    This month has been something else for me. In fact these past two weeks have been the worst ever.

    <li> Fired my subcontractor for stealing work from us and soliciting my customers. Now I'm scramblling to get the work done.

    <li> got called back a zillion times because of torrential rainstorms. One person's gutters were clogged so the water was cascading off of their roof and into the planting beds....and flooded out the plants. Now the customer wants me to replace the plants.

    <li> The cops were called on us for disturbing the peace and trespassing in a town house community where we had permission to work.

    <li> Over the weekend someone robbed us. Stole equipment out of the truck and walked off with our hitch.

    <li> After replacing the hitch, we were dumping a load of of the doors swung open and became wedged..then the trailer hitch got caught and snapped right at the bolts. We now have a busted hitch and a bent door..the truck is only 3 months old.

    <li> I looked in the mirror today and saw this mole on my face, that has decided to now I have to go to the doctor...and of course I'm worried about cancer.

    ...and this is only Wednesday.

    And heres what happened this morning:

    The new subcontractor left a customer's patio table outside of her fence overnight while he was installing a new patio. Someone walked off with her table and his tools.

    Then someone decided it would be fun to bend my new truck's antennae in half. :confused: :dizzy: :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I can.

    I was out in Jersey today and got stuck in an elevator with a fellow named Bob. I'm not kidding the elevator just stopped moving.

    It was only 15 minutes............but the stories he made be beg for death.
