I recently picked up a common area job around my house. I bid it based on looks and how much time I thought it would take me. Man, I walked out to the first part of the property this morning and it looked like a trash truck overturned. Oh well, I thought, it's next to a major road....wrong. Every area I went to today had some form of trash whether it be new (sitting on top of the grass) or old (buried beneath the weeds). What should have taken me not even 3 hours ended up being 5 1/2. I hauled out 6 30 gallon trash bags and triple cut every area (grass was very neglected). All in all, it's a lesson learned that I probably will never forget.
