Dallas native Ken Benson expressed frustration and dismay after his 14-year-old son “practically ruined” the backyard with a bad mow.
“I really thought I raised him better than this,” said Benson, motioning to the uneven lines. “Is it that hard to properly mow straight lines? I went over this with him multiple times before agreeing to pay him to mow the yard. I’m not paying for this!”
Benson reportedly had to spend all Saturday “fixing” his son Tyler’s mess. That included re-mowing the yard on a shorter setting.
“Then I had to do the edging, which he totally didn’t bother with,” said Benson. “He also didn’t even lay down any fertilizer. Is the grass just supposed to feed itself?!”
Tyler wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about.
“So I still get the $15, right?” he asked. “I mean the grass was long and now it’s short. Done. What else did he expect?”
