Help wanted

The Lawn-Cutting Crew is a humor fiction blog. It's sort of like a comic strip, but without the drawings. It offers self-contained chapters and lots of laughs.

 We were all in the maintenance truck, barreling down the highway to our next job. As usual, Crew Leader Carl was driving.

“Oh, wow!” he exclaimed, as we flew past a building. “I haven’t seen one of those for a long time.”

“What?” I asked.

“That fencing company had a Help Wanted sign on their gate,” Carl said. “It’s been years since I’ve seen one of those.”

I frowned. “What kind of a sign?”

“A Help Wanted sign,” Carl said. 

He looked at me in the rearview mirror. I shrugged.

“You have no idea what I’m talking about?” he asked, his eyebrows raised.

“What’s a Help Wanted sign?” I asked.

“They’re … oh, I see.” Carl nodded. “You entered the workforce after the 2008 financial crisis, didn’t you?”

I nodded. “Yeah.”

“No wonder,” he said. “OK, then. You’re not going to have any idea what I’m talking about.”

I’m a humorist and fiction writer, as well as the author of two books. One is a collection of humor, and one is a collection of short stories. Both books are available on Amazon. I always wanted to write a comic strip, but I can’t draw. Not even a stick-person. So that’s why “The Lawn-Cutting Crew” is a comic strip without drawings. I hope you enjoy!
