    after blowing and sucking fairly dry leaf's today i told a worker of mine that i think us landscapers deserve a spot in the show dirty jobs.. were not up on the top of the list because their is some crazy stuff on their, but what do u guys think!! o then one guy reminds me of when we are power raking yard's and get the heavy coat of dirt on our faces the sweat turns it to mud.lol.

    Some of my favorite video clips would be:

    Unloading at the landfill, too bad you can't include the smell, almost nothing beats that.

    Lawn gagging (think spring pollen).

    Having a freshly loaded grease gun break or fall apart on you.

    Leaving the gas cap open on the backpack blower after fueling it up, also getting a good shot of fuel in the face.

    Most anything involving unforeseen mud and a 300+ pound lawnmower.

    I'm sure there's tons more.

    Running sod compares with alot of jobs on there. Especially in the rain.

    No you wouldn't. I work behind a desk and I would rather have to find ways to avoid dog poo than stay here behind this desk and away from the sun and outdoors anyday!!!!!:cool2: :cool2:
