What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?

How do you feel when approaching your first lawn of the day?

What are you thinking, when you notice a client walk outside while you are working?

How do you feel when loading up the trailer, having once completed your last lawn for the day?

What do you do once you get home?

What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?
I wish I slept more. I can't believe how many things I have to do in order to get ready... Shower, change, have coffee, brush teeth, pick up guy, load trailer... all over again.

How do you feel when approaching your first lawn of the day?
So it begins. Sigh...

What are you thinking, when you notice a client walk outside while you are working?
Oh for f'sakes, please leave me alone, and get out of my way! I don't want to talk, ever, disappear!!!

How do you feel when loading up the trailer, having once completed your last lawn for the day?
Victory! I am God.

What do you do once you get home?
Shower... lie in bed with the laptop until bedtime. LOL.

[quote=CHEESE2009;112745]What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?

How many yards do I have today? Can I sleep 1 more hour and still get them done on time?

How do you feel when approaching your first lawn of the day?

F*** me
What are you thinking, when you notice a client walk outside while you are working?

Maybe I can upsell this cheap A** on something

How do you feel when loading up the trailer, having once completed your last lawn for the day?

I dont have a trailer so I think how bad my back hurts from loading this mower back into the bed of the truck for the 10th time today

What do you do once you get home?


Listen to complaints about how lazy I am

What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?
Not much thinking in the morning, I just bounce off of things until I make it out to the truck.

How do you feel when approaching your first lawn of the day?
I enjoy working in the morning. It seems like the first one after lunch is the hardest one for me to get through.

What are you thinking, when you notice a client walk outside while you are working?
Its usually to hand me money, so I am ok with it. ( unless it is hot, then I pretty much hate everybody)

What do you do once you get home?
Shower & find the nearest couch.

What is your first thought when waking up in the morning?
F**K i got soooo much s**t to do!! wish i prepared better last night!

How do you feel when approaching your first lawn of the day?
Wake up F**KERS! Time for me to wage war on your lawn!!! ARRG!

What are you thinking, when you notice a client walk outside while you are working?
It's either good or bad. Either they're coming to hand me money(good) or to chit chat and ask if i can help them move something!! (bad)I can usually tell by what customer i'm dealing with.

How do you feel when loading up the trailer, having once completed your last lawn for the day?
I'm DONE!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! oh crap i forgot i still have to gas up, check oils, charge battery, tarp trailer, unpack cooler, wash out water cooler, call tomorrows customers & breath.

What do you do once you get home?
All of the above, plus smoke, shower and eat something. then black out only to do it all again at 530 tomorrow morning. haha

Yup definitely should have gone with morning sex because this 70 year old looks cute in her robe.

Being on the trailer makes me feel like I should ask the wife for morning sex on the trailer sometime.

I should have sharpened blades last night so I could have slept in a few extra minutes this morning instead of having to sharpen them.

I honestly do not mind, they all have good things to say or ask if i could do something for them. Most know it will cost them extra, they're just letting me know they need it done. It's like every bad aspect of a customer was in that one chick that skipped out on paying and abandoned her home and everyone else is nice.

Sharpen blades so I can sleep in, do a rain dance, clean up the garage, go in and let the dog tackle me, kiss the wife, take a shower, eat, do paperwork if needed then whatever is on the agenda for the night.
