Today I broke just about every piece of yard equipment I own.
For a couple weeks now I have been unable to start my mower. (magnify the picture 1000x and you can read GTS-Guaranteed to Start written next to TORO) This morning I was tinkering with the carburetor (like I have any idea how it works or what might be wrong). As im loosening what appears to be an important bolt/valve/piece, it shears off completely. So I have taken a bad situation and made it worse. Sweet.
I figure at least I can weed-wack, then I will borrow my buddies mower. I go out to the shed to get the string trimmer. Im greeted there by a maggot infested rat and its awful stench. After fighting back vomit chunks and poking around some more, I find his half decomposed brother nestled into my jeep soft top. Apparently before they died, the two of them thought it would be a good idea to chew holes in it.
I clean out the shed and get to work with the string trimmer. About half way through the front yard, it inexplicably stops working...ok???
Well at least my hedge trimmer still works. Maybe I can at get something done after all...As I am trimming the overgrown hedges in my front yard, I accidentally sever the only extension cord I own. Oops...It gets better. When I unplug the the cord, somehow it tears male end of the trimmer's plug completely out...trashed.
Thankfully, my neighbor friend let me borrow his nearly new mower..i didnt feel so bad when the little flap that keeps the grass from flying everywhere broke off. Apparently it was already busted.
