A sad day for my business.

JUst about every spring i deal with the same problem. And every spring it leaves me thinking, "is my business worth this?"

Somewhere tonight in an old ladies backyard, there is a family in mourning. Their home has been destroyed and their lives torn apart. They cling together with hopes that this day was just a dream but nothing comes to comfort them. Somewhere tonight a family laughs and remembers the good times they once shared together, yet tears follow when they realize that these memories were their last. Though there is nothing we can do, our hearts still reach out to the family of bunnie rabbits who lost two loved ones on this sad day in may.

god bless the baby bunnies
casualties of lawn care.

That's no lie, It really messes with you throughout the day. I killed three today. They were in a hole in the ground, couldn't see anything, and when the mower was over the top of it they came out. Sad story, especially when its the first customer of the day. Worst thing is that two of them weren't completely killed, so I had to end their suffering myself.

If it's any consolation to you, rabbits LOVE to reproduce. They'll make more

A poem for dead bunnies? I have the # for a good shrink. You need help coping.

Humm. Interesting and different approach. I would never have thought of telling it this way.

I used to have a pet rabbit... when I hit one it can put me in a bad mood the rest of the day. Its not enough for me to be deciding wether or not my business is worth keeping, tho. Try hitting a cat and having to clean the remains off of someone's fence. Not fun.
