    OMG has their been a funnier thread?

    I really shouldn't laugh I do feel your pain. Early in the spring, I got the (800lb) roller out to roll our backyard. It was dusk. Rollin, rollin, rollin and when I was makin my final pass. I saw them. It was too late for all but one. That poor wittle wabbit was running in circles and I was trying to see where she was going. She ended up running out of our yard and into safer territory. I made my husband give the rights - I just couldn't stand to see their poor little flat as a pancake bodies. I swear to you, I actually had tears starting. So, I feel your pain Bob. Listen to me, DO NOT Deaden the pain with alcohol, bc you must sober up some time and get back on that horse, son. Godspeed and remember that we are all your friends. They are in a better place.

    There should be a new forum opened up to help all of us lco's work out our issues, such as these. Together, along with oversight from professionals, i am sure that we can put these tragic memories of guilt behind us. Thus letting us focus on our true purpose and usefulness in the lawn care industry.

    Shall we call it "L-anon, the emotional tragedies of the tortured mind" -or- "the darkside of lawncare".

    "L-Anon...I like that.

    "Hello. My name is Joe, and I'm an (Lawnsite) addict."
    Now, we just have to work on the 12 step program.
