Has this ever happened to anybody else ? I'm cutting grass at a customers house and the next thing I know there are two police cars in front of the neighbors house. After they talk to her a while they come over to me, and tell me i cut the neighbors grass and they are upset. So after talking to the officers I tell the lady I will give her a BILL. then she is the nicest person you would want to meet. Amazing what people will do.

I had someone do this to me before. i cut over into their yard by about a foot and they freaked out. I said i was sorry and that it was just that much that they didnt have to do. Then the guy went into a speach for 20 mins about how when the time comes that he cant cut his own grass anymore that he will be calling me but he doesnt want it done yet because he can still do it and blah blah blah, i was dizzy after his speach.

I think he said he cut part of the wrong yard and that he was going to send the correct his error by sending the neighbor a bill for the grass he wasnt suppose to cut???? :dizzy: lol

I think I would send her a bill. Only thing billed for would be "stupid neighbor fee" .

I'm lost here as well. I think he cut over on the neighbor's property or something. Called the cops? I think this lady is lucky the police dont bill for stops like the local ambulance service does. Maybe they should, it would eliminate the stupid nonsensical calls.

I guess the cops have nothing better to do with there time

Did you cut all of her yard or just over the property line

some people feel no shame for calling the police. are you a big scarey looking guy? why would she be afraid to come out and politely show you the boundry? some people are ridiculous.

Next time you run in to people like that. Have them call the Coast Guard..then watch their reaction.

Exactly. Imagine that there is a real emergency, and 2 officers are tied up at some bullshit lawn call. Some people need to grow some, and just deal with problems.

So you mowed the wrong lawn, and after being confronted by the police you said you would send her a bill and then she was happy? That's what I got...

Acutally I think the neighbor thought it was a crime that a lawn boy could charge 25 dollars to cut the grass :) Cuff em and stuff em.....off to jail :)

i have have an account at a bar . i go there every Sunday morning and blow the parking lot clean after the party animals , and there is a house next to the bar,and i assume the guy doesn't like living next to the bar. so i was blowing away and getting it clean for the week and 3 cops pull in and say that the neighbor is bitching saying that glass and dust is blowing into there yard! i told the cop if there is glass there its not from me as i sweep any crap that is next to there house away with a broom then blow it the opposite way , so the cop was happy with it and told the guy to stop calling them lol . i talked to the owner of the bar and the guy that owns the house has been giving him a hard time since he opened lol
