1. Muddy yards in the middle of 98 degree temperatures when we haven't had rain in two weeks.
> Between having to push a 500 lb. mower or having to manually trim huge areas...

2. Customers cutting it themselves, because it got so "tall."
> Yeah well now there won't be grass to worry about cutting, seeing how that was the goal..?
This, of course, gets denied vehemently.

3. Folks dancing around the bush looking for the right words on how to ask me... To cut it 'sharter!'
> You want to see me get fired up, just start down any of the above tracks.

do that stuff in the early spring or late fall. why don't customers understand this?
There's no time for it when we're super busy spring and fall, now there's ways to do mulch and trimming in 100 degree weather, just don't do it between 10a - 4p.

I got everything done today! I don't mow lawns on the 4th, so I really was speeding through yards. Just 98 degrees and humid every day. Author is throwing some storms this way but so far none have hit my lawns. We did get some rain last weekend and Monday. Still need a lot more than that with this heat.

I could have done everything today, but its a little cooler and I haven't lit the grill in a while.

Ill be done by noon tomarrow just on time for more beer and BBQ.

Looks like we all need some rain.

Drivers are nuts today. My life and my agenda is just as important as yours. When I merge properly, it doesn't mean that i cut you off. I don't mind staying home tomorrow, AT ALL. I predict two things that usually happen around here on the fourth. Some drunk guy blows his hand up with fireworks, or a boating accident caused by a drunk boat driver. I'll be in my shady backyard watching it on the news.
