    Trust me, you are not the only one. However, I do find that as I get older, I actually screw up less as I've learned to go over mental checklists that at least cover the most important things.

    Of course, I still occasionally do something stupid, like loading the mower then realizing I forgot to mow the portion of the property on the other side of the parking lot. :) That was just a couple of weeks ago.

    I hate that. This is something that seems to happen at least once a month. I'm done, loaded and strapped down and all. Then look over and see a 50x200ft area I missed. This only happens when I've fallen behind a few hrs.

    who drives 30 miles to a site only to realize you've left an important piece of equipment or brought the wrong equipment for the job...

    Is it me or is it uncanny that the mailman comes incredibly-timed so that my truck is in his way. I don't usually park in front of mailboxes if I can help it but occasionally there's a big patch of shade that I find irresistible or sometimes there's just no other option. Heck, we're only there 5 mins usually, but alas that 5 mins just happens to be when the mailman comes. What r the odds? they have to be extremely low but it seems to happen alot. I almost always get a dirty look too.

    Has had a hydro belt break on steep hill and rode it all the way to the bottom and not needed new undershorts.
