I had a wheel fall off mid mowing, that was pleasant. Oh and I got stuck at a dead end street when doing a new customer, more fun ensued !

Phones just take a hit in this line of work. Just the dust scratches alone will eventually take away the newness. As for your friend losing his backpack. My dad backed over my one week old Shindaiwa eb-45 (it was in 1987). I left it out overnight in back of my truck. He moves the truck to get his car out and crunch. But the blower still worked as he stopped before major damage.
