I think it's hilarious that people act like the only ones hiring people to do yard work are these snooty, upper crust, rich people.

Theres a lot of people middle class, and even a lot of people in the hood who don't mind paying for the service once in awhile. At least the ones who care about keeping up their yard, and have a job that keeps them from having all the time in the world to do yard work.

I like how people feel like the real common man, because they raked up a few leaves.
Hmmm I smell a lame excuse.
I have acres to mow. I have a huge garden.
An in ground pool.
I cut my own grass, tend the garden.
I also work a 12.5 hour swing shift. I have no problem finding the time.
Lets try this answer instead: I hire illegals to do my chores because they do it cheap, I am too lazy to do them myself and I honestly don't care about the legal citizens I am hurting.
Now which one sounds a little more honest/accurate?

I commend you, sir. A real man's man! No oil change for you, no driving through a car wash, no picking up fast food or eating at a restaurant, just roll up those sleeves and git-R-Dun!
