very bad day

today is the worst day i have ever had in my life. not only is today my 23rd birthday but somebody stole my two month old redmax eb7001. i was doing some work at a customers house and i was in the back planting some flowers and the blower was sitting on the ground in the front yard and somebody came up and took the blower. i know i should not have left the blower in the front while i was in the back but i was being careless but i know i am going to be more careful in the future.

that truly sucks but you will have much worse days so just chalk it up to a learning experience & be more diligent in the future.

It happens to all of us at least once before we learn. A few years back somebody stole my trimmer, blower, push mower, and even my gas cans while I was around back. I would drive around in that neighborhood for the next few days. Somene will be anxious to fire that thing up.

Sorry about your luck...

Happy Birthday!! I hate your blower got lifted, but as stated earlier you'll be more diligent in the future. That's an expensive lesson but you're young...you'll recover. Drink up.

Happy birthday. Since you can drink legaly, you should start now, and not stop until you wake up at a friend's house not remembering what you did, and have a sore arm, back, and knee.

ya that sucks they stole your blower. But As this year has been so far, be glad you still have your equipment. I know 4 guys who have had their entire trucks and trailers stolen. 2 of them were cutting the house and litterally came out front to see their stuff rolling down the street.

So ya it sucks, but thats why you get insurance.
