No fortys today, but there were tons of paper trash, soda cans, and water bottles.

And a brake pad. Right where I would have hit it with my mower.

Discriminate me this - why don't I have to pick up trash in any other neighborhoods before I mow?

I really need to drop these accounts.

What kind of mower do you use for cutting bricks and bottle jacks? I use my bagger for the condoms crack pipes, Brillo and syringes. They must make some funked up compost with city yard waste.

Several years back I was cutting a big vacant lot for a bank in the HOOD. Parked my truck on the street in the shade. The locals must have had a good laugh. Bunch of young kids were playing in the street. When I finished up mowing I went to get the trimmer. Yeah, you guessed it. Gone. Along with a push mower and a blower. Nobody saw anything.

Descrimination my arse. It's a matter of risk vs reward. If it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, it probably isn't worth it.
