    I had a wheel fall off mid mowing, that was pleasant. Oh and I got stuck at a dead end street when doing a new customer, more fun ensued !

    Man Shot After Dropping Gun While Mowing
    Police Say Man Had Gun In Pocket

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A Colorado Springs man is recovering after he dropped his gun and it went off while he was mowing his lawn.
    Police say the man had a loaded handgun in his pocket on Sunday when it fell out, struck the sidewalk and discharged. The bullet hit the victim's lower leg.
    The man, who was not identified, was treated and released from a hospital.
  10. Phones just take a hit in this line of work. Just the dust scratches alone will eventually take away the newness. As for your friend losing his backpack. My dad backed over my one week old Shindaiwa eb-45 (it was in 1987). I left it out overnight in back of my truck. He moves the truck to get his car out and crunch. But the blower still worked as he stopped before major damage.
