    I had this lawn way out in the country 15 years ago. Lady customer was retired. She kept telling me of things she saw me do and I would see her looking out and watching. Well most of the lawn went around the house,, so I started mowing in a pattern going "around and around" the house. I don't think she got dizzy though. But the comments decreased.

    The company I work for was doing work for an older couple...basic spring bed cleanup, plantings, mulch, etc. We were there for 5 days straight. Nicest guy we've ever done work for, provided drinks and even lunch. But wow, he go so friggin' annoying after the first day, I, and everybody else, wanted to strangle him. "Can I get you gentlemen anything else?" is what he'd always say, at least 15 times a day. Cripes. I'm glad we're done with him now.
