    Ok I am driving past the firehouse today in town and I see this mowing guy across the street, not even a real LCO b/c all he does is mow with his one Z-master, he doesnt trim, blow, anything, just sits and mows. Then I notice he has his liek 8-year old kid sitting on his feet on the foot platform with his head sticking forward like hes on a crotch rocket. About 6" in front of the deck. I just fear for that kids safety as it seems his father doesn't have any sense of safety for his children.

    I would have gotten out of the truck at beat the **** out of that guy. That is just plain stupit. I know my dad did that with me. But it was on a garden tractor with me in his lap. I stop everyone nowdays and tell them how dumb that is.

    I mean this kid was like leaning over in front of the deck the whole time, one accidental move with his leg, arms, head, he would have lost some body parts.

    Luckily as far as I know he was lucky and nothing happened.

    What? Thats the dumbest thing I ever heard of. You should of jumped out of your truck and handed the kid a trimmer ;)

    Peoples stupidity ceases to amaze me. Who the heck in their right mind would let a kid hang over the front of a z?

    some bumps nearly throw me out of the seat...that same bump would have turned into throwing the kid off and him being a bump
