    LOL....saw a guy blow thru the morning paper today, homeowner came out iiiiirrrraaattteeeeee, and it was funny, because none of the amigos really knew what she was saying.:confused: ....We were planting flowers across the street. It wasnt the first time, and from her words, I think it might be the last time once hubby gets home. Needless to say, I left a card on the door, with a note referencing the lawns we service near her. Always walk the property, or at least stop trying to mow like you are on the Indy 500.

    Don't feel bad, I sucked up a BIG rug the other day...
    Stupid, it was all dirty and I'm thinking the WB's breeze will clean it off, ooops dang it got sucked in.
    15-20 minutes cleaning up (dont forget the strings around the blades), $30 lost because no charge to the customer.

    Yeah you don't think of the mess until it happens, then it's like OMG...
    And you saw the newspaper but you figure it will be ok.
    Then you think it won't take that long to clean up, but it does.

    My best one thou was running over my own pitchfork with the Wb, and a tine wrapping itself around the blade and stripping the blade bolt, I ALMOST had to run home to get a spare bladebolt but I tacked it on and it held long enough to finish.

    Oh yeah, good times :laugh:
    Coat hangers and 120v extension cords / cable tv lines are fun, too.
