Is your man this stupid?

We were going out of town, so I asked the neighbor to feed the cats and water the houseplants. I came back, and the cats were fine but my houseplants were water-logged and near-dead. The neighbor was watering the plants THREE TIMES A DAY!

Is that stupid or what?

  • From way back in 1st grade when you grow grass in an eggshell people are taught the very barest basics about plant life. How could you POSSIBLY think a plant needed to be watered 3 times a day unless you'd managed to sleep through every science and biology class between Kindergarten and Senior year???

  • I have the exact opposite of a green thumb. I can kill ANY plant, no matter how hard I try to do otherwise. I feel for your neighbor, lol.

    Sorry about your plants, though.

  • Not unless you told him how often to water them. Not everyone knows about how often to do plants. 3 times a day seems reasonable to me, but I'm guessing it's not?

  • Did you specifically tell him to water the plants one time a day? Not everyone has a green thumb and knows how to properly care for plants. It's not that he's stupid it's just that he's ignorant in how to care for plants properly.
