Sometimes you get SO SICK of seeing that unmade bed through the window, or that shaggy lawn, that you just gotta take the law into your own hands! :twisted:

i made the mistake of leaving my garden shed unlocked, but instead of taking the lawnmower [a 1970s Murray] they instead stole a 10 gallon bucket.

He probably mowed the lawn first as a way of making it easier to steal the mower, like looking like he's doing a good deed then run off with the mower.


That is a good way to make it look like it is his mower.

I tried the same thing with a swimming pool once. But I couldn't work out the physics.

Reminds me I once borrowed my cybersister's electric lawnmower in 1997 and managed to blow the thing up in a puff of smoke.
She threatened to take me to court :lol:

It would be embarrassing to get arrested for stealing a mower that was broken.
He had to test it out first, a trial run before taking.
I’m sure he will get to mow plenty of lawns in the future at the prison.

For myself I get paranoid what the neighbors will think if my lawn get's overgrown while their's is nice and manicured. Purchasing a lawnmower is a hassle if you don't have a trailer. Easier to borrow/steal thy neighbors.

I ordered an electric one a few years ago and it still runs quite well although I hardly maintain it. But I'm doing my bit to stave off global warming by not using a petrol/gas 2-stroke engine mower.
