    What time do you people dare start mowing high end residentials in the morning? Just curious. Ever had people complain? Do you try to show up the same day of the week on every account?

    I've never started a mower before 8 am, but then again I'm a night owl.

    starting my first account @ 8am tomorrow. I really hate to roll onto lawns @ 7 or 7:30am but i will do it if i'm behind schedule. and yes, i always mow on the same day unless there is heavy rain or a holiday.

    not to get off subject, but ya the mitsubishi must have been going pretty fast. I didnt see him until he was about 15-30 feet away from me, and right when I saw him I just grabbed my sterring wheel and hung on for the upside down ride/crash. Nope, not on truck 3 yet. the insurance company and the body shop stripped the truck today and inspected everything, but my appraiser hasnt called me back yet. Well tomorrow im driving the jeep wrangler, the last of the cars with trailer hitches, we'll see how well that one lasts.

    quality, yah my sales guy at ford has one waiting for me, but i need to just make sure the 250 was totalled.

    my new truck is gonna be a 2004 f350 single rear wheels, crew cab, black, 4x4, diesel, long bed. the only difference between the new truck and the old one is that the new one has the 8' bed, and its a 350 instead of a 250.
