For years, I've been struggling to keep the string in my "weedwacker" whenever I use it. I thought I was the only man in the world who couldn't operate one easily. Now, after a day of football at my neighbors, I found out a couple of my buddies have the same issue, with only one guy there professing to being an expert with his string trimmer. He even offered to stop by and string mine properly. I told him I'd leave it on the porch.
