Gallons of Water a Day Keeps the Texas Sun Away
Who knew the human body could drink so much water? As I sat in the shade in my own pool of sweat, I thought to myself that this was not the summer of roses and rainbows that Nolan so falsely led me to believe.
Mowing lawns is a simple task, but spanned out 12 hours a day under the hot Texas sun, it becomes quite grueling. It’s tough. According to my Fitbit, I walk around 40,000 steps a day. To put that in perspective, that’s 20 miles of me walking up and down your lawn. For all of those people who spent quarantine on the couch, like myself, and have gained 20 lbs in the past month. I’ve got a solution for you! Just wait outside for your friendly lawn mowers to come by and we’ll be happy to hand you the mower. You can take care of that weight and get the lawn done all at the same time, we’ll be more than happy to oblige.
Among the heat exhaustion and great farmer tan, this job does really does have its benefits. Now, whenever I look at a lawn, I instinctively know exactly how it should be mowed most efficiently and aesthetically pleasing. (I consistently draw out lawn mower lines in my head for lawns that I will never mow in my life). Another great benefit, would be this great pay check I get at the end of every two weeks. Y’all keep working hard and tell your friends about us, college ain’t cheap. Finally, I slightly hit a tree with the company truck the other day, so I’m in the doghouse right now writing this blog.
I hope y’all know I’m just joking around, I love this job, Top Choice is a great company to work for. These long hot summer days have taught me a lot about just work itself. To have pride in what you do, and let the product of your work resemble more than just yourself. This is something that every employee at Top Choice not only learns, but also exemplifies. I’m looking forward to mowing all of y’all’s lawns this summer, and I won’t turn down any snacks or drinks you want to leave out.
