Maybe he’ll be president once he’s fully mown
WHO said the youth of today have no work ethic. An 11-year-old boy has shown the rest of America that the satisfaction of a job well done has not been lost on the next generation beneath an avalanche of online games and iPads.
Frank Giacco, from the city of Falls Church in Virginia, wrote to President Donald Trump not only offering to mow the White House lawns, but to do it for free.
“I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for,” he wrote.
And when the White House took him up on his offer, Frank wasn’t getting swept up in the excitement of it all.
The youngster took the job so seriously he didn’t even have time to greet President Trump, determinedly pushing the mower straight past him. “Maybe he’ll be President,” Mr Trump said. After finishing his task, Frank said it was “probably the biggest day of my life so far”.
