'Get off the grass': is it the most Aussie request ever?

He was a sort of Australian Every Man - well, most certainly your dad.

He'd reseeded his front lawn and wasn't about to have it trampled. And it didn't actually matter much if it was a Prime Ministerial press conference either.

The PM popped from the nation's capital to the nearby growth suburb of Googong in Queanbeyan to reveal details of the $25,000 cash grants for residential construction.

The assembled press pack took up their requisite positions but failed to look down.

Get of the grass: And they did. The accommodating PM Scott Morrison with the lawn-proud man in Queanbeyan.

The PM was barely a sentence into his spiel when a bearded man interrupted: "Can everyone get off the grass please? Come on.

"Guys, I've just reseeded that."

With nary a sideways glance, the PM metaphorically nudged the assembled press to "get off ... that".

The two men exchanged thumbs-up and the nation's next economic heart-starter could be revealed.

An unimpressed homeowner told Scott Morrison and the media to get off his lawn.

The as yet unidentified man request is one that would fill most suburbanites with familiarity.

How many times did your dad utter the very same thing - possibly not quite as politely?
