    I was edging a doctors office the other day. It has 2 entrances. 1 with steps and 1 that is a ramp for wheelchairs. ( they go to the same door) The steps where edged and I was working on the ramp when this "proffesional" woman was walking directly behind me (while I was edging with a weed eater), taps me on the shoulder and says "Excuse Me!" so turned and looked .. cut the trimmer off and said "yes?" .... " I'm trying to walk here!" as she snaps her neck and struts up the walk. I stood there for a second and turned and said " What the h*ll is wrong with the steps? Can't u see I'm working here?" ( I was a little peved) She says " I didn't want to use the steps" and walked inside. I thought to myself.." man I'd hate to be her husband!" can u believe that? What is wrong with people? Had to tell someone

    I'm sorry about that. I’m sure I know the woman personally. Was she driving a yellow Walker? I was glad to hear she was at least well dressed. I tell my wife to call you later and apologize when she gets up.

    SLS is so right!

    Makes me think of a good bumper sticker, one that I need.

    "My Ex's other car was a broom!"

    I am sure that this womans other car was a broom too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Since we are on the topic of ignorance, i was mowing a hill at a really nice house the other day, and in the middle of mowing it, the lady comes out and lets her dog out to do its business. The dog runs right up the hill and squats right in front of me to do the business. The lady is just standing there watching the dog and i have to stop the mower so the dog can ****. i just glared at the the lady in disbelief. some people are ignorant. In your case, i bet she was driving a bmw? am i correct?

    I would have asked here where she works so I can come by and take a s--t next to her desk.

    I learned this a long time ago, theres no pleasing a Yankee woman. It would have been nice if you could have just hit the B---- in the head w/the trimmer and been done w/it.

    You should have just mowed around the pile and kept on going.
