i had been training this guy on mulching for about 2 weeks or so. i left him in the front yard, and the new foreman whom i was also training in the back. there was very little left to do in the front lawn, i pointed out what was left. i had to do an estimate, i would only be gone about 45 min or so. well, when i got back i discovered this: you know those cable wire tubes, light green, rounded at the top, about 8-10 inches in diameter that stick up out of the lawns, about 3-6' off the street? well mr. self starter finished the work i told him to, and took the initiative and ringed and mulched it. i laugh about it now, it was pretty danged funny. you know, turning such an eyesore into a feature.
