Once, when I was a youngster, about 16 or so, I bragged to a neighbor-man that I could fix his chainsaw. I came to this conclusion after I couldn’t get it to start while bucking up some small logs to be used for that coming winters’ fire.
I mean, it’s a small engine, so how hard could it be?
He took me up on my offer and I promptly took the thing home and started ripping into it. But, no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the damned thing to start and stay running, so I had to put it back to together, return it to him, admitting that I really had no idea what I was doing.
The neighbor-man laughed, pulled out a small can of gasoline and filled it up.
