Yeah, I thought the question was "that you didn't see"

I had a guy run over a 6 foot black snake a few years ago. I was using the trimmer about twenty foot from him. The snake was thrown out the discharge chute and hit me on the r. leg about knee high. I didn't see it coming. That thing must have weighed 15 pounds. It hurt like crazy. I looked down and saw blood and meat. I thought it was mine until I saw the snake laying at my feet. You know that split second when you first see a snake and your heart skips a beat. I think I had a minor heart attack. That was his first and last day of running the mower.

Car mat, nice looking lady was cleaning her car, all doors were open and things were laying in the yard, never saw her things in the yard. My eyes were focused on other things.

Why would you not let him run the mower because he hit a snake?

Piece of re-bar driven into the ground to hold a tiki torch for a customers picnic. Those cable dog leashes are the worst though.

I was mowing a commercial property and the property manager pulled up in his truck beside where I'm mowing to tell me something, and about the time he pulled up I hit a bed edging stake and it flew right over the top of his truck. The only time I've ever hit any thing like that, and it just happened to be right at the guy. I thought it was gonna go threw his windshield.
