A local Aussie bloke made headlines here recently when he told our Prime Minister to get off his grass…because he’d just re-seeded his lawn. The Prime Minister immediately moved (as did the media).
Scott Morrison had been standing on the footpath making a media announcement about a Home Builder stimulus package. The location carefully chosen by ScoMo as the area is about to hold a by-election and it is a new township that has only begun development in the last few years, so lots of new builds happening (it’s not far from where I live).
The home owner came out, bare-footed, tracky-dacked (standard Aussie dress), and politely directed everyone to shift, asking “Can everyone get off the grass, please?” After everyone had moved the home owner gave them the thumbs up.
Of course, with a pun too hard to pass up, social media dubbed him: The Law(n) Enforcer.
Apart from finding this pretty funny and totally Australian, I have to say the current world events have reinforced how fortunate I feel being Aussie. I can’t imagine this happening in other parts of the world.
Do you have a lawn? Are you as protective of your lawn as this homeowner?
