- I’ve been locked out of the house by my toddler (with the baby asleep inside in the crib and the toddler outside with me).
- The mower has had bits of dandelions added to the gasoline tank and it never was the same after that.
- I’ve broken the handle off the pull-start cord.
- I’ve messed up the trimmer so that even my husband wasn’t sure what I did to make it “not start” again. (He rebuilt something and it works again.)
I was about one-third of the way into the lawn when I shut off the mower to get some water in me. When I went back to start the mower, the cord for the pull-start came off the motor. Oops!
So, I guess I’ll wait for my husband to come home because if I took it apart to re-attach the cord, I’d likely break (or lose) something else.
