i've noticed lately when mowing the lawn, the brakes haven't been working very well - which poses a problem as our yard (3+ acres) slopes at a 30 degree angle in some spots. sometimes when TRYING to stop, i'll whip the lawnmower steering wheel to the left or right so i'm going BACK up the hill just to keep from dropping off into no nanc land at the bottom!

today, pop asked me to come out and step on the brakes as he was checking them, so i do and i say, "the brakes aren't working very well lately."

pop says, "the brakes aren't working at all - now's no time to start being polite!"

...oh boo...
