    We mow the Ghetto here, one of my guys was nowhere to be found while weedeating. I looked everywhere for him, even got the others to look too, thought he passed out or something. I saw him coming out of a front door of one of the hud houses, followed by the biggest black girl I have ever seen in person.....lol. His trimmer was by the front porch. To this day he won't admit doing anything, but he was gone a while, and kinda acts embarressed about it. We have to keep a sharp eye on him now when we are there....lol He doesn't have a car, and only gets out when he goes mowing with us...lol, so i don't doubt it at all.:eek:

    OK, here's one of mine. Customer calls, wants to meet to discuss re-working backyard with new deck, plantings, etc. I get there before he gets home from work, his wife asks me in, offers me a cold drink. We chat for a few, then with her back to me says she just had implants done, whirls around and pulls her shirt up- "What do you think of these? Feel one, see if it feels real to you."

    BK goes all red and flustered, mumbles excuse about forgetting notebook in truck and beats a hasty retreat.

    She got me again a couple of years later - I come thru side gate to find her sunbathing au naturel on back deck...

    last summer i go to a call, the owner is only there on weekends so i just walk into the back yard. well it turns out his sister is staying over and she decided to go skinny dipping in the pool. i walk around back and she screams. she said could you turn around while i get out of the pool and she ran naked across the lawn while i stood there with my back turned. she was cool about it.

    A few years ago, while doing blow outs (early October), one of my customers called and asked if she could set up a definite time for me to show up as she wanted to pay cash instead of sending a check as she was going through a divorce. Not a real problem, just a bit of a hassle. I show up on the day/time agreed upon, its about 38F out... she meets me at the door and says she'll get the cash. I connect up the compressor and start opening up valves. I stand up and turn around and here she is with a handful of cash wearing a wicked weasel (look it up if you don't know)....

    Shame I'm married and was on a busy schedule....lol
