    ... I couldn't remember if this one customer of mine had wanted services year-round or not but as I passed by it sure looked tall, so I thought I better cut it before they get mad.

    So then I'm about 2/3 or 3/4 ways through cutting and the husband comes out and like, what am I doing? Well I'm like this and that, and he walks back in to ask his wife, turns out they didn't want me to cut it year-round lol.

    Ok, so I said look, I'm already almost through here, if you don't mind I will finish cutting so it doesn't look half-done but then I'll pack up and leave so I'm not weedeating and stuff.

    He was cool, brought me a soda out.

    I have done way worse.

    I wrote down the wrong address and ended up cutting some yard on the other side of town.:rolleyes:

    haha yea everyone has done address mixup before. Went last week to check out a yard. Called the guy at work and have him the quote. I told him it was a little higher because of all the beds and the edging. Well tuesday I go out there to cut it and realize i did the estimate on 2007 instead of 2207. Went and cut the right house but the yard was mad small no sidewalk and two beds. Worked out good for me though. Got way more than I usually do for that size lot

    Worst I ever did was to cut one stripe up the side before I realized it was the wrong house. Left a card with an apology. Never heard from them so I guess they didn't mind.
