Our last episode left the Suburban HOT housewife telling the lawn guy to blow it out his hole…well kinda anyway…
Who woulda thunk that there was going to be a sequel? Well…apparently our landscaper has a bit of a something or another for this Suburban Momma.
Arriving home from work, I jumped out of my car and headed towards the door. I wanted to grab a Coke Zero from the fridge before zipping off again to collect the muchkin from preschool.
The landscaper was parked at the other end of the circular driveway…and was mowing the lawn.
When he saw me, he shut off the mower and yelled out…
“Do you have a check for me?”
“Sure…if you want a super ball for a check. But…I promise to pay you next week.” Then, being a smart ass…”Do you have any money for me…I saw some cute boots I wanted.”
He laughed. “No one is paying me this week.”
“Sucks to be you.” I said.
“Well…we can work out OUR bill. I’ll take it in trade.”
He wants a service for a service, right? I mean…I AM assuming. And you know what they say about people who assume things!!
So, I said…
“Sure. How about…I’ll make you one of my crocheted purses or perhaps…a neckwarmer? And then we’ll call it even.”
“NOT what I meant.” he laughed, and turned away, ready to go back to his business of fall clean-up.
Well…seeing as that is the only type of service that I am willing to offer…I guess he’s going to have to wait on payment.
I told my husband. About this event. And the previous one. He laughed and said that the lawn guy is just joking around with me.
But I’m guessing if I said yes to any of these little propositions…he would, MOST DEFINITELY, prove that he is not joking.
Not about to find out though.
Besides…he isn’t very good with the bushes!
