I had the pleasure of giving out an award to my help today.And the "Dummy of the year" goes to............ My foreman! For wraping a Grasshopper 616 around a telephone pole!!!!!!! He calls me to tell me if I ever known anyone to wrap a lawnmower around a telephone pole. I said no I have not, why, did you have a wreck? he said , "well kind of. I got a standing telephone pole stuck between the deck and the drive wheel. Any sugestions on how to get it out? "You could imagine what I was thinking next!How could anyone get a 12 inch pole in between a 6 inch area between a deck and a tire?To make a long story short we had to let the air out of the tire and physicaly slide the machine sideways to get it away from the pole ! Needless to say I was upset but what suprised me my customer had a great sense of humor. I gave her $5 off her mowing for the damage to the lawn which was minimal. And made the foreman apollogize for his mistake. The customer was understanding and said it actually cheered her up. She was having a bad day. Needless to say we ribbed him the rest of the day. Has anyone ever had a simalar incident that warranted an award of this type ? I thought everyone would get a laugh out of this!
