    I was posting in another thread about tools, and told everyone about leaving a $45.00 wrench on top of my plow, and also running over my eyeglasses after they slid off the hood of the truck when leaving a site. I have dropped my eyeglasses out of my pocket thru a 50HP chipper, lost a pair of glasses in a limb pile when doing a cleanup, run over my Peltors w/ the dump truck..etc...What are some of the "DOH!'s" you have pulled o<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008_ZSXXXXXX44US' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_1_108.gif' border=0></a>ver the years????

    Getting to a mowing job a half hour from my house and realizing I forgot the trailer. :dizzy:

    Have also forgotten to bring hand tools for jobs (hedge trimmer, bp blower, tarps, shovels, rakes)..

    Forget the Peltors for mowing.. Man that makes my day boring.. :cry:

    Usually I forget stuff, and thats about the only "Doh" I can think of.. :waving:

    Funny Stuff Guys! :laugh:

    Just yesterday we went to cut and do leaf clean up at retirement home and usually use my Exmark with the Ultra-vac and a push mower.

    Went to off load the Exmark and realized that I didn't bring the bags!!! :blush:

    We had cleaned them up earlier in the week and I hung them upside down in my building to dry out. My son brought the mower out of the building (machine was already on trailer) and didn't notice the bags!

    Made a 25 minute round trip to retrieve them. No big deal, but certainly an inconvenience!

    Stuck my coffe cup on the fender of the tractor and ran over it, but to make things worse as I started to try and catch it as it fell my sunglasses fell out of my shirt pocket and got run over as well. Was on flat gound when it happened and had put coffee cup on fender many times just for a minuite or two while running around opening gates in the morning. Bought new shades(stopped putting them in my shirt pocket) and mug with a wider base, put sure grip on the bottom and never had it happen again. Live and learn.

    Last week I lost a trailer on the highway doing 6o mph. I must not have had the hitch all the way over the ball-because the latch was locked with the pin through it. The trailer got banged up. Noone got hurt. A gas can fell off but landed upright. Thank God for breakaway chains. I am switching that trailer to a pintle hook. I also lost same trailer last year. Maybe I should get rid of it-Harry

    Ran over a grass trimmer. Lost the trailer once also, had to hit the brakes to make sure it hit me and nobody else. Ladder sliding off of roof while cleaning gutters. Had to climb down the outside of the chimney. Spilling 5 GALLONS of used motor oil in my garage. :angry: And last but not lease, lost a grass catcher while going down the highway, (had it up too high in the bed of the truck). Brand new Lexus suv flattened it. :angry:
