This post brought up a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Why on Earth can't people understand to NOT walk by the yard when I'm working? People like to just walk through the middle of a yard, down the sidewalk, whatever, even though I am operating a machine with three very fast spinning blades that could kill them. They are too damned lazy to cross the street, walk around, whatever. And then they have the NERVE to give me a dirty look because my work is holding up their oh-so-important life. I swear, one time I was edging and a woman pushing a baby carriage came walking right through past me, not a care in the world. HELLO! Damned Stupid People! ARGH!!! And don't get me started on kids coming out of the house to watch me mow. I've dropped customers in the middle of mowing their yards because they refuse to bring their kids in. Don't parents teach their kids to stay away from that stuff? The absolute worst was the time I came around the corner of a house, just finished blowing, and some woman has her kid bouncing around on my trailer next to the lawnmower I just put back with an extremely hot muffler. WHAT THE HELL! People have a lot of nerve and are just too damned stupid when it comes to safety around lawn mowers. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!
