    I had one similar to the naked guy many years ago in an affluent part of town---older man would answer door and run around in a speedo (no pool was at site). while talking, I happened to have my hand pressed up against a pillar and the guy kept subtly trying to place his hand nearby and I was cognizant of him slowly moving his hand to touch mine. I thought it was more funny to mess with the guy and make him feel uncomfortable... 'Hey, what are ya trying to do?' Weird and odd

    One more tale from the vault.

    We mowed this 90 yr old lady Emily for several seasons. Back then I only had one worker, Sam.
    So we get done mowing, Sam and I go in the entry to get the monthly check.
    Sam's pants had a rip just about where his front thigh pocket is.
    All of a sudden Emily says "oh you've got a hole in your pants" and she shoves her hand in Sam's hole.
    Funniest part was. Sam is a very shy 17 year old at the time, he just stood there smiling and turning red.
    Priceless to say the least.

    All names have not been changed, we're not protecting the innocence.

    just another example of how folks take advantage of lawn professionals! they've read too many romance novels (or watched too many B Cinemax movies)

    I was shooting the chit with a customer that is a tug boat captain. A lady two doors down came out in a bathrobe to get her paper. Ron yelled down to her. Hey what do yo have on under that? She opened her robe wide and yelled back... nothing. Lol
