    When your hairstylist asks"what exactly is this in your hair?"
    "When you have to buy new work boots once a month in summer and you get to the shoe place and have on two different boots on your feet.

    When you get to a potential clients house to meet with them ,open the door of your truck,and garbage and drink cups fall all over the street.

    When you have to refuse a dinner date because you just cant get your fingernails and hands clean enough to eat in a public place.

    When you tell the customer to stay out of the way intell your gone for the day.

    On your day off, when you are backing into a parking spot, (or driveway) and you start to turn like you still have a trailer behind you. Did that the other day and I could'nt help but laughing!!! :laugh:

    seems that the harder I try to keep it uncluttered it gets worse especially on passenger side as everything either goes on dash and lands in the passenger seat or it get tossed in the passenger side and when my wife goes with me it takes her a bit to get in as she sacks the trash up on her side so she will have a place to sit

    Your wife wants to go out to dinner and a movie and your idea of "going out" is going to the shop/garage to change blades on the mowers, do maintenance on the equipment while sucking down a beer or two and some wings.

    Too funny I just read my wife that one while we are on vacation and I'm surfing lawnsite on my pda lol.

    "I'm interested but would like for you to ennjoy being here and forget about wrk for the weekend. U don't believe I'm interested?"

    That was her reply.

    If you climb in bedd at night with equipment catalogs you just might be a landscaper.
    If you go on a 4 day weekend and you gotta surf LS from your wireless you just might be a landscaper
    If the first thing you look at is your parents grass instead of your mom. You just might have a problem.

    Enjoy your weekends yall
