That leaves me with two questions. Number one is where he got the rock? The second is how did he move said rock to her lawn?

As a construction company owner, I think he has LOT'S of big rocks, and the tools to get them there.

That, if a bit much, was hilarious!

If it had happened to me, I'd be laughing. Seriously, I would.  I'd be insulted too, but really, that's too well done not to laugh at it too.

I wish I had a lot of big rocks to do things like that with. ^.^;;

If it was on my lawn, and not in my driveway, I wouldn't even be terribly insulted (of course, I wouldn't have been asking for a 'big rock' all the time, either).  When I was a wee Oni, we would occasionally pass by a house on a hill with a large rock in front of it, and it was a game to see who could rattle off 'I wish I had that big rock in my back yard!' the fastest (sort of like kids yelling 'Jinx, you owe me a Coke').

I shared the article with my sisters, and they all still remembered.

That took some stones.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

This is fantastic.  Seriously.  I would have actually found it funny if it were me receiving the rock.  After showing the news article to my husband, he proceeded to tell 'rock' jokes with me.

I get the impression he took her for 'granite'.

But the question is, do you think he treated her like schist?

Only when she couldn't make the bedrock.

Personally, I'd just laugh about it and start over with a clean slate.

Well you don't want the guy getting any boulder.

I think it's boulder-dash if you don't enjoy a little wordplay.  I do think we have plateaued with it though.

I agree, you can never slag somebody for wordplay. Wordplay is the cornerstone of our society these days.

You might say it's the bedrock upon which our culture is founded.
