    Maybe my patience is just wearing thin with all the rain lately, but it seems that people don't really understand that I am sitting on a thousand pound sharp object that is spinning at 3500 rpms is it just me or don't you think you might move a little bit faster if the guy your walking in front of like you have all the time in the world is giving you a stare that would scare the devil himself while sitting on a 60" turbo force with deck shut off so you can walk by safely and obviously has alot to do but here i sit thumb in butt while you contemplate if you wore the right shoes or not sorry just had to vent :blob2:

    I didn't have any problems reading it. Reminds me of a fat azz mother with 3 fat azz kids standing in the door way at Wal Mart not knowing what way to go. But that's diversity. Punctuation and misspelled words, that's diversity, lighten up some.

    Oh my god man, after I read your post for the third time, I think we all feel your pain. We have all been there before. Just breath and relax. They may stop you next week and be your next contract. It's happened to me. I had a guy stand and watch me at the park for several weeks. Stood right there on the walk path, (the one that I have to mow right up to), and seemed to be in the way all the time. Then he stoped me and contracted me for two acres. Good thing I smiled and waved rather than give him the mean mug and the finger.

    the old clients always come outside or look out their window at my hot bod. lol, no, but they always do look. and i have a few accts with some mentally challenged kids that came outisde a few times and watched, but i told them that they should go inside so no one gets hurt, i dont think they understood. so i talked to their parents about the dangers of it and they were glad i told them and the kids stayed inside :)

    Kids are home from school now so I get a lot of them standing and watching me mulch kit on both WB so that helps a little but if they are to close I will tell them about the danger that will hopefully take of it if problem still there I will talk to the parents and tell them the danger most will tell kids what to do have one or two that look at you like -you better not hurt my kid- not my customer but the neighbor I believe communication is still the best way to handle the problem

    No it's not diversity or some other liberal feel good crap. It's a sign of ignorance or laziness and in either case is not something to be proud of.
