    was out doing an estimate today on garden cleanup, power rake, cutting and fertilizing job this morning. just prior to the estimate i purchased a new pair of work pants..

    while at the site i noticed the lady kept on looking at my nice brand new pants.. didn't think much of it until i got home and sat at my desk. as i sat down i noticed i still had both tags on the pants. one of them ran all the way down the right side of my leg with the size of the pant right on it. the other was on the back.. i feel like such a shmuck....

    what is your most embarrassing moment in the lawncare field?

The bad part is the guy caught up with me threes yards later in the nieghbor hood...... and aks me if I was missing something {{{{[ Laughing }}}}}} .not the most embarrising thing I've done, but it is the most recent and it was pretty embarrising........

    I was doing a mow and muclh flowerbeds job two weeks ago, got finished with the mulch and it looked good. Was almost finished with the mowing and looked on the patio of the house next door.
    There stood a lady with a VERY confused and pissed off look on her face.

    It was the lady I was supposed to be doing the work for. I was at the WRONG %*&@ house.

    It was in one of those neighborhoods where one builder built all the houses from the same plans, used the same color brick, all mailboxes are the same.

    Had to start all over again the next day.
    But needless to say her neighbor was quite pleased when they got home.

    i was wearing extremely loose pants, you know, the kind you see all the cool kids wearing these days, and was cruisin on my big 60" w/b w/ velke. i was doing a property next to the athletic field for a local college. as it happens, it was a very nice day, and all the hot college girls were out sunbathing around the field. i was looking very cool, i must say, demonstrating my lawn boy prowess and skill on the w/b. i looked pretty good too w/ my baggy jeans w/ silver chain hanging from pocket, wife beater shirt, cap on backwards. i was running along the property line, lots of briars...suddenly, i felt a giant tug, my coolio baggy pants were caught on the briars. with a loud rip, my digs were torn right off my body, as i cruised on in my tighty whities.

    just kidding!:D
