    I don't know why that person said that. All i'm saying is i don't get the point of some of you comments and stuff you say. Maybe your just trying to be a little funny and thats alright it just doesn't always come across that way to me.

    Oh, well I come from a neighborhood and a family that makes jokes and has dry scence of humor and stuff like that so sometimes I slip things in without even noticing. But yah, what that person said was totally random.

    WOW, I'm new to this site, and I just read that whole post. All I have to say is you gotta start somewhere kid! I started (mowing grass) when you did because obviously I didn't have the parental support that you have. I thought that what us "poorer" kids did was mow the neighbors grass because our parents didn't give us money. Apparently the times have changed.

    Well I do it for fun, it is what I like to do, and it gives me even more money in my pocket.

    Where in W. MI do you mow. I am in Rockford. How many accounts do you have?

    I cut around wayland, dorr, moline, and gun lake. I have 9 everyweek accounts but I always end up doing about 15-20 each week, because either a neighbor wants his cut, or one of my other accounts gives people my number, and the place where I got my tractor is giving people my number. so I get new accounts almost every 4 weeks.

    So a couple questions...

    Who is going to die or lose a limb next so you can get your next piece of equipment?

    When are you returning to school? Your grammar and writing skills blow like a RedMax. (or do they suck like a Hoover?)

    Where did you become so knowledgeable that your dad comes to you for household advice? Most kids don’t need to be changing their parent’s diapers at 18.

    Shouldn’t you be out working instead of hovering over this thread?

    Well I was kind of at school so I couldn't reply, And I don't plan on getting any more mowing equipiment any time in the future for this summer. And I don't use redmax, I use stihl, none of this lower quality stuff. And I know more then my dad because when I asked him to fix some stuff he would always reply "I don't know whats wrong with it" So he'd tell me to go try and fix it, and you know what they say about how left handers think differently.
    And why would I be out working, it's winter. Do you lack that much knowledge to know that you don't cut grass during the winter up in michigan? And it really isn't any of your business anyway.:realmad:

    you should plan on getting some more equipment, like some real equipment, none of that redneck lawn tractor crap. Their needs to be a quote about this, something like "Mowing Commercially with a lawn tractor is kind of like winning the special Olympic's, Even though you win, your still ********". Seriously just go byy a walk behind and ditch the mini van. It makes you look like a low baller.
