Phone rings, I answer... "I need to find someone to clean up my leaves, I've raked them into piles (sycamore leaves) but don't have the evergy yo bag them all up, do you have a truck you can load them into?" "Well, yes", I reply, "However it's easier for me to pick them up if they weren't piled, but I can do it, I just use my mower to pick them up." She says, "Oh, well there's too many for your mower, I need someone to pick them up." I try to explain... " I use my mower to pick them up, it grinds them up and bags them then I dump them into my truck" Then the nutbag says: "Ok, well I will just have to find someone else who can pick them up, I just can't, it would be like 15 bags." I give up... "ok, sorry I couldn't help." click. Ok, does anyone else get the nutbags that think everyone is as dumb as them to actually pick up and load leaves that are still WHOLE??? I don't put anything into my truck that hasn't been shread to dust (providing it's dry...) I'd have 5 truckloads a day if I loaded my bed with whole leaves, the load may only weigh 10 pounds... but it would be full... Same sorta topic, I got a call early in the season, guy looking for leaf cleanup. Asked if I had a leaf vaccumm, I said no, I use my mowers to pick them up. He says, no, you need a vaccumm that shreads them up, this is a lot of leaves. I respond, My mower does shred them up and bags them it's all Iv'e used for leaves for years now. He says, ok, well I'll just look for someone else that has a leaf vaccumm. WTF???? I am just shooting myself in the foot here I guess. If they ask, from now on I'm just answering, "yes I have a highly sophisticated riding leaf shreadder/bagger"
