Imbeciles…. Was the first thought that came to my mind once I realized what was causing the low roaring sounds that caught my attention. I was visiting one of the offices for another endless bureaucratic procedure and as I got out of the car I noticed a roaring sound around the corner. Sounded like someone flying a bunch of model planes or some sort of RC vehicle as the speed kept cycling between low and high.
So I step around the building to check it out and there they are, dozens and dozens of men cutting grass with weed eaters. Nope, not trimming the places where a mower won’t fit, they were actually trimming the grass on an area that was probably forty to fifty football fields in size.
Yeah, I know, jobs, it creates jobs. Still you have to wonder that even at less than a buck an hour for the labor the idea of using dozens of two cycle weed eaters instead of one riding mower or a tractor drawn mowing machine has got to eat up a bunch of fuel and trimmer line.Published in
