Gardener is too polite to disturb pain in the grass sunbather

Some sunbathing sessions are simply too glorious to disturb.

That was the case in sunny Alexandra Gardens in Clevedon, Somerset, when a gardener came head-to-head with a man enjoying the sun.

Rather than ask the topless man to move, he just manoeuvred his drive-on-mower all the way around him.

The sunbather eventually got up, blissfully unaware of his inconvenience, and the oval shaped patch of uncut grass surrounding him.

Phil Curme was on a stroll to the seafront when he wandered through the park and spotted the hilarity unfold.

He said: ‘It says so much about human conditioning – the lack of communication between the pair.

These funny pictures show a council gardener who refused to disturb a sunbather - so mowed mowing around him. The worker was busy cutting the grass on his drive-on mower at a park on Friday. But rather than ask the man, who was lying flat on the grass in just a pair of shorts, to move he simply just manoeuvred his drive on mower around him. When the gardener finished and the man eventually got up and left, he left behind an oval shaped patch of uncut grass.

‘I was walking down to the seafront and I walked through the park, I saw the mower approaching the guy.

‘I was intrigued as to what would happen, so I paused and watched.

‘I watched him go round two or three times. The gardener got closer and closer.

‘I thought the sunbather was going to crack at some point, but he just lay there.

‘Maybe it was a “no mowing” protest. The patch of grass is still there now, the gardener just left it.’
