    I didn't think you capable of an un-pure thought. [​IMG]

    Fuck no. Fuck that shit.
    +1000 Fuck him and fuck his lawn. BTW, I meant figuratively, if you want to actually fuck both of them, well... I guess that's your business.

    You would be considered a wimp if you actually mowed his lawn. The dad would lose any respect that he had for you. His daughter (your g/f) would see this from her dad and then she would lose respect for you. Before you know it, you will be washing his underwear.


    In all seriousness, if it was a girl I loved that I had been with for over a year and the father was ill with cancer, I would mow it

    I have never heard in any culture that a boyfriend in a long distance relationship goes to meet his girlfriend to mow the lawn (depends on what lawn are we talking here?).

    Jokes apart, if her father mentions it again to you then tell him that you will put an Ad on local Craigslist and get it done for him.

    He's trying to see how much of a man you are. Don't mow it.

    I've mowed the gf's fathers lawn a few times while they were away but they're family and have done more for me than I'll be able to repay ever.

    I never mowed the lawn.. Once I helped chop down a tree, but since everyone was doing useful stuff I would have felt like an ass not to.

    If they are upper middle class they should be paying someone to do the job.

    I spent a summer cutting lawns to make extra cash ... but my father never allowed me to cut our own lawn. I certainly didn't cut the lawn of my girlfriend's parents.

    I do help out on my own account, but they will never ask me to do anything.

    I just miss having a garden and some animals running around, which is why im happy to help them out. But again, they will never ask me to do anything.
