My Wife always wanted a ride-on lawn mower. She works all day and was always tired when she came home from work and thought that a ride-on lawn mower would help her get the yard work done quicker so she would have more time for the chores inside the house.
SO, being the handy sort of guy that I am, I made her a riding lawn mower. I guess I thought she would squeal with delight or something and give me a big hug.
I even put a light on it so she could work at night. See photo below. To this day I have never been able to understand why some women are so hard to please .
P.S. I can see out of my left eye pretty good now and should be able to leave the hospital sometime next week.

Distinguished filmmaker, Martin Scorsese, directs the true story of New York stockbroker, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). Having started a morally conventional career in the late 80s, Belfort quickly rose from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties, as founder of the brokerage firm, Stratton Oakmont, warranted Belfort the title - The Wolf of Wall Street. Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was not to be taken into account. For Jordan and his aspiring staff of likeness, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
