- Turn your rake (me) over so that the tines face down. You're never going to rake any leaves with poor form and upturned tines.
- Pull your rake toward you. Pushing me around just the pushes leaves around on the ground. We'll never create a pile big enough for Miss C. to jump in if you insist on pushing instead of pulling.
- Remember to direct your raking at the leaves. We're going to be here all day if you don't stop pushing me all over the driveway and sidewalk. The leaves are on the grass, not the concrete.
You didn't hear a word I just said, did you?
