    I've got these two guys in a beat up old toyota pick up who stare me down and everytime I do a lawn that they think I stole from them. They'll stop for about five minutes across the street and watch me while I cut the house. I'm only 16, I guess they're trying to scare me or something, I don't know. Funny thing is, i have better equipment than them.
    The lady called me because I do two houses next door to her and she thinks I do a cleaner and neater job. So I said ok, I guess they're annoyed.
    These guys just bother me.

    My uncle is an LCO and he sits on the side of the road to make sure I"m doing a good job, that drives me nuts.

    that sounds like a bad situation. get the plate # on the truck in case anything else happens. let a local cop know, give him the plate and truck description.

    your first instinct makes you worry. continue to watch your back. also--keep an eye on your equipment and your truck. maybe they are just studying your techniques.

    ask the homeowner if they think the goons are "suspicious." i'd tell you to go concealed carry, but you're too young.

    I carry a good sized knife, gerber fastdraw. A shotgun under your backseat is a good idea, you never know.

    Your under 21, tell the cops these guys are stalking you. Maybe you think they are perverts and you fear for your life.
