They usually laugh and look a little embarrassed.
I have a customer in my neighborhood that came up and asked if we cut lawns as I was getting off the mower and grabbing a trimmer. Then this winter he asked if we do snow removal as I got out of my plow truck and grabbed a snow blower. Amazing.

Just took a walk around my yard, it is saturated. Wouldn't even think of putting a mower on it.

Inspection stickers were news to me.

I think us landscape/lawn guys are going to be more inline than the general commercial population. My neighbor is an HVAC guy with a big sprinter van all decaled up and he swears he doesnt even need a fire extingusher let alone a med card. Or all the carpenters/roofers/contractors with ladders falling off their trucks or wood falling out of their beds. I have yet to see a local tow truck with dot #'s?!
