    You know you're a landscaper when....
    -you hear a lawn mower running and you can pretty much tell what type it is or kind.
    -you find yourself looking at the lawns that you drive by and not the road
    -the smell of gas oil diesel bar-chain oil and grass makes you turn your head and or puts you in a good mood
    -the tops of your fingers are white and the rest of your hands are tan. (tops of your fingers are griping the handles of the mowers and facing down....no sun)
    -you wear your work boots more than your regular shoes
    -the inside of your truck looks like a recycling center

    lets hear em!!!!!

    ...the smell of grass puts you in the mood more than your wife's perfume
    ...your evening shower consists of 10 minutes worth of scrubbing the green out of your leg hairs
    ...your wife needs to plant shrubs and put down mulch at your house since you don't have the time

    When you go to a candle store with your wife and you purchase the scent "fresh cut grass" for your office....

    When you put on a pair of sandles at night and from your boot line down looks like you still have socks on....

    When you fall asleep from exhaustion without showering and wake up and have to brush the grass clippings off your sheets.....

    When you have a date/occasion to attend and you run your truck through the car wash, remembering to remove your magnets at the last minute....

    When you are a guest at someone's home and you offer to mow thier lawn, excited to show them how well you can make an edge with a regular trimmer...

    When you scrub your hands after work, go home and take a 45 minute shower, get dressed for a night out and realize your hands still smell like triple shredded dark mulch....
