    some idiot on a bicycle. I was finishing up with the backpack blower on a sidewalk, and the dude came around the corner and slammed into my back. I was thrown into these bushes next to the road. Man that sure hurt like hell. I tried to talk to the guy but he was really scared and took off. I could not move or breath (think I got the wind knocked out of me) for like 2 minutes. Now my back is killing me and I can barely walk, its gonna be a fun day tomorrow.

    Sounds like a hit and run. Shoulda made sure you were okay or at least able to talk.

    The perfect payback would be this website I used to know about where you could send fake newspaper headlines to somebody, and they looked real. Make him think you died and the police are looking for him.

    I might have to go to the hospital cuz the pain is unbearable. Thanks MCWLandscaping, yeah the guy was a jerk I'll probably never see him again, but if I do I will be ready.

    go see a chiropractor ASAP!! back problems aren't something to go uncorrected.

    Ask people for a referral, find out who is good, and who is the best. you want the best.

    Man I hate that for you. You gonna go to the customer and see if they know him or if someone else saw him and might know him? Around here you can get a DUI on a lawnmower, fourwheeler, or even on a horse if you take it on the street! I would think that they should be liabel for any damages that they inflict on you just as if it was a hit and run. I would call the police and have it written up as a hit & run.
