    Today at several of my stops I've noticed new phone books in the driveway or laying beside the mailbox. I had to move one to the side so I could mow around the mailbox. Well, I start mowing around the swale which is full of water and back up to change directions and all of a sudden. Whomp!! Yellow pages everywhere. Spent the next 30 minutes cleaning up.

    awwwwww yeahhhhhhh, been there done that...especially with old newspapers in the long grass, wow, don't they make a mess!

    worse if it is windy too!

    Everytime I get this happen my blood boils at the lazy ass clients who leave their lawns get overgrown and are too fuggin lazy to pick their damn newspapers up, many here don't call a ride on mowing service till the grass is over 10'' high lol, so no hope of finding them pre mowing.

    The joys of mowing lol.
