    was cutting this way overgrown lot when the neighbor lady comes flying out of her house.

    when i mowed her prop line i doubled back on my already cut path so there couldn't have been very many clippings coming out of the side discharge.

    she's like.."what the hell are you throwing those clippings on my lawn for"in a very pist off yelling voice.

    i say "what clippings"

    she says "don't get f'n smart with me"

    i say "oh you mean those clumps you made from your mower" and i pointed to them all over her yard.

    do people seriously get that pist off about a few clippings on thier yard???
    i was in a different area than i typically mow. i'm thinking that all people in this area are stuck up.

    Yup, "Whats that? Cant hear you, dont you see the hearing protection in use?"

    I love that, people always start talkin to ya and you can hear a damn thing they are sayin because you have hearing protection on......they look damn funny when you see but not hear them too :laugh:

    guy came out waving his arms at me the other week, so i throttle down and kill the blades and he says "could you not let your front tires turn in my yard? i stare at him and all i can think about is the part in The Waterboy when adam sandler gives the guy a running drop kick in the endzone. I then realize why i hate people.

    Had one lady come flying out her door jawing at me like Bill Cowher chewing out a player (yep, even spit flying out the mouth). Couldn't hear a word until I took out the earplugs. I Got told if we blew clippings in her grass she would send husband outside to whoop us. I just laughed at her. My helper is a tough guy from a rough neighboorhood that is also a diagnosed schizo. I have seen him punch a hole through a plaster wall. Send that geezer out to whoop us and his a$$ will be laying in pool of his own blood and urine.
    We came back the next week and they had a tarp alongside the whole fence. Nice look.
