    Well this was a first for me today. I was mowing an apartment complex today. I was in one part of the complex and thought I heard someone yelling. I looked around and then saw a lady up above me yelling from her window. She was chewing me out, up one side and down the other because I was apparently mowing on her day off. She said that it was her only day off and she wanted to sleep. So, she told me to shut my mower off and go away. Yea, right!!! I told her that if I had to check with everyone's schedule around there, I would never be mowing. Well that made her even more aggravated, so she threw a rug at me. I couldn't believe it. I was glad that it wasn't anything that would have actually hurt. I wanted to say a few more things but, I changed my mind and went back to mowing. I told my employee to watch when he went to weed eat over there, because a crazy lady may through something at you. He got lucky because she decided just to scream at him. Boy, what a day.

    Too bad you didn't accidently shred her rug into a billion pieces in front of her eyes!

    People are weird, they only can see #1 and not the ":big picture".

    The world always revolves around certain people! ;)

    you should have located her car and conveniently placed grass clippings all around it. that would teach her.

    Yeah complex's are a pain in the butt. You have 1000 ppl to satisfy instead of only one.

    Just smile and wave at her, this will make her more upset just by not arguing. Its sometimes fun to play with peoples minds. :D
