    Maybe we need to come up with some sort of Olympic event where the competitors see how far they can sling an object from their mowers.

    I am so lucky, and I don't know how I got this lucky. I spend a lot of time at industrial accounts, but none of my residential properties have young children. And only one has a dog. How lucky can one get? I wouldn't walk away, but I would talk to them and tell them this isn't part of your normal mowing charge. See what you can work out.
    I had a lady that owned an antique store ask me to price mowing the grounds. They have a fenced in area with a lot of items for sale. She wanted it all moved and everything mowed lol...I mean I need to go take a pic of this stuff. It's not a super huge area, but still, moving about 40 items from left to right, then moving it all back..THEN do the right side the same way. I could probably have serviced the entire place in about 45 mins minus the merchandise. But I bet it would be at least 45 mins of moving things back and forth in addition to mowing...No thanks lol.. I just told her I was scared I would sling something up with the mower and trimmer and break the precious antiques and I didn't want to be responsible

    Talking to the nannies is a waste of time. They don't want to fool with the toys either. The homeowner/parents are the ones to contact. Then, they put the screws to the nannies.

    I'd walk away just because it's a push mower yard.

    Push mow yards are the majority of his properties.

    maybe hide all the toys in the woods where they can't find them? that way they can't leave them in the yard anymore. it's not stealing so it's legal.
