My grandfather is a wonderful man. I have been mowing his grass for several weeks now, and initially he started paying me. I didn't want money because I wanted to do it out of the goodness of my heart. My problem has always been that I'm not good at saying no. I'll try to refuse money, but I usually end up taking it because I'm afraid of upsetting people.
Finally I found a way to refuse it, and my step-mom basically backed me up on that. I was finally out of a sticky situation! So he told me he'd find another way.
Monday I went to mow for him again. When I got there, he told me he had something for me. I looked and it was a brand new keyboard with a keyboard stand included (shown in this video)! I was pretty excited about it. I didn't attempt to refuse because I think in that scenario I really would have hurt his feelings. He went out his way to get that for me, so I decided to take it. That was his way of getting back at me for refusing money!
I really wish I was better at refusing things, but I have to say that this really shows what kind of person my grandfather is. He'd do absolutely anything for me. He's truly a great man, and I hope to live up to his ways as I get older.
