@ southernlandscape, i totaly agree with you man, yes it actually was the target next to lowes but home depot is just down the road. The irony of this is, and i know ive been very lucky now but, ive always left my equipment unlocked and gone to lowes, home depot and walmart( which is the worst) and never had anything taken. Again now i realize i was very lucky. I had taken my son to the bowling alley before target to play video games which i had locked my trimmer inside the truck. I took it out and put it in the back with a tarp over it amongst all the other crap i have back there. when we got to target i decided to leave it in the back covered with the tarp because i was afraid of the inside of my truck smelling like fuel. I honestly believe someone saw me at the bowling alley take out the trimmer and put it in the back and followed me to target. Ive definitely learned my lesson and blame myself for being so careless it just sucks knowing that target and/or gville police could give a **** which pisses me off because we HONEST lawn guys work hard for our money, equipment etc. People keep telling me "the economy is bad and people are out of work" i realize this but i dont go stealing from others who work hard to feed there families. I think everyone on this thread will agree that we lawn guys work to damn hard for the pay that we recieve to have to deal with this crap.
