    Mine would fall under the horrorfying category. 2 seasons ago i went to my last stop of the day and started working. When i got to the backyard i found my customer dead on the ground. She was a nice old lady who REALLY shouldn't have been out side trying to do yard work. I called 911 waited for the cops to come and after they questioned me i went home. That vision haunted me for the rest of the season.

    Unusual one here:

    Last year while mowing at a local church I maintain, I almost ran over an iguana. Yes, one of those big lizard lookin' things. He climbed up a pecan tree and stayed there soaking in the sun all day until I left. Needless to say, next week he was gone.:)

    didnt happen to me..thankfully but i was in a basement wiring up a septic tank and the plumbers were in there. Well one stepped back and his leg went down through the sump pump tank lid into a full sump pump...it didn't rain since the basement was dug, yet the thing was full of "water".... turns out the mexicans who frame the house use it as a toilet instead of walking 100yards to the nearest porta-potty...needless to say it was the end of that guys day
