    so we were working at this ladies house today and she was in our way the whole time, b*tchen and whining about this & that. "ooo those hedges arn't even(when where not even done with them yet) , ahh there too round blah blah blah. THEN she thought that she could do a better job so she took one of the hedge trimmers from one of our guys & attempted to use it, but couldent figure out how (godbless those safeties) before me and another guy grabbed it. Once she took the trimmer I lost it totally, we grabbed it and told her to stay back then about 5 min later she just told us to leave & she would finish it herself. This lady is crazy!!!

    You have got to stop taking work from Bobbyged. I have never had a customer do crazie stuff like that but I have had their neighbors do some crazy things. I had a old lady once run out infront of my brothers cause we where on the side walk infront of where she lived. She blocked the sidewalk with her body and yeld at them not to go on her side walk, or she would call the cops. I was in back when this was happening so I didnt get a chance to tell this lady to eff off. I told my father that night ( a cop) he just laughed and told me to tell her to call the cops next time so she would get in trouble for harrassing us.
