    Every Year Brings a New Batch of Scrubs...Here's a list of The Worst Set-Ups for 2005 so far....All Subdivision or City Lots.

    -Guy Running a Battery Powered Mower...Calls Himself...."Enviro Cuts"...Talked to Him and he Carries eXtra Batteries...Saw him in the Morning on a 2k Lot w/Heavy Spring Growth...Drove by 3 hrs Later and he Was Still trying to Plow Through the Thick Turf in the Front Yard !

    -2 New LCO's w/Shiny New Walker GHS Units Blowing Clippings out the Hopper because City Won't Collect Bagged Grass Anymore.

    -1 Guy w/a Yard Man Lawn Tractor in his Truck Bed Trying to Cut 2-4k sq. ft Lots....He Must have Gone to Home Depot and Thought "I'm Going to Buy the Biggest and Bestest Mower Here !".

    -One Guy pulling a Trailer w/a Ford Taurus...Some kind of Broken Down Unidentifiable 21",Curved Shaft Trimmer and a Push Broom ...I Kid you Not.

    So far the GHS guys get My Vote for Buying an eXpensive Bagging Unit w/no Means to Get Rid of the Grass...

    Stay Tuned for neXt Weeks Bumper Crop.

    One Guy Rides Around the Neighborhood's w/the Big Toro, Ringing a Bell...Charges $15 to Drop the Wings and Cut Front Yards Only...Doesn't Trim...Doesn't Blow...Doesn't Do Back Yards...Won't Take any Yard Where Obsticles Impede his Deck Width...

    Awesome!

    I don't know about the financial side, but from a marketing standpoint I love it. It's like the ice cream man, but for adults.

    I can just see guys hopping up and down, pulling on their wives' sleeves, begging "Pleeeeeeeeeease dear? Pleeeeeeeeease can I get the lawn mowed?"
