Had to laugh at myself today

I know most posts that start with " I wasn't paying attention" usually involve some sort of gruesome story. However, today I wasnt paying attention and when mowing I ran over someone's newspaper laying in the driveway.

I was almost finished and the sad thing is that I had moved it out of the yard. Nothing like having to pick up 10,000 pieces of paper blown all over a customer's yard.

While living in FL I could SWEAR that someone was purposely putting wet wadded up paper towels on a few of my lawns... you don't see them till it's too late and POOOOOF, confetti!
