Does anyone else mow their lawn drunk?

Asked by Blondesjon (32066 points ) September 13th, 2013

I unabashedly do. I call the beer ‘mowing juice’ and also include an iPod and marijuana in the mix. I start four drinks in and have found myself quite inebriated by the time I’m done. In this way, I fool myself in to ‘enjoying’ the task.

For the record, I push mow close to five acres and it generally takes four hours.

Nope but I heard that’s how the Canadian toe kiss came about.

That’s a shit load of grass, big lawn too.
I haven’t, but I did once shave all my pubes off when I was pissed, now that focuses your mind.

I hope Jonsblond is on standby in case you need to go to the ER! lol

Five acres? I’d invite the neighbors and offer a keg of beer if they’d help out.

Nope, but worked with a guy that did, they called “Three-toed Jack” after an accident on a steep slope.

Lawn mowers scare the shit out of me, so I’ve never used one at all and definitely wouldn’t do it drunk. Oddly, though, I will work with tools when I’m toasty. Weird.

Lawn mowers never have scared me. I’m most concerned with chain saws. And I’ve been on all kinds of farm equipment. Never drunk, that might make a difference.

Never used a lawn mower, but listening to music drunk is ace.

Hahaha….well no. I HAD a gardener for years that did the mowing and weed eating, til my finances bit the dust. However…I LOVE getting high and pruning. Oh shapely cool trees and bushes. My favorite thing in the WORLD is to be high out in my yard/garden/ collecting seeds, pruning, watering. I wish someone would pay me $30 an hour to water their yards. lol

Perhaps when you sober up you’ll count the cash spent on alcohol and stuff could be applied to a nice rider. Five acres with a push mower? You must be wasted dude.

Coloma's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Perhaps, but being out, puttering in ones yard/property is therapy for many. It is for me. :-)

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Wasted, sounds like it, but probably in fairly good shape if it’s a push mower. That’s exercise.

True fact: you can get a DUI on a riding mower.

My hubs mows the lawn. He does the same as you, Jon.

ETpro's avatar

I don’t actually know of I mow my lawn drunk or not. I’ve never checked to see if my lawn is drunk or sober before mowing it. How do you check. Lawn breathalyzer?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Drunk, no. I wouldn’t feel like doing it. I do however do tons of gardening/yard work while high.

Coloma's avatar

@uberbatman Right. Alcohol is a de-motivator, weed is a motivator. The way it works with my brain chemistry anyway. I get so much done when I am high.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Coloma Likewise, but there is a limit to that as well. “ok…gonna smoke this bowl here and then clean my room and such…..” “hmmm think I may have smoked a bit more than intended” (three hours later) “ya know… I should probably stop watching cat videos and clean my room….”

I have no lawn, nor a lawnmower…but I do have a chainsaw and some beer!

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

I’ve trimmed Jenn’s, umm, grass when I’ve been a bit tipsy.

Dutchess_III's avatar

At our mower shop a customer gave us a big picture of some local guy going through the liquor store drive through on his riding mower. :)

Step away from the chainsaw, @Symbeline!

hearkat's avatar

For the record, if you are turning the iPod up loud enough to hear over the lawnmower you are doing irreparable harm to your hearing.

Coloma's avatar

@uberbatman Haha…works the opposite for me, with my already high energy, I get SO focused on tasks. I will stay busy for hours and hours, it is especially great for motivating me to tackle things I procrastinate on like cleaning the garage. lol
I get high, and turn into a white tornado. Whistle while you work!

El_Cadejo's avatar

@hearkat That’s why you just need a good pair of noise canceling headphones so you don’t have to actually have it that loud :)

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Coloma I do dishes by hand a lot, much better not sober lol

hearkat's avatar

@uberbatman – Sadly, not enough people understand that, nor will many invest in a good pair of headphones.

The last time I was drunk was in 1987. So, no.

Dutchess_III's avatar

By the looks of it, it was the last time you mowed your lawn, too @mattbrowne. :}~
