    but did you smell like "sparky's rear end"?;)
    is that serious, or temporary? I just really started wearing eye protection this year. but poop flingings i have no defense for.

    don't you hate it when that happens. I've done it twice and its not fun. yes you do smell like sparky's rear end until you take a shower. whats worse is when you hit a toad but that another story.

    I hit a Smirnoff Ice bottle with the t270 yesterday.It was under pressure and exploded when I hit it .I felt glass fly by my face( you know when you've been doing this for a while when you can close your eyes before something hits you..lol), and when I stopped to check for damage, there was a piece of glass on my cheek that was stuck there by sweat, not blood. It hit on a flat spot and just stuck. Close one...Had my share of "sparky piles" the other day.I just charge extra and keep on keepin' on...<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/16/16_2_7.gif' border=0></a>

    you lucky "dog":) , here they're "colt 45" and "old english" :eek: :eek: bottles. you're one the reasons i started wearing the eye protection, i never saw the radians before, i really liked the idea.

    seriously though, how do you charge for the poop? do you factor itinto the price> what if you "discover" it after, while your on the job? The grass i was cutting today was a cleanup. it was about 2 - 3' high. the dog actually crapped, and it wasn't on top, and wasn't on the floor...:confused: thick grass i'm telling you.

    Adam, it's in our agreements to pick it up and charge $ 35.00 per man hour to do so, but I never have. I just use the equipment cleaning fee clause in the agreement instead. Basically, when I get into too much dog doo, like when it gets in my tires or on me, I add a $ 10.00 eqip. cleaning fee, and use their hose to clean up before we leave as well. Isn't it fun finding a hidden pile hanging in tall grass like that? I knew exactly what you meant as soon as I read it..lol Just keep an eye open for it in the future or send in the amigo first..haha<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/1/1_4_127.gif' border=0></a>
