    One of those days, I was mowing one of my commercial accounts today I set the deck height at 3.5 and started mowing after about five minute's I had realized that I never turned the blades on what an idiot: dizzy: Has anybody done this or something similar?

    Oh see when I first park the Wb on the trailer right after I'm done cutting, I let the engine idle so it cools down, right? Ok, so in the meantime I start my trimmer and more than a few times did my mind just blip and I went off weed-eating and by the time I got back to my trailer, the Wb was still idling. :cry:

    Another good one is pulling to start a 2-cycler like the handheld blower, first no choke and nothing... Ok, set the choke, still nothing, so unset the choke and pull and PULL and *PULL* and &^$%^!!! ... Oh... The ignition switch is still on O instead of I ;)

    The one I REALLY hate is re-filling the sprayer with round-up. First, release pressure, then refill and set it back in the truck (and forgot to close the stupid pressure release valve) and by the time I get to my first yard, it's already half empty. This one bugs me bad. :dizzy:

    My big consistant blooper is taking my earplug out of my ear and tucking it behind my ear, then when I get to the next account start looking all over the ground cause I cannot find it.

    Or the times when you put your sunglasses on the brim of your hat, then asking your help if they have seen your sunglasses and them looking at you like you are an idiot!

    I just did that one the other day. Probably pulled the rope 15 times wondering why it would not start.

    That's funny. I did the same thing the first week of owning the Z-Cat. Made about half of 1 pass and realized still in transport mode. Looked around feeling mighty stupid and have never done since.

    Another thing is the employee is always cranking and cranking on the rope to find out that it's still on O. I have always been in the habit of shutting off and then flip it to | before putting back.
