Shooting Lawn Mower Voids Warranty

One of the lawn mower repair methods we don't recommend here at renovateyourworld.com is taking out a shotgun and blasting it. Unfortunately, an apparently inebriated Keith Walendowski of Milwaukee, Wis., didn't heed these words of wisdom. The 57-year-old man became angry at his lawn mower, shot it and now faces a possible six years in prison for possessing a short-barreled shotgun and disorderly conduct while armed. Takeaways? Don't fix things while drunk. Don't use firearms to fix things.

I call "shotgun"

Seriously, this guy needed to know when to call in a pro to fix his mower.
Well the mower must have survived as the did not charge him with crafts-manslaughter. Maybe he was hunting and thought it was Deere season.

Lawn Mower wins

It seems that alcohol and anything does not mix.

Sometimes just asking a neighbor for help goes a long way. I have many friends with many talents that help me with the smallest of projects, fixing a lawn mower being one of them.
