    I'm just throwing it out there but I have a 6x12 dump trailer 5k that hasn't moved all season. Basically brand new, had it for years now and it just sits.I think it was $4-5k brand new. If anyone wants to trade an enclosed trailer and a mower or something let me know.
    Also have an 88' Chevy 3500 srw with rt1/2? Boss V that just sits all summer also. Just put new heads on last fall. It plowed all winter like a tank. 3speed so probably be a single lot truck or close local. Not real pretty but it works like mad!

    You know you have the right to stay silent when he asks where your going right? I would of never said I'm going to bid a job.

    I'm assuming he didn't tell him that, but the bike is in the company's name maybe. Also I'm sure the cop gets real nice when you choose not to answer his questions

    If I had nothing to do the day a cop pulls me over for some crap reason and I know he can't get me on anything i'd love to try the "are you detaining me officer or am I free to go?" on them when they try to question me.

    My dad is trucker and all the time when they get pulled over they ask what he is hauling and where he is going. Legally as a driver he is not suppose to say so he will tell them its non of your business.

    I just love being in business. I love waiting on money, dealing with the public, not meeting deadlines, payroll, dealing with employees, firing employees, weather, breakdowns, insurance, weighmaster, competition, did I say firing fighting employees, cut throat contractors, RUST, non-payment, collection services, small claims, NEVER BEING HOME, large payroll , making sure there's enough money on the bank, gas prices, expensive parts, tickets, firing employees, hiring employees, mulch bills, $120 belts for mower, ex employees sololicting customers, credit cards, managers pissing of employees, slip and falls, no sleep, bidding, designing landscape jobs, trying to see my kids before bed time.

    This is a normal day for me.


    Oh wait. My guys hit a sprinkler head with a mower and the customer wants it fixed at 9 pm at night because the world is ending.
