The ultimate mowing set up ever!!!

Yesterday I saw the ultimate mowing vehicle and trailer ever! It consisted of a 97 Ford Taurus pulling a 4x8 Harbor Freight trailer and bouncing down the road like it had basketballs for tires. He had the trunk open also carrying a 21"er and in the back seat was his brooms sticking out of the one side window. The trailer consisted of another 21"er, a rototiller, electric weed wacker and a drop spreader and 2 bags of fert. (Yeah I bet he is licensed) All of the equip. looked 15 years old. Not to bash him but come on I think this really makes him look ridiculous. If your gonna do it half a$$ed at least do it half a$$ed. But he had a nice magnetic sign said "T*%'s Economical Lawn Service"

All I have is a truck, but at least it looks nice with my stuff on it! Everything strapped down and nothing dangling around out of windows and such. Plus I charge out the ass and get away with it! I like to charge high cause i'm lazy and dont want to do a twice the lots for the same amount of money.
