OH has been doing some serious pruning in the garden over the last two days and today tried to get busy with the chainsaw to cut some bushes down at the base.

I saw her messing with it and trying to get it started, without success.

Being ever helpful, I asked her if there was enough petrol in it.

OH shook the thing and held it close to her ear.

Quizzical expression on her face she shook it again.

I then asked if she had used enough choke, to which she replied that this particular model didn't have a choke.

I told her that I wasn't surprised as the chainsaw was electric.

The choke was on me :-D :-D :-D
