    On break at college today saw something funny. was eating lunch near my truck and trailer ( toyota 4x4, 12' gate trailer, 52" bunton hydro.)

    Guy with a new ford power stroke and a 16' tandem with a 48" gear drive (seen this guy around campus for awhile,) Stops beside my truck looking. he starts talking to his buddy and they start laffing?

    I guess my little rig looked like a joke to them. But I can not figure out why you would need a powerstroke and tandem trailer to haul a walkbehind ( the only machine I have seen him with for about 4-5 weeks.)

    Oh yea it had ramps in the back of his truck, no gate on trailer.

    Just thought it was funny.

    He's the big, bad guy with the walk behind, - don't you know? And don't think for a minute that he's paying for that truck with that walk-behind, because he's NOT. Also, what does he have a helper for, to do his trimming and then stand there and watch him mow for 20 minutes? If you ever see this guy, you can tell tell him I said so.

    It makes no difference to me if someone makes fun of me. I make enough to pay my bills and tuition.

    I just thought it was funny, driving that big rig to pull a mower smaller and liter than mine. Plus I bet I can be backed out or turned around and on my way before he can get his rig started.

    i get all kinds of dirty looks with my overloaded snowmobile trailer and 91 Grand Marquis!

    I smile because I know someday my rig(s) will be just as nice, if not nicer, and PAID FOR WITH CASH.

    I wonder if he would have looked funny getting yanked out of his window? ;)

    We all can't start out with big equipment.

    As long as your accounts look better than theirs, who gives a flip?
