    don't mind me guys, i had a great day today, and am in a good mood(momma, crack another keg). so now tell me, what are the top 5 reasons u like being a lawnboy? i'll start........................................................ WHY I LIKE BEING A LAWNBOY, by bobby g:i like being a lawnboy because i don't have to deal with a boss. i like being a lawnboy because i like to be outside, in the fresh air, doing physical activity. i like being a lawnboy because i like seeing, meeting, and talking to different people all the time, today in fact i met a nice lady at the nursery, and i talked to the mailman for awhile while i was putting in mulch. i like being a lawnboy because there are always lots of girls home during the day, they think the lawnguy is sexy, and also think he's stupid, so when they talk to you, it's only cus they have sex on the brain. and finnally, i like being a lawnboy because all my work is in a 20 mile radius of my home,i can take a break whenever i want, if i'm close to home(and i usually am) i can stop in, see the wife and kids. i can take my boys to the mulch place, and they get a big kick out of "the big yellow machines". and, i can pace my day, so i can take my kids fishing after work. let's hear it guys and girls, why do u like being a lawnboy?

    I like walking away after finishing a lawn and seeing the green grass. The stripes, riding the machines. But im starting to really get turned off with some of the customers!:angry:

    I like making my own hours, seting my own pay, not having a boss yelling over me, working outdoors, and riding the machines.

    Doing a landscape install and see the bright smile on customers face when they get home from work and they say, that looks awesome!
    Fresh air.
    Having 4 months off in the winter.
    Making nice stripes with my mowers.
    Making enough $ to live in a nice house and go on vacations when my customers probably think I only make enough to barely pay the phone bill and live in a scuzzy apartment.
    Freedom to be able to choose who I work for.
    The overall pride of business ownership.

    Working for myself. Nobody tells me what to do. Working outside. Its gratifying work, knowing it looks better when you left than when you showed up.

    Guess I wasn't paying attention. ADD ya know.
    Running my own business and setting my own hours. Taking on only the work that I want.
