Happened about five years ago. I wouldn't mind but they insisted that I do the lawn first. Lawn was cut collected and dumped in back of truck when the "drama" unfolded. We emptied the truck and found bits of the watch. They claimed it on their insurance. Still do their garden though but the watch jokes are wearing thin. "Oh watch out" "is it (wink, wink) that time to cut the lawn" constantly asking for the time cause "somebody" ran over his watch. ....

thats hilarious.

I bet it was for the insurance though and they left it out on purpose. may have even been a broken watch he wanted to get rid of.

Time will tell. ( i couldn't resist)

This guy makes the "rich list" every year, he didn't lose the cool or anything, I guess when you are worth Ä250m buying a rolex would be like me buying a box of matches.

A large hornets nest from up in a tree , told the cust the week before to get someone to take care of it because one stung me , cust said it was taken care of , when I was mowing the next week I saw it lying there in the grass and I don't know what I was thinking but for some reason I assumed it would be empty , I ran over it and hornets went all over the place , needless to say the lines in the lawn were not straight that week, weird thing was I actually got away that time and did not get stung , but they were crawling all over the mower when I stopped it. 2 cans wasp spray and back to it.

Same here. THEY DON'T NEED TO SUFFER! even though they sometimes get painless death. God have mercy

I've ran over several snakes. Two of the worst things that I've ran over was a full nest of baby rabbits (fur went flying everywhere) and the worst ever was a possum that was roadkill and had swelled up and when I hit it, it exploded. Guts and maggots everywhere.
