…so when I give you a lawnmower that works on all the grasses of the world, please don’t decide to take the mower home, pull out the blades and a few key nuts and bolts, attach them to the top of the machine (or not at all) and then ask me why your grass isn’t any shorter.
Trust me, I’m good at cutting grass.
This little anecdote is a veiled metaphor for an issue I’m having with a ‘neighbour’… one who will be knee deep in weeds if said neighbour doesn’t start mowing the grass with the lawnmower and instruction manual I provided. * sigh *
It is, at times, painful to be helpful.
