    The more you talk to me the quicker I will try and do your lawn as you just used up 3 mins of my time!
    I should have quoted more to account for the 3 min chat I have to go through each time I came to mow.
    I am charging for this chat, its inc in the mow price.
    I hate your lawn
    Clean up the dog mess
    Kids toys, they are everywhere!
    I am not coming back next fortnight, have replaced you with a smaller lawn at a better price
    I over quoted
    Comment on how different cultures try to beat the price down and get you to do extra work
    Tell them how much crap I have to deal with each day

    It annoys the heck out of me because it takes forever to come out of the tire...though it might just be my tires.

    I was once trimming a high area near a fence and hit a pile of dog crap that I didn't see. Got flung all over me - talk about disgusting

    iv never done this. mowing trimming over horse crap even. last time i trimmed dog crap, a piece rolled a few feet and bounced off my shoe.

    i think you guys are just running your line trimmers too fast.
