    A fella from church calls and askes me if I could cut his Moms place and his daughters place for three weeks as he is going out of town and needs it done. I say yes I will look at them and give you a price. He says just go cut them and let me know how much I owe you when I get back.

    OK so last Friday I cut both lawns, daughters place is a mess, Moms is imaculate.

    Now the funny part. Daughter calls me last night and says. I do not want to be a pain, but could you cut it the other way instead of going from front to back could you go side to side. I think it looks better like that. Plus once I start cutting it again it will be easier for me if thats the way you go.

    I said OK no problem. That was really confusing to me. Went and cut today side to side, but guess what the place still looks like crap.

    From the looks of that dump, the whole property needs up-sold, or condemned.
