He said he would use my mower and my gas.
“Who’s going to pay for the gas?” I asked. I already had gas, he explained, so no one had to buy any gas.
“Who’s going to pay for the use of my mower?” I asked. It was my mower to begin with, he told me, so there was no need to pay for its use. All I had to do was let him use my mower, let him fill it with gas I’d already purchased, pay for his time and my lawn would be mowed.
I laughed and called him an entrepreneur.
My wife said that he would be a entrepreneur if he used our mower and gas to mow my neighbor’s lawn and still got me to pay for his time. At best he was an consultant.
Gotta love it.
