After a fine day of cutting I finished eating dinner at about 6 when the phone rang. It was one of my customers in a very expensive house on the water, oh ya did I say I cut his lawn at about 2:30 today.<br>He asked if I could come by because when his wife went into the parlor a rock about the size of a golf ball was sitting on the floor. It seems that this rock became airborne by TORO and entered the screen then window 1 then window 2 at about forehead height - proceeded to hit the wall about 4" below the ceiling slightly chipping the wall and then falling to the floor.<br>As bad as it sounds it could have been worse. No one was home - thank God. And the room was filled with glass statues and paintings covered by glass that are probably worth more than I make in 5 years of mowing.<br>I remember hitting something while mowing (been mowing same spot for 4 years) but I thought it was pine cones as 2 trees are right in the area. I even stopped and looked at the house but didn't see anything. Someone had taken a tree down about 10 feet away and evidentally dragged a rock into the lawn and I cut it. I didn't notice it because of the screen and the angle of the sun as well as no indication from anyone inside ,which no one was home. But I wouldn't have left if I knew what I had done.<br>The homeowner was very nice about it and today I will gladly shell out my 100 dollar deductable to cover the repairs. (the windows were about 2'x2" old style plate glass, nothing fancy) I think I'll put my mulcher on. <br>Should I give him a break on the bill? I'm thinking about either 1/2 off or a free cut for the inconvenience.<br>Any of you ever cut glass, what did it cost you. Oh ya I hope my birthday is a better day tomorrow , gonna find the bottom of a few longnecks, no better make it cans, I have bad luck with glass.
