I have two: a) Rural route Bondurant, IA. July 2009: On my way to diagnose tree problems for an existing lawn care customer (service call), I got a call on my cell phone while driving to her location. The phone call was from my CPS rep discussing (serious) prices, so I parked my truck on a rural driveway to continue my phone call & while trying to make a making a buying decision. While discussing prices with my rep, the "homeowner" drove up. This (upper eighties) man pulled up beside my pickup & stopped his car beside me, then gave me a dirty look. He did not move his car and continued to give me a dirty look. So I put Jeff on hold and kindly explained to the gentleman that I pulled off the rural blacktop highway to answer my phone because that's what folks are supposed to do for safety reasons according to the D.O.T. Well that mad him even more angry. His responded by saying, "In my lane?????" I left his driveway and parked across the highway, knowing that I was actually parked on "county property" --- not his, cuz there's about a fifty foot right-away that belongs to the county. b) Last month. I treated a long-time customer's property in Ames, IA. (winterizer granular fert). Her juniper shrubs in her front yard were quite mature and had actually grown onto her neighbor's property. So to treat the south side of her lawn, I actually had to 'enter' her neighbor's lawn by about 3 feet to access her side yard. When I arrived at the south side of her lawn, the next door neighbor saw me and said I was trespassing on his property. I politely explained my dilemma, but this guy would have no part of it. I had a spreader full of fert, and the junipers were 4 foot tall. So I was "boxed in" on the south side of our customer's lawn. Couldn't go anywhere. Fortunately, I had my cell phone. I called Ames cops. They arrived within 10 minutes. Guess what the outcome was. Anybody else experience weird individuals this year? rscvp, thanks.
