    You know its leaf cleanup season when you keep thinking the phone is ringing, then realize its just your ears ringing.

    When you go into the corner store to buy a cup of coffee and everyone looks at you like you just stepped out of a smoke stack, and you smell like it too.

    When you start cursing at the wind.

    You wanna hear something crazy though, I actually don't mind the leaves. Its great money, the lawns look great right now, and the townships around hear have curbside pickup. Hang in there, Winter is almost here.

    when you are working about a half mile from the truck, are sure you have plenty of gas in the tank, and all of a sudden it dies....you first say s---...then you remember that the vac system drains it a whole lot faster....happened about 3 hours ago...what an idiot I am

    You know its clean-up time when your leaf pile is bigger than your brush pile at your dump site.


    You know its clean-up time when you accidentally catch your leaf pile on fire with your truck exhaust at your dump site backing up on the pile because you don't want to push the pile up with the Bobcat cause it hasen't been above 45 in a week.:D

    You know you've been doing fall cleanups when you blow your nose, and it looks like you've been snorting tobacco spit.

    You know you've been doing fall cleanups when you fart dust.:D
