Backlash, My grandparents, who were my guardians, owned half a city block, 1/4 that we kept mowed and maintained. I spent a lot of time pushing a lawn mower around in the summer, and not once did anyone ever show me about the oil, how to check it, fill it or where the oil was. Those kinds of things were never shown to me, probably because I was a girl. There were a lot of things they wanted me to do, but had no patience to teach me how. It was always, "Go and ..." If I asked questions, I got yelled at. There was so much just trying to figure it out. Starting and pushing the mower, I could do mostly. Also, filling it up with gasoline.
