    With a mower, tissue pack or a steel cable. With a trimmer it goes to a fresh dog turd.

    I have never had it happen to me but hitting dog crappy with the trinkets is the worst. The worst thing I've ran over with a mower is a $100 bill. I took it to the bank and they gave me a new one.

    I ran over my wallet with a mower a few months ago. The bills survived, but the wallet and credit cards didn't do too well. I had to make a couple of calls and emails to credit card companies :rolleyes:

    I also ran over a yellow jacket nest in the ground with the mower and they were swarming when I came by for the next pass.

    Municipal water valve cap.

    Not just the 4" disk that is on top, but I flipped up the whole 4" flange that the cap/disk sits on.

    Cast iron, shattered it into a ton of pieces.

    The most annoying was a magazine in a shaggy lawn.

    I hit a similar one, but it was the rectangular cast iron lid...it actually tossed it about 4'.

    I expect this is going to be a good read, I have already got some good chuckles. I hope it keeps up.

    We have had a recent amphibian/reptile hatch in our area it seems like everytime I turn around there is a dead frog or gecko I just murdered and more than a few small snakes.
