Sun and men and tools

British men are a strange breed. As soon as the sun comes out, even for a moment, they simply have to go outside and use power tools. If they’re not blowing leaves into the street with a leaf blower, they’re cutting or grinding something with some noisy tool or other. Failing that, they will find something to wash with their pressure washer.

This is not a new phenomenon. For many years, lawnmowers were considered a quintessential component of a British summer soundscape. They are still there; you just can’t hear them over the cutting discs and leaf blowers.

Thanks to British men, you can’t enjoy peace and quiet on a sunny day in Britain.

British men are rubbish.
