Welcome to the crew

Worthless degree. Priceless laughs. 

“The Lawn-Cutting Crew” is a humorous fiction blog.

Meet Peter Goodwinter, a recent college graduate with a journalism degree. Unable to find a job in his chosen field, he accepts a laborer position on a lawn-care crew, where his book smarts are put to use pushing lawnmowers and pulling weeds. 

Stuck in a dead-end job with a deadbeat boss, Peter’s life has become a minimum-wage purgatory. Overeducated and underemployed, all he can do is keep a shovel in his hand and a smile on his face — all while daydreaming of a job that provides air conditioning.  

The Lawn-Cutting Crew is a “comic strip without drawings” featuring self-contained chapters and lighthearted laughs. With a penchant for pointing out the absurdity in everyday life, it’s a blog that will resonate with anyone who’s ever felt trapped by circumstances and learned to persevere through humor.
