    heres a good one - forgot to latch the trailer coupler before driving the mower up the ramp and i have the dent and foot long scratch in the new tailgate to prove it.
    I also agreed today to pay for window broken by rock from mower. Real nice Anderson double pain crank out with argon filling. it's all aluminum and you cannot replace just the glass. The mulch kit was on and I cant figure where the rock came from or how it made it all the way to the window.

    Oh yeah .. I forgot one.
    We just had just gotten the enclosed trailer .. my boss put up the tail gate (but did not latch it or lock it) so he could pee. I came back with the backpack, he took it, and forgot to lock the back. We drove to the next job .. when we got there he said 'did you put the tailgate down?" .. oops. Nothing was lost! The little rubber stoppers we GONE, but that's about it. Pretty funny after all is said and done. We're very lucky the DCs didn't fall out and get destroyed OR hurt someone.
