Hopefully they live happily ever after…
“My husband did NOT want to buy Garden Mats. I purchased enough Garden Mats for half of the garden and issued a challenge to him to prove how much time I would save on my side. Needless to say, I WON! The side with Garden Mats were not only weed free, but produced many more delicious vegetables! Thank you!”
We loved this testimonial. This is just one challenge issued between a wife and her husband. We have witnessed many such challenges between spouses over the last thirteen years.
We find it fascinating how Garden Mats receive a divided opinion between spouses. I cannot tell you how many times a couple has arrived at the factory and test gardens, sometimes after having driven for hours, and it is clear (to all of us that work here) one of the two was less than enthusiastic. When this occurs, we always remain completely neutral and try to be supportive. You can see it in their body language and hear it their voices. One is perky, interested and excited when offered a garden tour. The other is slow, reserved and somewhat disinterested. One wants to buy more than they originally planned and the other mumbles under their breath.
Interestingly, the skepticism is pretty much divided between the sexes. This is not a scientific finding by any means. But having been pretty sharp at research methodology in Social Psychology back in my undergraduate days, I can still keep tabs on these things.
Anyway, the good news is, no matter which spouse issued the challenge, by the second season they are usually united again. This is right where we want them to be. After all, they have one thing in common; nobody wants to weed.
The other good news is, regardless of who started the challenge, those who were behind Garden Mats from the beginning are winning every time. And hopefully everyone is living happily ever after.
If you had a happy ending, please let us know.
