    Please submit your best nicknames and play on words for services and actions. Such as, Mowron ( moron ). Scalp and skip(don't wanna trim next week). Mow,blow,and go(to hot for anything else). Stop and chop(for grass that hasn't been cut in 6 months), etc. And don't corrupt the thread by saying I'm lazy and need to be more professional, I do good work.

    You're just lazy and need to be more professional. :D

    Actually, my crew used to name the tools we had. I'm trying to think of them, we had a lot. I do remember the "Cindy Loppers" and the "Sorry Bastard File".

    We had a John Deer 48" WB that we called Hoppy as it was Green and the controls were really sensitive; whenever you had the levers squeezed in (stopped) released them both to go straight forward or one side or the other to turn, it would Hop real bad... A couple of guys wrecked it a few times..

    Also, We had a Bunton that the blade belts caught on fire under the deck ( i dunno how), they called it the Bunton Burner after that...

    We had the ""Obstacle Course over in Glassgow"", one with like 30 yard ornaments and the ""Mine Field"" they had like 5 or 6 large dogs and never heard of a pooper scooper... Was NASSTY!!!! You would see stuff smashed in the treads of the tires and your shoes... It was foul...

    LOL Bunton Burner. Nice one.

    How about customers who mispronounce things? I had a guy that called his Bermuda "Permoody Grass".
    And a lady who's car had "Rack and Penguin" steering.

    We dropped off a 48" ZTR for some repairs and when we picked it up the guy asked why we drove a faggot mower. He said he had to hold his legs so close together while driving that he felt like a faggot. (???) So now we call it riding the Faggot.

    We call our end-of-season cutdown and cleanup "chop and drop".
