This afternoon I headed out to mow an account a few towns over. A trucking company. I am mowing with my Z around the front lawn of the warehouse. Lawn is a little dusty. All of a sudden this man comes over towards me from across the fence (at a boat shop) waving his arms like somebody's hurt. I get off and go to talk to him. He looks pissed off for some reason. Him-"Can you come back to mow this tomorrow" Me-"No sir, I'm afraid I can't b/c I won't have time, I live 30 minutes away" Him-"Well you're blowing all this dust over here and I'm trying to paint my boat and you're ruining it." he was not an employee at the boat shop. Me-"OK, sir, I'll try mowing in the other direction" So I mowed one direction, shut off the PTO, drove back to the end and started on the next lap until I got farther enough away. Here he comes again throwing his arms in the air. I do the same, while he is yelling at me about the dust I am yelling back to him "I'm sorry, but there is nothing I can do!!!" Me-"I can't come back and do this later" He was really aggravated. Him-"YOU'LL F!@#$%^ COME BACK TOMORROW B/C I SAID SO!!!" I thought he was gonna jump the fence and attack me. Thank god one of my buddies from the warehouse came over to cool this guy down and save my butt. Me-"I feel your pain, sir" Him-"NO YOU DON'T!!!" Me-"alright sir, I'll mow the rest with my push mower, it has a mulching plate on it and it shouldn't spit out much dust" Instead I decided to just come back the next day, with 1 hour of transportation time wasted. Me-"Sir, I am going to come back tommorrow. Once again I apologize. Have a good evening sir." No response from him, no apology, no Thank You, nothing. End of story. Well, one thing I learned today is no matter how hard you try, you just can't please everybody. It's hard to decide whether to give up a fight or not, and to just roll over.
