    I had the funniest thing happen to me Friday. I was mowing a new account for an elderly woman. I could see here peering out the window at me almost the whole time I was there. Well, after trimming I fired up the blower and blew off the driveway and walks as usual. I had trimmed some long stuff along the edges and there were some clumps in the lawn from heavy growth, so I started selectively blowing the lawn. Suddenly she bursts out of the house with her arms flapping. I shut down the mower and went over to her to see what the problem was (I thought it was too loud for her). Then she asks me if I was going to charge extra for blow drying the lawn like her hair dresser does for her hair, because if so she doesn't want it. It was all I could do to not burst out laughing in her face and I politely told her it was included in my price. She said, "Oh, good", and went back inside.

    I couldn't help bursting out laughing every time I though of it for the rest of the day.

    You should have told her that you only charge extra if you shampoo the lawn first!!:p

    It just goes to show that, contrary to popular believe, hair rinse and acid perms DO seep in through the follicles and effect the brain. :D
