jbungard1856 is on a distinguished road

So I took my good friend out to help me with mowing one day. He had been laid off from his office job. Never did any kind of outdoor work at all. I had him push mowing the customers front yard. I was standing talking to the customer and she asked why he was walking so funny. I signaled him to come over to us. When he got there I asked if everything was ok. He replied Yeah I know why I got stuck with the front yard, its full of goose turds. He said he couldnt even step around them there were so many.....Poor guy never seen an aerated yard before....Me and the customer had tears we laughed so hard

Me and my helper where doing a general go threw on a HOA. You know door to door down the line clean up trash, trim shrubs, pull weeds, ect. So I have one of those pony saws, dubble cut very sharp had saws. My helper is about 5 feet away with a headge trimmer trimming a shrub and we have our backs to each other. I 'm looking at this maple tree about 3-4 inch DBH and I think it needs a little corective prunning. Now this tree is not that big, only about 3-4 foot wide. I stick my head in the branches to see the branch pattern, I see the branch I want to remove, I raise the saw, and BAM! I get this instant sharp pain in my left arm, bee sting! As a jerk reaction I hit my left arm with my right hand. Only problem I still had the prunning saw in my right hand. The saw cuts my arm open, I fall to the ground in pian from the sting, blood squirting out my arm from the saw. I'm rooling around on the ground, cussing, bleeding, when my partner turns around and says what the hell are you doing?! He takes the rake and moves the branchs on this little tree and there it is, a bald face hornet nest! This nest is almost a third the with of the tree! We still laugh about that and I have the scars to prove it.
