What are your biggest complaints????

I know from being in the industry there are plenty of things I get annoyed about. What are the aspects that aggravate/decrease your productivity the most.

Piss poor drivers that are on cell phones. They stop on green lights run red lights, stop dead in the middle of the road or drive 2mph.

2nd would be when I run into the dealer quick to grab a trimmer head and have to wait because a newbie can't strings his trimmer or figure out what mower deck he has so he can can get blades for it of parts. I did wind up going off on one that see every time I'm there with some question.

Lack of talent in the field, ie people who care and not just show up for a paycheck

Threads on Lawnsite that will never be useful or helpful to anyone!

I worked at one place that forbid complaints unless they were accompanied by a proposed solution to the problem. In other words, don't whine, fix it!

I like when everything works. Spent many thousands on truck repairs this year and I hate it.
