    If you complain that there are "ruts" (track marks) when I mow after a rain, I will skip you when it is wet... If you then complain that your grass is too tall after 2 straight weeks of rain, I will drop you like a sack of rocks.

    Just because you don't care if you or your kids step in your dog's crap doesn't mean I am fine with working all day with it stuck in my boots.

    It grosses me out when you bring me a drink, and the cup is all stained and nasty.

    Usual consumer grade pablum to make homeowners think they have the upperhand on knowing what's best for the lawn. My favorite is cutting warm season grasses at 2". I make lots off resodding SA that gets cut at 2". I bet this article was sponsored by HD and Lowes.
