    Has this ever happened to anybody else ? I'm cutting grass at a customers house and the next thing I know there are two police cars in front of the neighbors house. After they talk to her a while they come over to me, and tell me i cut the neighbors grass and they are upset. So after talking to the officers I tell the lady I will give her a BILL. then she is the nicest person you would want to meet. Amazing what people will do.

    What are you saying? That you cut the wrong peoples lawn? If so I'd never tell that on here. ;) ;)

    I had someone do this to me before. i cut over into their yard by about a foot and they freaked out. I said i was sorry and that it was just that much that they didnt have to do. Then the guy went into a speach for 20 mins about how when the time comes that he cant cut his own grass anymore that he will be calling me but he doesnt want it done yet because he can still do it and blah blah blah, i was dizzy after his speach.

    I think he said he cut part of the wrong yard and that he was going to send the correct his error by sending the neighbor a bill for the grass he wasnt suppose to cut???? :dizzy: lol

    I think I would send her a bill. Only thing billed for would be "stupid neighbor fee" .

    I'm lost here as well. I think he cut over on the neighbor's property or something. Called the cops? I think this lady is lucky the police dont bill for stops like the local ambulance service does. Maybe they should, it would eliminate the stupid nonsensical calls.
