Man: Is the grassy area outside part of the County or the City?
Me: That's City property.
Man: Oh, I thought it was County. See, yesterday my 80 year old mother fell on the tree root in the grass. The sidewalk out there is fine, but when you go off the beaten path it's all uneven. She doesn't want me to file a complaint or anything, but I just wanted to let you know.
Why take your 80 year old mother through the grass if he acknowledges that the sidewalk is just fine?
