on my second job today, my two year old echo 210 suddenly decided not to start. after fighting with it for 5 minutes, i shoved it back into the trimmer rack and went to drive back to the shop. i was ticked that it wouldn't run, and more ticked since i really couldn't afford the wasted time. a mile down the road, a guy pulled up to the light next to me and honked to get my attention. he told me i lost my weedeater. apparently, in my frustration and rush to get it taken care of, i had shoved it in the rack, but hadn't closed it in. i pulled a u-turn as fast as i could with the trailer, but by the time i made it back to where i figured i'd lost it, i saw a truck just leaving the shoulder it must have landed on. i couldn't turn around again in time to catch him. so my trimmer broke down. i lost it off the trailer. and then somebody stole it. things just went from bad to worse. good news is, i ended up getting to replace it with a much better trimmer--i went with the stihl fs90r, and so far am pretty pleased with it. so at least things ended on a good note today, in spite of my kind poopus touch.
