one long day

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by odin, Oct 8, 2002.

  1. Just some venting here, my day started about 1 am when two little hurricanes named franny and kristy woke me up in the middle of the night.

    Well off to work first account goes smooth so i start to think maybe that little celtic voice in my head saying its gonna be a bad luck day was wrong.

    LOl What a day it was. hydro goes out on a toro zmaster and me and my nefhew gotta push that thing up on the trailer and get to the dealer merciful that it is still under warrenty.
    next the trailer gets a flatt no spare so i gotta buy a tire.
    Next piece of bad luck nefhew runs a scag walkbehind right up against wooden fence knocking out two boards that we gonna have to replace.

    Then somehow one of the pins on the caster wheels on the scag comes loose and the front tire comes off and he runs over the tire destroying it.

    Well i told him its time to quit pack it up go home.
    If tomorrow is like today im gonna have a breakdown:dizzy:

    Sorry for your luck!

    Bad days happen to all of us... once upon a time a 36" scag walk behind of mine vanished. Turned out the operator made a left turn into a 5' pond!!! Believe it or not after five of us fished it out and serviced it, the thing was back on the job 3 hours later.

    The moral; Never give up

    Walker is the savior of all LCO's.

    Whoops, wrong Walker.

    Sorry to hear about your bad day. It happens to the best of us. I can't feel so bad now that I finally dried off and thawed out after mowing and aerating in a cool rain.

    Tomorrow has to be better. But don't count on those 2 little darlings giving you any rest.

    Dust off your pants, take the reins and get back on that horse. After a good nights sleep of course.

    Take care!
