    When your helper wants to go home at 4 because you said that's the time we'll leave, then the time comes and you state that you didn't specify whether it would be 4 or 4:45.

    When you've created competition overtime by having people help you, then they quit and think they can do it themselves.

    When you get angry at your helpers for soaking down with the customers hose because it's hot. It's still unprofessional. Lol

    .... Keep em coming. These are great especially the peeing on customers walls. I try not to put my self in that situation but from time to time I find my self having to do so. Helpers are the worse.
    It takes at least two steps to be 3 steps ahead!

        Cutting grass is easy, getting out of the truck is hard work!

          Agree 1,000000000000000%! My helper seems to think he gets unlimited sick days. He called out yesterday, then begs not to get fired.

          When a dirt front yard makes you happy. Less mowing.

            You get mad when you go out of your way to cut grass, but the grass hasn't grown at all.... Yet, approaching a lawn with grass that has grown also makes you mad...

            .... Everything makes you mad.

                When you avoid a 'clingy' client, and get caught having to explain yourself - you become the master of lying and persuasion.

                Client: How come I couldn't get a hold of you?!

                Me: OH I'M TERRIBLY SORRY! My brother had gone on a trip, and I wanted for him to take my phone so that he can contact the family... That way we can sleep at night knowing he's ok! ... I'm terribly sorry for that, but he doesn't have a phone of his own.

                Client: Oh, well that's very good of you!

                Me: Well I'm sorry for the inconvenience. If ever there is an emergency, you can use the email that's on our contract to contact me!

                -

                AFTER I FINISHED MOWING

                Client: Do you have a number of a guy who can cut down trees?

                Me: Yes!

                Client: I have a pen, can you just write it down for me?

                Me: I don't know the number by heart, I have to get my (about to say phone) BOOK from the truck.

                ... close one...

                      You have bruises on your right knee from banging it against the trailer, trying to hop over the hitch point of your truck.

                            You have gone through a drive through with the trailer still attached.

                                I don't follow...

                                Are you talking a fast food drive through, or a drive through beer distributor? (We don't have many of those here)
