    it'll get better.

    now at least you know the importance of making sure your stuff is secure. and nobody got hurt and is suing you, right?

    Dejavu. This happened to 1 of our teams a few weeks back. They had the trimmer bungeed down instead of in the trap and there she went. First good bump. It happens to us all and always sucks! There is an upside to this though. It's $550 in tax write-off's.

    Nobody died. Nobody got hurt. You're not being sued. And the saw can be replaced. Take a deep breath.......feel that?....you're still alive! You had an okay day. Tomorrow will be better!:weightlifter:

    Sorry for your accident. If your learn this lesson and your biggest loss in this business is $ 550.00, count yourself as blessed.

    Really, that saw could have flown through somebodies car windshield and spun that car out of control hitting a bunch of Girlscouts picking up trash on side of the road. Girls went flying through the air and landed on a bunch of nuns with their top down on their way to do missionary work. Didn't happen! Now don't you feel better?

    Must've been one helluva a bump to kick a pole saw out of the back of a truck........................

    Or was this saw sitting on top of a pile of debris above the truck bed???

    I think we know the answer.......:hammerhead:
