runaway weed eaters ...

One time I when I was a landscape superintendent for (HUD) Housing and urban development we where mowing a 25 acre complex and I had a bunch of weed eaters on the truck. These two suspicious looking guys where walking slowly past the trailer looking around everywhere ... The next thing I see is them jumping on the trailer and running down the road with two weed eaters ... lol... It was company policy not to give chase. We could have caught these guys easily... lol... They where pretty wasted .. I radioed the police and they caught the dummys around the corner on the next block. It was quite amusing though .. I then proceeded to ream out the employee who left the weedeater cage unlocked ..c

I hate those cars. They put a different muffler on a honda civic and all of a sudden they think they can race a corvette. And the 4 foot spoiler on the back makes it look really extra cool too

3 years ago I watch some kid siphon gas out of the dump truck into his car on a job site late one afternoon. We let him fill up and when he was done called the police. They found him a few blocks away on the side of the road. Seems his Vega station wagon didn't like diesel either.
Been around the block.

If there is time to do it over there was time to do it right!
