I stopped at a gas station to put air in a trailer tire, went in the store to get change and came back out and there was another truck and trailer parked right next to me, the guy says, Are you Mike klein, I say, yeah, how do you know me? He goes on to say he went to school with my younger sister, and he knew I had a silver dodge. He had two flat trailer tires as well. So we get to talking, and comparing mowers, trimmers, blowers, etc. He loved my HUGE ferris with the custom air filter set up. He had a old toro WB and 2 cub cadet WBs, he said he only had 13 yards total, but he had 2 employees with him? I asked him how many he did today, he said they got 5 done, and acted like that was a big deal? All 3 were worn out and sweating like crazy too??? So I am taking off and ask him if he has any more yards to get done tonight, and he said, well, thats confidential, but I will be working all weekend. He was serious too!!!??? I still cant figure out what he meant by being confidential? I told him I had 3 more to do. Anyone want to take a guess?

He really hasn't got a clue what he's doing and just trying to act like he's someone important. I wouldn't put much thought into it.

His whole weekend probably consists of a 5 yard mulch job.

He was also telling me he had to keep another job for the winter, but how could anyone survive on 13 yards during the spring and summer anyway? Well, maybe they are all huge $500. properties?

Yeah, when I first saw you were from nky, I kinda got nervous it might be you I ran into earlier..awkward!! Saddleridge is that subdivision off weaver road..right? I know a guy who had a chance to bid on all the public grass areas in that subdivision. he didnt get it, but found out the guy who did is getting $75K per year for it! Where are most of your yards btw? I am mostly in erlanger, florence, ft mitchell, independence. What kind of truck and trailer do you have? trying to figure out if Ive seen you around town or not.

Sounds like that guy just started out, I reminder when I thought 5 or 7 yards in one day was alot, and yea it also kicked my but too becaused everything was done with a w/b.
