Could it get any worse than today??? Gas prices are high but we have already beat that horse to death..... Out doing some of my commercial accounts today and well got one done, went to the next, pulled out the mower and go to start the WB and snap the freakin pull rope breaks. Took my tools outta the trailer to do something yesterday and forgot to put them back.....and did I mention I had no rope as I do not carry that? Have you ever tried to push a WB into an enclosed trailer with no power from the engine? Well, let's just say it was a challenge (I work by myself). Go to the local mower shop hoping they can help me. The guy is really nice and pushes my stuff to the front of the line because I am a lawn service.....15 minutes and $10.41 later its ready to go. Go back to the comercial and get it done. I am thinking, ok, maybe this days not gonna turn out so bad after all. Get done there and go to some residential I have. Go to the first yard and do one heck of a job if I must say so myself... ..... Load up.....DID I MENTION AHEAD OF SCHEDUALE......and make my way to the second yard. Pull up, drop the trailer gate and out comes the WB. Paying close attention to the method I use to pull the rope (as to not fray it again) I get started. Back and forth, back and forth.....got to get this yard pretty..owner coming home from vacation. Half way across the front yard and BANG....THE FREAKIN TIRE BLOWS!!!!!! Well...now this is interesting. I mean FLAT....slime all over the place from a previous nail hole fix......DID YOU KNOW THAT STUFF STAYS LIQUID???? I didn't. So now the WB WILL NOT MOVE under its own power due to the tire breaking the bead..........imagine a chewed up tire here.......cut the mower off and tried to "manhandle" it. NO GO! Decide that the best course of action is to get the trailer and back it into the yard, dang tire tracks in yard now, and get it as close as I could. ONCE AGAIN try to "manhandle" the mower into the trailer. NO GO!!! Did I mention I work alone?? The neighborhood I was working in is for lack of better words built in the woods and well no neighbors around ANYWHERE to ask for help. Gated community so my buds would have to go through the BS at the gate IF THEY are home. Hmmmmmm Thank goodness that there was a house framing crew just down the street and that they were nice guys... Well me, two construction workers, a little cussin, and a lot of sweat and the WB was finally in the trailer. Now I gotta tell you loading a WB in an enclosed trailer with no motor power and a flat tire is a chore......remember that if you are ever thinking of trying it for fun..... Well for tonight the WB is sitting on a jack with "FIX TIRE" as the first thing on my scheduale for tomorrow. This ought to be fun. Anyway...thats a little of the "great" day I had.....hope yours was better!
