Hay all"

Wanted to post about an issue I WAS having.

there's this kid downn the street, that cuts grass, " about 22 yrs old" some how he has a beef with me, NO problem. nothing seroius,

he has a homeowner ZTR toro. the kind you get at home deopt,
anyway last week I seen him mowing at my local gas station, using a NEW toro push mower,

Us being a small town I know the owners of the gas station.
I go in and tell the owner WOW you must have balls the size of beach balls.
he looks puzzled, I tell him that having a uninsured kid mowing is asking for trouble.

He said he got this kid cheep, I tell hime YES but just wait untill he pops a 12 or 13 hundred dollar window. or strikes a child with a rock.

this is a high traffic station. allways busy. He ask me how much woud I charge. I gave him a bid of 125.00 a Cut...
Looks like it would take 20 to 25 minutes to cut it, because of the high traffic and potenchal for glass breakage.

So the next day I returned to find glass broken.

and YUP you got it, it's a little over one thousand dollars.
and sure enould this kid has NO insurance....

life sometimes is bitter sweet....
