    I have learned and it is honestly very difficult for me to do but in situations similar to this kindly smile and say nothing I mean nothing the silent treatment... The thing that any attorney that might ever represent you wants you to do whether you are as innocent as a newborn or as guilty as Manson... Say absolutely nothing. And go on about your biz.

    This is true. But......

    Technically Manson never killed anyone. Infact he wasn't even at the scene of the crimes.

    Can't agree more.

    As the comedian Ron White said, "I had the right to remain silent, but did not have the willpower to use it."

    Keep in mind with the wrong nozzle and PSI 10 mph wind can still have major drift potential so be careful.

    I have had similar experiences, most memorable was when I was told I was poisoning the earth, funny thing was I was using an organic fertilizer at the time.

    I did a blanket app couple months ago, neighbor comes out with garden hose and immediately starts watering down the area before I even load up. I took one look at him, went about my business, loaded up, drove off. Not one word said. Reapplied another day.

    Quite comfortable at the 7mph I was spraying in, with my GL ride on at about 13" from the ground. VC droplets. There was no drift.

    Do I understand this right, the neighbor watered down the yard you did which was not his?

    He wanted to make sure that whatever was put down would immediately run into the local aquifer and/or waterway.

    Yep. Bizarre. The guy washed the product right off his neighbors yard! It's a side yard not really adjacent to my customers house but definitely my customers property, I mow it also. He was real casual about it too.
    I kind of had this twilight zone feeling driving off lol.
