What is the one thing that bugs you when doing lawn maintenance?

I really hate it when i am out with the blower and the wind changes direction and everything blows back in my face what are some of the things that you cant stand or that happen ocasionally but drive you crazy?

do you not do a property walk/check for debri or other structures b4 mowing the lawn?

take a min or 2 and do a property elavaulation, giving the prop. a good look b4 starting to mow or such will save u time... if you have to stop the mower at least 4 times to pick up trash, u've wasted at least 6mins vs 2mins to do a over check b4 mowing....

Stopping mower or trimmer to talk to a client .... if they would just wait I have no problem spending time talking AFTER I'm done. I have to pull off earmuffs, dustmask, ear phones,,,,all of which then get tangled around each other

Turning the backpack off to speak to a customer kinda irritates me. I think I'm going to rev it to the max and swing the tube when I see them coming. Maybe hold my hand up to my ear and pretend like they need speak LOUDER. ha ha ha
