    reading RodFathers post on a different topic made me think about the time it was raining and I pulled off and left the Trailor gate down...... for over a mile.( could not hear it ! wet pavement and Radio ) worst thing about it is I had 2 others with me !
    Then there was the time I tore off the customers Cadillac door mirror ( yeah the real nice one with a defroster built in ) with mower bagger (right a christmas time, man that hurt).

    Had one of my employee's get stuck on top of a 3 story roof while cleaning gutters , he got scared and layed down flat and grabbed on like a cat for about 2 hours. Took quite abit of psychology to get him down.

    About 3 years ago , I was going to buy a stock with an extra win fall , messed arround and bought some bonds . Well, had I bought that stock I would have netted over 1 mill. :(

    One day I was using a riding mower I thought I could get up the hill, I had done it many times before, this time it wasn't the same. I got 3/4 the way up and the wheels slipped I turned off the blades and jumped off the mower right as it tryed to hit me (blades still spining) luckly there was a porch @ the bottom of the hill or the garage would have been history.
