My lawn mower broke 2 weeks ago because I ran over something in the yard. Rather then going out and buying another $200+ Gas powered mower at Sears, I went to ebay. For $58 (which includes shipping) I got a new push mower. It's the kind that doesn't have an engine. It arrived yesterday.
So, in my wifes words, "you're going to stop traffic on the street with people wondering why your using that thing". I said, "Good, I hope I do". She didnt' get my point.
I told her that I'll get my money back in one summer because I won't have to buy gas or oil for it.
