Ok, so I have a customer that lives across the street from a large fire house in my town. Been cutting it for seven years with never a problem. Well I show up this morning and there is a mower swallowing tire rut in the lawn. So I get out and look at the rut. It's about 14" deep and about 12" wide. About 7 feet long. (How heavy is a fire truck? Like a billion pounds) I notice a young fire fighter standing near the entrance of the fire house. So I walk over and ask if he knew anything about the rut. He SNAPPED!!!! Starts yelling that he protects this town and BLAH BLAH BLAH. So I ask if the fire chief is around and he said he would be back in ten minutes. I said that I could wait. So I start cutting and the fire chief shows up. I see him walking towards me so I meet him half way. So much nicer and much more pleasant. He said that one of the new guys mis judged a little. We both laughed. He even said that a couple of the guys on his crew didn't want to admit to the damage. I bit my tongue. He asked if I could fix the problem and than directly submit the bill to the fire house in his name. I said that it would not be necessary. It was only a few bags of dirt and some seed. He was a little taken back. I asked if instead of money payment, could I have a ride on the truck. I have never been in a fire truck and have always wanted to pull the horn chain. He smiled and said it would be his pleasure. We have a time set for Sunday. He is even going to give me a tour of the fire house. I CAN'T WAIT!!!! I feel like a little school kid. Sorry for the long post. I re post after the ride.
