    So I was trimming in a backyard earlier this morning and saw these massive piles of dog shite. So I got to thinking about all yall who suck at trimming and fling that crap right into your face... and then BAM, it happened. Nice chunk hit me right below the eye. I think I'll be a little more careful from now on:)

    That is the nasty. I have heard about others doing that but thankfuly that hasn't happened to me yet. I think I read that someone had some poop fly into their mouths. I can hardly think about it without getting queasy. If it happened I would puke on the spot.

    I almost had that happen to me. Now I take a stick or shovel and fling it next to their driveway ( just kidding ) I usually throw it in the woods or bury it somewhere.

    I have an idea. What about offering "poop cleanup" for an extra charge! :D

    Yep, its happened to me! I always trim with my mouth tightly shut! I've had it up my nose, in my mouth, in my eye. Just one of the perkes of the job over here. Sometimes you just dont see it in time because of light, long grass or just speed! I really hate it when its the first job of the day.
