    The other day this lady asked us to haul away this bag of yard debris for her. She had just handed me a check for $450 and the job took only 5 man hours so I was rather happy to do it for her. When my foreman got to the yard debris dump he called me and said, "You know what was inside that bag of leaves??? A BED PAN BOTTLE!!! FULL OF PEE!" ICK! He said he noticed it fall out on the ground as he was emptying the bag.

    That's definitely the worst thing we've ever found in the leaves. I still get chills just thinking about how gross that is.....

    Nothing really crazy, but I have a couple of customers who border a golf course. This time of year I find golf balls by the dozen under the leaves in their yards. I also uncover many snakes under leaves.

    ruined a chain on my saw the other day .
    they just left a strand of chainlink out under the pine needles. talk about trying to kill somebody . if id hit that with the mower it would have sent some deadly missles.

    We have to hope that the item in question was left as a joke if not I would be scared. I am scared anyway as a matter of fact!
