Slow pay or no pay, customers parking off the driveway on the yard so I cannot edge, then asking why I did not edge there, Stuff in the yards like dirt piles, rock piles, boats, trash etc. I have a clause in my service agreement now about stuff in the yard. Wasp nests. Mosquitoes. Flying stuff hitting you at break neck speed. Hills. Kid toys gotta be a top 5. My favorite is when you mention an area of concern like trashy areas and the customer states, "Oh yea, I am going to get that cleaned up this week." Four cuts later guess what, it is still there!

yep, was blowing leaves today and a woman rolled down her window and started talking. I shut off the blower and take out my ear plugs and say I'm sorry, I didnt hear what you said and she says "That blower is big!" and then drives off.

Agree with the ear muffs. I get red hot when a branch catches them just right and rips them off my head. Also, it really bugs me when people try to talk to me when i have ear protection on. Their lips are moving, and i can't hear them. A few times they walked off, because they thought i was ignoring them. I didn't see them behind me. Now, when i think about it, i take one side off when i see someone, and i'm not running an engine.

When my parking lot/park spots are taken. When i'm hungry and want to park, i have a few places to go for shade and good scenery. Today, two of my spots were taken, luckily number 3 was open. Also, i don't like people waving at me from inside; it's just very weird, because any other time, they'd say "why are looking into my house?"
