So as he runs off I start in on the lawn again and here he comes again, by the way this bird is a ring neck pheasent. So now the bird gets a little more aggressive to the point that I think he will attack like a rooster, so he comes at me again this time I spray him with weed control. He runs off and shakes his feathers so I start in on the lawn again and here he comes again so I turn the machine towards him and he runs toward me so I spray him with the machine and he runs to the back of me and tries to get to me. So now I am starting to get mad so I head back to the truck to get my hand blower, well when I climb ito the back of the box truck he comes to the back of the truck and bows up like he is going to attack so I start up the hand blower and start blowing it at him well he gets so close to the blower that I could stick the end of the blower over his head. So I get back on the machine to finish the yard with the blower in one hand to keep him off me and he followed me all around the yard, untill I was done! So called the owner up and asked him what the deal was with this bird was, and he said it just showed up one day and chased everyone that came in the yard. Needless to say the owner just told me they shot the bird and killed it!
Sticking the blower over its head - now that's funny.

I was trimming a hedge up against a chain link fence and in one spot had to stand on my toes. The back of my pants got caught on the fence and I was stuck. After about 30 min of trying to rip myself free I had to yell out to the customer to see if she would free me.

Haha. I can't believe you even waited that long! I think I'd have just ripped 'em off... That's a good one.

Mowing and came up on a couple of beer bottles. Picked them up and slide one in the machine and had to hold the other in my right hand.

Several cars came by, slowed and was really looking me over.

After awhile noticed what they were looking at - and I was working on a church lawn.

But were your lines straight? For fun, you should stick your mower halfway in a flower bed and lay sprawled out on the lawn...
