    I've got a hard head, but I hate people that plant stuff all over the yard. I keep telling them that is what beds are for.

    I hate birdfeeders and such(lights, birdhouses, yard junk / art...) hanging from low tree limbs. Last week , I got about 1/2 of a hummingbird feeder spilled down my back when I hit it when mowing. Nice to be sticky and a bee magnet for the rest of the day..

    People who have a bed that's 4 feet wide, and insist on planting their flowers RIGHT AT THE EDGE of the grass piss me off soooo much!

    I got a good one...customer (woman) decides to run a clothes line from the side of her house to a tree across the yard. Ready for this? The best part is it's 5 and 1/2 feet off the ground (I'm 6'1") running a WB with a velke and the frigging line is dark GREEN! I was inches away from it when I saw it at the last moment nearly getting decapitated.

    i hate low branches on trees, esp on my new rider.

    rod, one time this winter i nearly got decapitated while snowmobiling, the county closed the trail with orange snow fence, held up by a rope between two trees, however the weight of the snow ripped the fence down, but left the rope. i was doing about 45-50 when i saw it litterally a half second before i hit it (luckily in the daylight!). i managed to duck down below the windsheild, i got clipped in the shoulders and got friction burns from it on the windsheild and my shoulders, but my head is still on luckily. i stopped and just sat there shaking for a moment after it happened and then went back and cut the rope down so no one else would do it later that night.

    I've got a customer with bird feeders all over. I don't mind them so much, but she leaves empty hooks for more hanging up all the time I catch myself on! That deserves some sense slapped into them!:blob2:

    one time I nailed a canoe that the cutomer left at about 5'5".
    never saw it coming, it was just high enough that I could not see it and then it was wham.
