I decide to go back to the gated area and find out that it will easily fit thru the gate, he just needed to open the other latch.... fml. We picked up a new account and push mow a back yard that always seems to be extremely tall even with weekly mowing. I ask if the 48 will fit and it does... Idk why we r just figuring this out now. I'm guessing he wasn't comfortable with the new machine and was too nervous before to try to lace it thru the gates. O well, life's a lot easier now on wwedsnesdays!

Actually had a guy crap and piss himself yesterday so that he could leave early. I wouldn't have believed someone could degrade themselves that low until today. The guy that was riding with him said that he was setting up an interview with a company closer to his house for yesterday evening. I still didn't believe it because he called in sick today only to call a few hours later to say that he quit because his crew leader was being too hard on him. That was the first we had heard of that.

How does a guy poop and pee his own pants? Its almost impossible to do.
Unless you feel that killer-dump-coming-on-lets-get-to-the-enclosed-fast coming on.

That's what I was trying to figure out. His foreman said the only thing he could figure was that he pissed himself and figured that someone would just bring him towels or something so he decided he needed to man up and poop himself. Just the idea of someone thinking that that was manning up had me laughing pretty good.

Had a customer who was the president of our local university. Also did their daughter and son in law's lawn. Lot is about 3/4 of an acre. Used to do it with my 36" hustler and then got my Great Dane. Found out that the Dane wouldn't fit through the gates. We did this property with the 36 for over a year. While trimming I happened to notice a hinge on the back fence, then looked up and there was another. Turns out that there was a ******* car-sized gate in front of the driveway that neither me, my wife, or my helper ever noticed.
Worst part is I never even got to use it cause the next week the homeowner said his other son in law was going to start doing it, since they were not living there. God bless America
