View Full Version : Had to laugh at myself today

I know most posts that start with " I wasn't paying attention" usually involve some sort of gruesome story. However, today I wasnt paying attention and when mowing I ran over someone's newspaper laying in the driveway.

I was almost finished and the sad thing is that I had moved it out of the yard. Nothing like having to pick up 10,000 pieces of paper blown all over a customer's yard.

I have hit paper and it makes a big mess but never a whole newspaper.

No matter how many times you cut it, it will never dissapear.

While living in FL I could SWEAR that someone was purposely putting wet wadded up paper towels on a few of my lawns... you don't see them till it's too late and POOOOOF, confetti!

It's only funny when it happens to some one else. Kind of like when you slip and fall down on ice.
