Has anyone else noticed the strange knock on effect of doing gardening, more specifically, cutting your grass? I may have talked about this before… But I can’t find it in my history.. So I am going to talk about it anyway. I have no problems repeating myself. B-)
Now I’m not saying that I am a trend setter or anything. But I have noticed that when I cut my grass the rest of the neighbourhood tends to do the same. Maybe I’m simply picking good days and it’s all a matter of strange coincidence. But yesterday, after I cut my grass and was writing up my blog post, I looked up out of the window to see that my neighbour over the way was out tidying his garden. Also, our neighbour behind us was cutting the grass and I could hear at least 2 other mowers going in the area. You can’t tell me that was all coincidence?
Do people need triggers to do things? Do people wait till others start before they know that they can too?
I understand in looking for information on things so we can learn from the mistakes and successes of others. But what if I had cut my grass too early, cut it too short, or… ?? You get the drill. This is one of those times where you mother would ask you ‘If he had put his hand in a fire, would you do it too?’. B-)
I think I am rambling now. But it does seem strange. Anyone else noticed this phenomenon?
