    I know everyone likes to talk about the big things, but what are some small things that annoy you when mowing.

    Two off the top of my head are; neighbors that don't string trim their side of the fence and cost you time, and bums who don't blow off their curb and rain washes their crap in front of your properties.

    What are some of yours?

    Can't stand it when people throw trash out the window into people's yard. And guess who has to pick it up

    Locked gates, or special mowing times due to pets.

    You have to edge and it's comes to clean then neighbors edge that hasn't been edged in years and you have to edge their sidewalk

    Toys, and bumpy spots. Like where there are little patches of grass and bare spots.

    - Dog poop. For god's sake clean up your yard.

    - I mow a property that has a huge walnut tree, and every year about this time it drops walnuts all over the place. I know it's just a matter of time before I roll an ankle.
