First my trailer jack fails and the trailer ends up on the ground. Got that up and hooked it to my truck then my front end on my truck goes. Now two of my four mowers are in the shop. One the part is back ordered. I have to use my Bronco to pull my little trailer so I can't use my 52" Sentar. I never took care of my 32" mower that has been sitting in my trailer for a year and a half last time I tried to start it no luck so tommorow morning I have to try and get that running to cut some lawns. I want to scream!!!! When it rains it POURS!!!! I am on the verge of shutting down!

I know how you feel
Kind of like being GOD's personal punching bag.
Good news is he will get tired of hitting you soon enough and things will look better.

I feel like anything bad that can happen, is happening and it's just building up.
I still have no voice from shouting the other day. It's a violent season for sure.

My mother called me the today concerned, told me to "make some friends your too angry, all you do is work". Mothers are always right... I just don't like anyone off this forum. At least we can all somewhat relate to certain issues.

I'm nearing the point of making a stupid irrational decision about selling the business, I'm that stressed out.

Now that we have entered a new day, are there any reflections on all these issues that popped up?

What's the best way to deal with things when we feel everything at one moment is falling apart?

My reflection is I used my back up mower I got it running with a few shots of starter fluid. Filled the tires. Cut two lawns and on the third it caught a flat tire! Wtf is next! I MEAN REALLY MURPHY'S LAW IN FULL SWING. TIME TO PACK UP AND CALL IT A DAY!

I know what you guys are talking about. It seems like everything is breaking constantly this year. A big hole tore open in the bottom of my steel catcher of my commercial toro. My honda mower will only run on choke this week. Have to take a John Deere riding mower to do jobs til i weld the catcher and it doesnt fit thru any gates. so Im stressed because every lawn is taking longer than suppose to. Lights broke on the trailer. Handle on the wheel barrow broke with full load of bricks. Theres more from this week to...
Just wanted to let you know you not alone this week. lol

I do hope everyone was able to overcome these obstacles and push forwards to continue onwards.

Well Mother Nature is blessing us with about 6-7 days straight of rain factor in 2 (hopefully no more) Days to dry out. I won't be able to start mowing till next Monday. The grass around here is already tall. Argh. Hopefully by then the part needed thats back ordered for one mower will be in and on by then. My little push Toro Recycler is up and running. My back up mower has the belt back on and the tire filled. I am going to the yard tom to see if it held air. The truck well one place told me 3k to fix it. I am going for another for an estimate this week. Thankfully I have the time thanks to the rain for another estimate. When it rains it pours LITERALLY TOO! Thank God. I hate thinking how tall the grass will get after all this rain and almost 2 wks unable to cut it.....tack on another 30 minutes at each site emptying the bagger. Argh. Hope everyone else is fairing better. I was ready to quit on Friday you have no Idea.
