    While finishing trimming on your 6 acre customer, the customer comes out with his garden tractor, mower deck as low as possible (with bent antiscalp wheel mounts) towing a trailer to pull out weeds (read trees growing in the bushes) and the DECK SPINNING THE ENTIRE TIME :cry:

    I had to double check my deck , as I walked back to do the trimming I saw really low cut grass, thought I accidentally dropped the deck to the ground, then saw him cutting across the stripes with clippings flying. :hammerhead:

    LOL....up-date on my first post on this thread...

    I was talking about dog poop and 1ft deep holes in lawns, one customer decides to kill two birds with one stone so to speak....She is picking up the dog poop and now also filling up the holes in the yard............."Yeah"....you guessed it....she is filling up the holes with the dog poop......Now if I step in the hole, I'll be ankle deep in dog $hit....

    I guess I need to watch what I ask for....

    I have no problem with people leaving hoses out in the lawn. To me it means they care enough about their lawn to water it. I just move it aside or coil it up for them...not a problem and one of the reasons I walk lawns before I fire up my mowers.

    i hate the awesome looking college girls sunbathing in the lawn when you come to mow for two reasons

    1. they act like you are the devil for interupting their tanning session
    2. i cant hit on them anymore
