    ok i have a small business and one of my accounts was two baseball fields, i lost the account because they said i didnt mow when it was wet? am i missing something or do people mow athletic complexes and fields with water standing on it? its a nice complex by the way, oh and the guy that got it just happened to be a son of the president of the board.ive had the account for five years.
  2. you know why you lost it, think about it.

    sorry about your luck. I wouldn't attempt to cut when it's real wet let alone standing water. They already had the other guy lined up so they needed a way to cancel service. Time to move on.

    Yes, that's life.

    With that said, unless the whole field is completely flooded, we mow as much as we can, while mowing around the standing water.

    If it's not too big of an area with standing water, we'll use the trimmer and do the best to finish the job.
