    I tried that with one woman...didn't work out...I got tired of starting all the handheld equipment for her which she couldn't seem to manage. Now she just answers the phone and supports me. Oh yeah...she's my wife.

    why, bobby? and give an actual reason, not one of your usual smart-ars, "woman should be seen and not heard..." responses. Give a real reason, please.

    ( I would never hire a woman to mow, other than myself. I know that I am gonna hear it-but I wouldn't have a woman mowing b/c I don't want to hear the complaints about the heat, rain, or whatever might else be sucky that day. I just honestly think that this is man land and most woman cannot cut it. Sorry, but that is how it is.)

    I think women can do a better job at just about any job on the face of the earth... women are more patient,much more picky, etc., etc...

    BUT, we still clowned on guys who had girls in their crews... or, maybe felt sorry for them... I enjoyed my time away from my wife and women... we enjoyed our established MAN environment where we could talk man talk, finish up early and go play some pool and have a cold beer. I enjoyed and loved my wife when I got home, especially when I sat down for dinner. (lol)

    well, lets see, dont think i have enough room on this page to list all the reasons. here goes: they are not as strong, not as durable, lets face it, the work combined with the elements makes it rough some times. they are sensitive, you have to watch your mouth around them. they are pretty, and may "distract" us from our work. they dont work well under pressure, they cant make rational decisions under pressure. if they need to pee u have to take them somewhere nice to do it, not the woods like we do. i have 100 other reasons but its almost 8:30 am, gotta go. btw, is that your pic ultimate? or your wife? girlfriend?
