Let's have some fun here. What is the wildest thing that you have seen while working on a job. Maybe it was something that a neighbor was doing. Maybe is was something the homeowener was doing.... their pet or ?

we do pool service as well
a few winters ago we were opening up a indoor pool for the day. it is in a greenhouse like glass building.

it was super cold out (for here), about 20 some degrees. there was a fog inside the poolhouse so thick you could not see 3 feet.
we opened the door and heard some noise. we kept quiet and started wakling the perimeter of the pool. we came up on 2 people in the jacuzzi-- naked--.
turned out they were both female. they jumped up and ran for the other door, that we had not unlocked yet. they then ran a lap around the pool and ran out the door... without thier bikini's or clothes.
they very quickly came running back in asking if we could hand them thier clothes. thier hands were busy trying to cover up (remember they were in a 105 deg hot tub then ran out into mid 20's naked and wet.
talk about goose bumbs.........
as they were getting dressed they pleaded with us not to tell anyone, if thier husbands found out they would freak.......'

well, I was mowing this lawn a few years back and happen to look up and saw 3 or 4 college aged girls next door getting out of the pool naked!!, and climbing up this latter to go down a slide. it was a high end neiborhood. they happen to see me and they started waving at me. I waved back and turned my mower around looked down at the lawn the rest of the time. didn't want to expain this one to the misses.......... :D :D :D :blush:

A few years ago we were North bound on I 69 between Indy and Anderson. It was raining and a semi had over turned in the south bound lanes near the Cumberland rd over pass. Well traffic was backed up all the way to the Pendleton exit. Thats almost ten miles I think. People were getting out of there cars in the pouring down rain.
They were climbing up on the concrete bearers that the road construction crews were using to make one side of the four lanes for traffic while they worked on the other two. Trying to see what was going on I guess. Then I saw the strangest thing I have ever seen on the road. On the side of the highway that was closed were tennis teams at least two maybe three different schools going by there clothes. Out in the rain ..pared up in groups of four...playing tennis in the pouring down rain. There must have been twenty people standing there watching.....in the pouring down rain. Not something you see every day on the interstate high way.

I was driving once and came upon some guys that i used to work with when i was not self employed. They were driving a 97 F Super Duty dump truck and had hit a deer. Well the deer flipped around the front of the truck to the drivers side and its back hoofs had gone through the drivers side window and sliced open the drivers head. Pretty cool.

I was mowing a customers back yard and noticed a high school aged girl jumping on a trampoline next door (no kidding)...

I could see her only on the up bounce... she smiled at me and then pulled her shirt up to flash me! I nearly ran my mower into a tree!!!

Heres the kicker...she was my buddies daughter! She didnt know that I knew her daddy!!!

Talk about an awkward moment...

About 10 years ago I used to cut with a 36" Bobcat. After finishing up the front yard I moved out into the back yard and then to the pool area. I opened the gate to find the teenage son sitting in a chair slumped over with a pistol lying next to him. He took his life and unfortunately I was the first to find him.

Wish they made Worktunes back then. It would have helped my mind out for the next three weeks.

My turn:

While cutting a yard at an apartment complex I watched a nice looking college student walk slap dab into a brick wall while watching us cut the grass.

I have had the customer open the door to pay me with no cloths on and she was the best damn look'n 50 year old I have ever seen to this day.

We had an elder lady (90+) ask one of the workers if Viagra really worked. He was bent over working on a irrigation pump and stood up and almost knocked himself out on the power meter.

I have had a nice young women ask if I would teach her how to be a (Dixie) Chopper Pilot.

More to come later....

well, one day I was driving down Gratiot between 14 and 13 mile roads, and we had the windows down with the trailer, and this HOT girl, probably like in her 19-22 screams out her window saying "can you come cut my lawn, and you can trim my bushes and use my legs as ear muffs". No joke, I nearly **** my pants, it had to be the funniest thing I ever heard... I was sooo pist though because she kept going down Gratiot and I was getting on I-94 :( and it was to late to merge back onto Gratiot.

I was mowing the back yard of a property which has a 2 tier wall in the back so I go around the side and up to the top tier and made my two passes as I glanced over I noticed someone was naked and running the vacum. It was the wife of the owner.

When I was younger and worked for a company on their mowing crew. The leader used to sleep with a client while we worked he got paid to get laid. He would buy us lunch to keep it quiet didn't bother me. But he must have been quick on the draw. Only took 20 min. to get her done, and the yard too. Also working for the same company were in a nice neigborhood and these girls were partying out back. I walked around the corner and they were smoking pot. I was like ah sorry to bother you just came to mow the yard. They were said thats fine and offered me some pot and asked if I wanted a beer. I told them no. Looking back I should have said yes who knows where it could have led to.

This past summer, sitting in the truck in the parking lot of a gas station. Parked by the front door sidewalk to watch the women walking in and out of the store. Saw two vehicles, a suv and a truck come flying into the parking lot, and around the gas pumps. Suv broke away from truck and pulled up to store in the parking place next to us. Two women and 3 kids jump out, crying and scared to death. They take off running towards the ,but take less than 10 steps when the truck pulls up behind them, and the driver fires three rounds towards them. Truck speeds away, no one is shot. We call 911 and reprt it and check on women and kids. Very scarey and very odd. Ends up, man in truck is crazy ex-husband.

oh... and I also have this one customer, who ALWAYS hit on us, and shes like 40 or so... shes a big milf too.... anyway, when ever we go over, she comes outside screaming my name and saying she wants this done and wahtnot, but she ALWAYS grabs my wrist and puts it right by her ass, anyway, one day she comes to ask us if we ate lunch yet. we said no, and she made us lunch... anyway, we go inside, and shes being VERY PROVOCTIVE, like bending over in front of us, so her THONG is showing, she got up on a chair to get some stuff and when she did she put her pants down about 2" so we'd see even more... then i went to throw the plate out and my hand hit her ass and she goes "ohhh", like she liked it... anyway, when ever we go over there she asks us if we want anything and what not. Anyway, we didnt do anything with her, we proabably could have. That was such a funny day and Ill always remember it until something better happens. LOL.

I want to know who her previous LCO was and see what they got away with!!!

I've seen my share of naked and half naked college girls and milfs over the years, too...but the funniest thing I saw was another LCO's crew member mowing an account right on the roadway. We were sitting in traffic , and the guy was riding a single Velke on a 48" Snapper hydro WB along the top edge of a man made creek that fronts the local radio station. Well, he looked over at our truck while we were waiting on the light, and when he did, his inside tire slipped over the lip and he took a nose dive about 8 feet to the bottom. He should have let go and bailed, but he went down with the ship...lol..We saw him get up immediately after landing there(water was around 1' -2' deep..), and his partner saw it happen, and was running over as well. You never know what you'll see...lol

Just got done cutting an area one day and classes let out so we stopped the equipment and were shooting the breeze until we could move to the next area and there were people milling around and all the sudden the sprinklers kicked on and soaked several people. The best part was that the dumb kid that stuck his hand into the controller and started messing with it got totally soaked because the controler was right next to a Hunter PGP that had a broken head on it that the sprinkler man was there to fix. Pressure shot a stream of water up about 10 ft or so and fell right on him. We all stood there just laughing and security nabed him and hauled him in for his little stunt. Felt kinda bad for the other kids though.

The day after 9-11-01, when there was a ban on air traffic, we were out working by the Ann Arbor Airport when we heard a jet overhead. Looked up, it was an airforce plane, and he was after a small plane that had taken off from the airport. The jet came outta nowhere and was all over this guy, looked like he was going to shoot it down. The guy had taken off not thinking about the ban, and the airforce jet was all over him. Coolest thing I ever saw.

