    Let's have some fun here. What is the wildest thing that you have seen while working on a job. Maybe it was something that a neighbor was doing. Maybe is was something the homeowener was doing.... their pet or ?

    we do pool service as well
    a few winters ago we were opening up a indoor pool for the day. it is in a greenhouse like glass building.

    it was super cold out (for here), about 20 some degrees. there was a fog inside the poolhouse so thick you could not see 3 feet.
    we opened the door and heard some noise. we kept quiet and started wakling the perimeter of the pool. we came up on 2 people in the jacuzzi-- naked--.
    turned out they were both female. they jumped up and ran for the other door, that we had not unlocked yet. they then ran a lap around the pool and ran out the door... without thier bikini's or clothes.
    they very quickly came running back in asking if we could hand them thier clothes. thier hands were busy trying to cover up (remember they were in a 105 deg hot tub then ran out into mid 20's naked and wet.
    talk about goose bumbs.........
    as they were getting dressed they pleaded with us not to tell anyone, if thier husbands found out they would freak.......'

    well, I was mowing this lawn a few years back and happen to look up and saw 3 or 4 college aged girls next door getting out of the pool naked!!, and climbing up this latter to go down a slide. it was a high end neiborhood. they happen to see me and they started waving at me. I waved back and turned my mower around looked down at the lawn the rest of the time. didn't want to expain this one to the misses.......... :D :D :D :blush:

    A few years ago we were North bound on I 69 between Indy and Anderson. It was raining and a semi had over turned in the south bound lanes near the Cumberland rd over pass. Well traffic was backed up all the way to the Pendleton exit. Thats almost ten miles I think. People were getting out of there cars in the pouring down rain.
    They were climbing up on the concrete bearers that the road construction crews were using to make one side of the four lanes for traffic while they worked on the other two. Trying to see what was going on I guess. Then I saw the strangest thing I have ever seen on the road. On the side of the highway that was closed were tennis teams at least two maybe three different schools going by there clothes. Out in the rain ..pared up in groups of four...playing tennis in the pouring down rain. There must have been twenty people standing there watching.....in the pouring down rain. Not something you see every day on the interstate high way.

    I was driving once and came upon some guys that i used to work with when i was not self employed. They were driving a 97 F Super Duty dump truck and had hit a deer. Well the deer flipped around the front of the truck to the drivers side and its back hoofs had gone through the drivers side window and sliced open the drivers head. Pretty cool.

    I was mowing a customers back yard and noticed a high school aged girl jumping on a trampoline next door (no kidding)...

    I could see her only on the up bounce... she smiled at me and then pulled her shirt up to flash me! I nearly ran my mower into a tree!!!

    Heres the kicker...she was my buddies daughter! She didnt know that I knew her daddy!!!

    Talk about an awkward moment...

    About 10 years ago I used to cut with a 36" Bobcat. After finishing up the front yard I moved out into the back yard and then to the pool area. I opened the gate to find the teenage son sitting in a chair slumped over with a pistol lying next to him. He took his life and unfortunately I was the first to find him.

    Wish they made Worktunes back then. It would have helped my mind out for the next three weeks.

    My turn:

    While cutting a yard at an apartment complex I watched a nice looking college student walk slap dab into a brick wall while watching us cut the grass.

    I have had the customer open the door to pay me with no cloths on and she was the best damn look'n 50 year old I have ever seen to this day.

    We had an elder lady (90+) ask one of the workers if Viagra really worked. He was bent over working on a irrigation pump and stood up and almost knocked himself out on the power meter.

    I have had a nice young women ask if I would teach her how to be a (Dixie) Chopper Pilot.

    More to come later....
