through the eyelet before it jambs against the wee wheel it is supposed tae wrap aroond.
So, what ye need tae dae is cut off ten feet of plastic cord, wrap it aroond the spool, feed three inches through the eyelet and force the bloody thing the gither.
Dinnae bother trying tae get mair cord by dunting it and when ye get it caught and unravelled, cut the cord and start again. Fifty feet should last until the lawn, nae bigger than four hundred square feet, has been whipped. Am no quite finished mine but am awa tae Canadian tire. Keith has retired but am gonnae be prayin that his replacement might be of some use.
Noo, the chances are that am gonnae be buyin a new grass whip, one that is ready for W***...now this is where I tell ye something useful.......either marry a handiwoman or get a 5.9% Canadian Tire credit card.

Where did you get that idea from Fey?

Maist o us take everything you say seriously. Couldny dae anything else could we? Like Celyn it's sometimes impossible to figure out if you're being serious serious or chust seriously bizarre.

Personally I think you're baith fucking loonies.
Very Happy