I've had a customer this year, who incidentally, is the daughter of my hunting buddy and the sister of a detective who I work and hunt with. I started doing her grass when her mower blew up earlier in the spring. She lives with her boyfriend and is 3 months pregnant. She always flirts. I was going to be in that end of town and it was two days early so I called and asked if she needed done. Poor choice of words i guess because she said yes and told me her boyfriend would be gone at about 10:30 until 3:00 then she said she just knew that I finally caught on and that she was really horny. I laughed and said no I meant your grass. so I was there and gone quick as I could without to much contact. I return to do the next cutting and she came out and hugged me and started talking about touching herself. I said your trying to get me in trouble here and went about cutting the grass. she came out just when I finished trimming around the porch I said I'm going get my blower off the truck and I'm done. She said if you need any help with your blower all you have to do is say so. I just kinda chuckle and try to get the heck out of there fast. I'm blowing the grass off of the walk and I see her step to the door, well when I get up on the porch to blow the it off I get right next to the door and she starts beating on the full view glass door. I turn around and she flashes me and says, "what do ya think of these?" I said nice and go back to work and she beats on the door again. Next thing I know she got her sweat pants around her knees. She says what do you think of this and I said that looks like it could get me in trouble to which she says I've been trying to show you for weeks but you never look when I do. I said well thanks alot I've got to go. Her dang boyfriend was standing out back at the garage. So I figure I'm done with this crazy girl. Two days later her boyfriend calls and says she really likes the way you do the grass so I want to go ahead and contract you for next year before you get to busy. :help: This problem has NO happy ending either she gets peed off or tells her family or something stupid like that. I'm not loosing my family, retirement house or business for this goofy winch. I'm outa there for good. Anyone else want the address?

I was out doing snow removal today in a ritzy area of town and saw a guy pushing snow off his driveway with a golf cart.

I had to do a double-take but sure enough it was a golf cart with a blade on the front of it, the guy even has his golf bags in the back of the cart. I've never seen that before, didn't even know they made a blade for a golf cart.

I was mowing near a drainage ditch and a kitten came out of it and ran under my Ferris 61. Well I can tell you it made me sick and I had to go home. It cut the tail in 3 pieces and the kitten was still alive - but it was cut in half!
It was trying to walk - I had to stab it with a pitch fork to kill it - didnt really know what to do with it! Later on when I finished the lawn the other half was in the driveway about 20 feet away - ass, nub of tail and one leg.
YUCK.

I was fertilizing a residential lawn and came around the back of the house to do around the pool, when I saw the lady of the house, shall we say, "on her knees" in front of a man, who was to busy enjoying himself to notice me, and it DEFINITELY wasn't her husband!!!

I have had two things happen to me first I was cutting a large lawn when I sensed something behind be I turned around to see a coyote with a rabbit in it's mouth standing looking at me. It then walked across the lawn and into the neighbors yard. Then I was doing a fall spring clean up and was walking up a hill along side the house when I looked over to the neighbor's house and see an A@@ looking back at me.well it was the neighbor layying out in the lawn sunbathing in just a thong if that is what you want to call it. Seems she runs around her yard half naked to Pi@@ the neighbors off. Her body isn't bad,but her face.....and her husband looks like a porn star.long hair and the shirt open to show off his chest......maybe he is,but he is very scrawny. Then once me and a friend of mine that works for me saw what appeared to be a suv into the back of a building so I turned around to check it out. It was two hot chicks passed out in the SUV with the radio blarring. So both of us being EMTs, him a police office and I a firefighter. I called the police It looked like acrime scene though both were breathing one started having agonal breaths. w/ in minutes police, fire, ems were on sene. we pulled them out the passenger woke up to inform us that they just stopped to buy cigerets and just fell asleep. Well when she saw her friend trying to be revived by ems she informed us they had taken horse tranquilizers. It was a good save.

We had a crew working on a landscape project for an invester in the "bad" area of town. When the crew pulled up a hooker walked over and asked them if they wanted a good time. The guys told me they said no, but the kicker is that everyday for the next week her and her pimp would be sitting on this street and he would send her over to ask who wanted to have some fun. Makes me wonder what took place the first day to make her keep coming back???
