In regard to Piney's post:
Sounds like the grand daughter from Gran Torino. Some people need to be punched in the throat.

I should have said. How about you be a good neighbour and pay to get their lawn cut Instead I just said we were behind that day.

Love when a Lady comes out and asks, "hey can you plow me" I laugh every time. Don't think they realize what they actually said

LOL...I had an elderly lady that I did spring/fall cleanups and snow removal for (someone else mowed the lawn) call and ask me if I could come and look under her skirt. She said she had been hearing strange noises down there and there was a terrible smell...said the plumber was the last one down there and he knew how to get in. I was speachless and thinking what she really needed was a doctor, until I realized she was talking about the skirt on her trailer. It turned out she had skunks living under it.

Here is one, tree lined street, huge trees, got a letter from an attorney who represented a homeowner across the street from where I mowed, saying I needed to pick up all leaves on his clients property because the leaves from the trees of the home I took care of blew off the trees onto her yard. Wonder where her leaves went? Guess attorneys will do anything for $$$$.
