And it never works! He attempts to start it, and there is a huge cloud of smoke. It reminds me of the BP oil disaster. If I'm outside and he tries to use it, I go inside. All summer, I keep the windows closed and use the air conditioner, just in case. I would do that anyway for the smog of Toronto, but I keep that one side extra tight.
So, once it starts, it just stinks with less smoke. It would be great if I just went in for the time he takes to mow the lawn, but it always conks out! Right now it's just sitting there in the middle of his lawn, torturing me, until he decides to tackle it again. I think it's too stinky for his shed. He complains about it never working right, and I've tried every sort of hint, including the subtle one "You should buy a new lawn mower!".
Sure, I have a bbq, and I love salmon on a plank, which really smokes up, so I'm no saint (but we have a hybrid!). Still, for 20 years, I have wished every sort of death upon that horrible thing. :)
