I would earn them for my work! I can do everything on a vegetable farm. I have years of experience.

Well, alright, no is no. It was cruel to tell me about your cats in the first place though.
You city slickers wouldn't survive a week in the country.

Dude, you'd be good if you survived a day in what I call the countryside. You wouldn't even know how to get in there in the first place... Just because you rusticated, it doesn't make you a country person. Can you even operate a tractor? Not to mention you'd be useless for work, French puppy.

PS, I've stop threatening Collector that I will move in, because he started to develop PTSD.

Funny you should mention it: today I picked up a new driver's license and it says that I may drive a car and a tractor. To be honest, I prefer HUSQ.

City folk are so snobbish just because they go to Italian opera with surtitles and drink prosecco.

The difference between a true country person like I and a fake like you is that I actually operated a tractor already at the age of 12 (afair).

"City folk are so snobbish just because they go to Italian opera with surtitles and drink prosecco."

Everybody loves Italian opera. Snobs are actually the guys who pretend that they don't like it. Moreover, you don't need sophisticated tastes to love opera - as with all things love, you need a heart.

I drank the best Prosecco I could find in Tesco Express at 8 pm on the NY's Eve - worked until 6 pm, forgot it was THE day (got confused, because eveybody had been wishing me a happy NY since the beginning of December!), all "better" shops closed at 7.

You are small fry. We had this a few years ago. The real McCoy.

Sorry to butt in if this is a private rant but if you'd like to prove your rural credentials I've about 20 metres of post and rail to replace this weekend. I have a 20 kg post hammer and the ground is heavy clay.
Any takers?

I have a man who does my fencing.

But I have operated a digger on my land. Only briefly though because it frightened me.

Last summer one of the local deliberately tried to run me down with a digger. I must have said something to annoy him.

Focus on your local network (e.g. Mr. Haney). Most Wilmotters have not progressed beyond QWERTY keyboards.

Do you really have to wonder why people try to run you over with diggers?

To be honest, no. Maybe I should do something about my inter-personal skills?
