What's the weirdest thing you've seen on a job?

I keep telling myself that I'm going to start bringing a camera just to document all of the weird stuff (and people) I see and make a photo album.
I used to maintain this big church and one day I found and Iguana that was about five feet long with no head. Btw, this is not and area indigenous to Iguanas. I guess that was the weirdest.
How bout it?

the weirdiest thing that I had to ever do was round up 3 pigs, that probably weighed in at 300+ lbs each. They got out as we were mowing the customers lawn.

No, I assumed that some reject owned it, got tired of taking care of it and maybe put an M80 in it's mouth.

I've seen 12 fatal car accidents in 16 years of mowing.

2 of them within a block of the commercial account that I was mowing, while mowing. 1 of them I was called into court since I witnessed the accident.

What did you do the other 4? Just see someone get maimed?

I did a one time cut for a new church. Found a bag of weed about ten feet from the front door.


Cutting a home in a very upscale area. I am buzzing along and happen to look up at a car on the side of the street. A guy in the drivers seat and a girl in the passenger seat with her head bobbing up and down over the drivers seat.
