    If I knew what this thread was about, I would probably be totally on board with whatever it is you are saying.

    I am continually amazed at how lazy teenagers are in my area. You can hardly pay them to do things.

    I've had two back surgeries so riding the lawn tractor in parts of our sort of bumpy yard, isn't enjoyable. During a period of 2 yrs, hired 3 teenage guys from a work/study program at one of the local high schools.

    Basically let them set the date and time, had cold soft drinks/Gatorade etc for them, gave them appreciative remarks and after tipping them, I paid them over $20/hr. Guess what? They just upped and quit w/o giving me the courtesy of saying why.

    This and McDonald's pays $12/hr locally.

    Thought screw them, wife and I mow it ourselves. Don

    There are 6 boys on my street(and each one of them has a dog), the oldest two are 11, the youngest is 6 going on 15. Every time it snows and school is canceled these boys show up with shovels to at least get the walkways and porch areas cleaned up.(The guy at the end of the street plows everybodies' driveway, won't take cash but will take a beer or two). There's one kid who's in the middle, age wise, who really males an effort to negotiate a deal, which is tough because two of the group will just do it because you're a neighbor. As for lawn mowing, they all want money for soccer camp and gas money for their dirt bikes, I'm cool with that.

    That's great. But those boys are all too young to qualify for the feminist & millenial "think" I intended this thread about.

    Patriarchy Theory is to Feminists what the Dirty Bolshevik Jew was to Germany.

    A boogie man.

    My son works out of town and sometimes long hours, so I haul my mower 4 miles to his house and cut his grass. Takes me about an hour 45 round for everything.
    This week he comes cuts my neighbors 5 acres for $70 with her mower. My wife says something wrong with that picture. I think she's right.
