    When a customer comes out to talk to you and there was a good tune on.

    do you not do a property walk/check for debri or other structures b4 mowing the lawn?

    take a min or 2 and do a property elavaulation, giving the prop. a good look b4 starting to mow or such will save u time... if you have to stop the mower at least 4 times to pick up trash, u've wasted at least 6mins vs 2mins to do a over check b4 mowing.... :waving:

    Stopping mower or trimmer to talk to a client .... if they would just wait I have no problem spending time talking AFTER I'm done. I have to pull off earmuffs, dustmask, ear phones,,,,all of which then get tangled around each other :realmad:

    Starting a new edge or having to stop to pick up trash in my way,i like the idea of walking the property first,think i will try that.

    Turning the backpack off to speak to a customer kinda irritates me. I think I'm going to rev it to the max and swing the tube when I see them coming. Maybe hold my hand up to my ear and pretend like they need speak LOUDER. ha ha ha
