    mowing a customers property this evening.......he was in the back yard, bbquing chicken. i came around the corner of the house, blowing off the walkway, redmax going full blast, as i turn the corner...oops, blew grass and dirt all over his chicken. he got mad, "what are you doing? can't you watch what you are doing?" i said, "yo, i got a piece of equipment going full blast, and headphones on. didn't you hear me comming? you should have put the top down on the grill. now get outta my way, i got chit to do." some people got nerve. what would you have said?

    You said you were ther in the evening correct? Then you are wrong you shouldn't be there late in the evenings when clients are home trying to relax.
    I'd say if it was past 5:30 or so and it wasn't your usual toime to service i'd definitely say it's your fault

    I think you already know but let me take a stab at it. You are. You are the operator so you are responsible. You have not only the knowledge of the equipment, but the understanding of it's misuse. He's simply an inocent, chicken toting, bbq sauce painting, grill tending american. What's he know about blowers?

    Though, I can't say that my response (at least initially) would have been any different then yours. I might have said something like, "Hey, what do use Masterpiece? I would'nt serve that stuff to a farmers pigs. Dude, you gotta switch brands! You're lucky I saved you before you ate it!"
