    I doubt he was doing this as a Job. It looks like he was moving the Grill and cutting his mom's grass...

    I dunno, just my opinion/

    saw a 4x8 trailer hooked to a scion the other day with a brand new crapsman trimmer, 21, and lt 3000 tractor. I think he maxed his sears charge card to buy all that stuff.

    Now thats funny....because you can always tell when someone was approved for credit at home cheapo...they look like a rolling bill board. I am not hating, because I guess you have to start somewhere.

    I saw someone a week ago riding a bike pulling a mower behind him. A week before that I saw someone pulling a simular trailer with an escort, the car. Its getting bad.

    Last week i saw a conversion van with a trailer similar to a boat trailer with a rider and push mower, blower and trimmer on it. He was parked at a gas station. mowing account must be so far away that he has to sleep in the van.:laugh:

    not to long ago i saw a truck pulling this really little rinky dink trailer with a Craftsman mower on it. trailer has no sides and only a rope tied to the front axles which was tied to a board on the front of the trailer. When the driver took off when the light turned green the mower rolled back and forth. thought it was gonna fall of in the middle of the intersection.

    I've seen many other, wish i had the camera in easy reach more often.:dizzy:

    a few weeks ago i was at one of my maintenance acount doing some landscaping. It was a saturday and i i cut the lawn during the week. While i was working a older guy pulls up to the neighbor's next door and pulls out his 21" mower, trimmer and blower out of the back of his pickup and does the whole lawn. Chopped the grass to like 2" look like it was shaved.

    Then a kid drives up to the house across the street and starts beating this rinky dink mower thru tall overgrown grass. dumb thing keeps stalling out on him.

    Then another kid pulls up to the other house across the street and starts mowing. After each section he cut he then raked up all the clippings. While he was doing the front and stopped t do something on his cell phone and this guy who i've seen before in the area driving an old plugger of a run down pickup truck pulls up beside the lawn and asks the kid if he was alset or needed a hand. The kid told him he was fine and the guy took of, I think he is a lowballer trying to jack work off of other guy because i've seen him before and he just looks like one.

    All that in about 4 hours. I never knew what happened in a neighborhood on a day that i'm not usually there.:laugh:
