    He got this new John Deere garden tractor the other day and now he tries to race me on my z master when I'm at home.

    I can edge trim and blow everything by the time he finishes mowing. We both have the exact same sized yards, I even have more gradens to trim.

    Next week I will bring out the little 32'' wb and still beat him.

    LMAO!! I love that about some people, maybe if he put some flame decals on it, he might go faster. lol

    This one house I mow the kid next door always seems to be waiting for me. He will start mowing right when I do but he never wins the race.

    One of my customers has 16 acres. He cuts 14 of them and I cut the 2 acres around the house. This year he went out and bought a brand new Kubota diesel ZTR to go along with his 15 foot bat wing mower. So I'm mowing along minding my own business and suddenly he appears right next to me. The race is on. So it's dude riding a brand new $15k mower vs. grassman with a mower he picked up used for $4500. Let's just say that he won't try that again.
