    Another employee hit me from behind with a toro walk behind as I was turning around and my steel toe boot saved my feet .

    Got 3rd degree burns on my wrists from the muffler and a busted foot but I survived and finished the work day.

    Hmm, I've hit a stump, wrecked the hydraulic lift on the tractor, I didn't see the stump, it was one of those little ones.
    I hit a toilet seat (don't ask)
    Last week I ran over a coiled up THICK dog chain, wrapped around 2 of the 3 blades, stopped the engine right away, that was fun.
    Some baby bunnies.

    Mow around a few apple trees and you will have plenty of apple sauce.
    Getting borred while mowing a 20 acre lot, I decided to go to the middle and mow in a circle to the right. Made around 50-60 passes with a 60" kept me entertained a little longer.
    Stay away from stirofoam with a weed eater, they are everywhere in a cemetery.
    Boss hit a dog chain, guy lets his dogs crap all over a lot that is next to his. He didn't want to help pay for repairs. Now Boss blows the chit all back to the guys car and home.
    I never hit many things, I am sure ditch mowing would be a good time with all that may be out there.
    You all keep me laughing, THANK YOU !!
    The full diaper would suck !!
    The school window is a very scary story.
    I will keep my eyes open !!!
