don't you hate it when that happens. I've done it twice and its not fun. yes you do smell like sparky's rear end until you take a shower. whats worse is when you hit a toad but that another story.

I hit a Smirnoff Ice bottle with the t270 yesterday.It was under pressure and exploded when I hit it .I felt glass fly by my face( you know when you've been doing this for a while when you can close your eyes before something hits you..lol), and when I stopped to check for damage, there was a piece of glass on my cheek that was stuck there by sweat, not blood. It hit on a flat spot and just stuck. Close one...Had my share of "sparky piles" the other day.I just charge extra and keep on keepin' on...<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/16/16_2_7.gif' border=0></a>

bill,
you lucky "dog":) , here they're "colt 45" and "old english" :o :o bottles. you're one the reasons i started wearing the eye protection, i never saw the radians before, i really liked the idea.

seriously though, how do you charge for the poop? do you factor itinto the price> what if you "discover" it after, while your on the job? The grass i was cutting today was a cleanup. it was about 2 - 3' high. the dog actually crapped, and it wasn't on top, and wasn't on the floor...:confused: thick grass i'm telling you.

Adam, it's in our agreements to pick it up and charge $ 35.00 per man hour to do so, but I never have. I just use the equipment cleaning fee clause in the agreement instead. Basically, when I get into too much dog doo, like when it gets in my tires or on me, I add a $ 10.00 eqip. cleaning fee, and use their hose to clean up before we leave as well. Isn't it fun finding a hidden pile hanging in tall grass like that? I knew exactly what you meant as soon as I read it..lol Just keep an eye open for it in the future or send in the amigo first..haha<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/1/1_4_127.gif' border=0></a>

Last week I got some of Sparkies special "pudding". Went flying through it on my Z and the rear wheel flipped it up in the air like a pancake and landed right on my arm....real wet too. Took a couple of good shakes to unstick it. Little club soda and I was good as new.

A real man---
I watched my cousin in Vermont milking a cow one time. Was winter, about 10 degrees or so. Anyway, we were in his barn and he's on the stoll milking away when all of a sudden the cow has a case of the runs real bad and it splatters. A quarter size piece of fresh pudding lands right on the corner of my cousins mouth. I swear...he looks at me, then without missing a beat takes his tougue, circles the outside of his lips and spits it across and behind him. He just goes back to milking and never said another word about it. He was 12.

I have an account where sparky only does his business up against trees. I know it sound crazy.......the dog craps right where the tree meets the dirt and about 50 pine trees in the lawn makes for a nasty seen. I always do it last and it ain't far from the home 20.

and you think you got it bad :D :D :D

I hit a snake the other day with my Stihl line trimmer. About 30 minutes later, I went to wipe my face on my shirt sleeve and noticed (before I wiped my face) that I had a nice big hunk of snake meat on my sleeve! The best snake is a dead snake!!!!!!

A lawn mower can launch objects at speeds of up to 200 MPH with the force of a small caliber gun.

I mow a townhouse complex in a not so nice part of town. One day this summer while I was weedeating I hit a pile of baked beans that was dumped along the back fence. It splattered all over my clothes and face. It was disgusting!!!
