    Man Shoots Lawn Mower

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080725/..._mower_madness

    MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start. Keith Walendowski, 56, was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.

    According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."

    A woman who lives at Walendowski's house reported the incident. She said he was intoxicated.

    Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

    A call to Walendowski's home went unanswered Friday morning.

    Right their is what is wrong with people today. Stereotyping and expecting a certain look means people look a certain way. It really is a shame thats how people choose to judge people by how they look.

    There is no perfect stereotype. Classifying someone by their look no matter how ridiculous is ludacris.

    I have to admit, I have felt this way before when I have had trouble getting my mower to start.

    I spent almost 3 hours today repairing my Craftsman riding mower. Piece of crap. My kids left the key on so it drained (ruined) the battery, and one of the rear tires went flat.

    So I went and got a battery and had to buy a new tire. But after I corrected those problems the mower still no go. So I thought.... "What the crap is wrong with this thing now!!!" Only I didn't use the word "crap".

    Was it the drive belt, maybe the transmission? It turns out that when they changed the tire the metal "key" that fits in the trans axle groove on the drive tire had fallen out and they didn't realize it.

    So once I got that replaced I then had the privilege of getting the yard mowed.
