The cleverness of this 50-year-old anecdote from June 1968 has well and truly stood the test of time.
It was a Friday afternoon, and one of our friends gave little thought to having his power mower borrowed by a neighbour, until he happened to mention it to another neighbour. Then he discovered that this neighbour’s mower had also been borrowed. Later, he was even more surprised to learn that three more mowers had been loaned to the same man.
When the hoarder was pressed for an explanation, he assured the men that all mowers would be returned bright and early Monday morning. “This is one weekend,” he added with a grin, “that I intend to sleep late – in peace.”
