Postal Workers In Finland Offer Lawn Mowing Service


Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. Spare a moment to consider the plight of postal workers in Finland. With so many people emailing and texting, mail carriers there found themselves with time on their hands. So they're offering a new service mowing lawns. You provide the lawn mower. They show up and mow. Monthly service starts at 75 bucks, goes up if you have a big yard. That way when you open your mailbox, you have at least one bill waiting. It's MORNING EDITION.
