Worst thing to hit with a mower or weedeater.

Want to hear the worst things people have hit. Windows bricks and rocks r normal. My worst is a dirty diaper. An adult diaper. Got sick ugh.

With a mower, tissue pack or a steel cable. With a trimmer it goes to a fresh dog turd.

I have never had it happen to me but hitting dog crappy with the trinkets is the worst. The worst thing I've ran over with a mower is a $100 bill. I took it to the bank and they gave me a new one.

I ran over my wallet with a mower a few months ago. The bills survived, but the wallet and credit cards didn't do too well. I had to make a couple of calls and emails to credit card companies

I also ran over a yellow jacket nest in the ground with the mower and they were swarming when I came by for the next pass.

Municipal water valve cap.

Not just the 4" disk that is on top, but I flipped up the whole 4" flange that the cap/disk sits on.

Cast iron, shattered it into a ton of pieces.

The most annoying was a magazine in a shaggy lawn.

I hit a similar one, but it was the rectangular cast iron lid...it actually tossed it about 4'.

I expect this is going to be a good read, I have already got some good chuckles. I hope it keeps up.

We have had a recent amphibian/reptile hatch in our area it seems like everytime I turn around there is a dead frog or gecko I just murdered and more than a few small snakes.
