So I couldn't sleep at all last night because of my active mind... anyway.

You know how clients leave their hoses on the lawn, and when you go to move them the grass beneath the hose is DEAD?

Imagine if their was a way to keep the hose elevated, so that the hose never lies against the lawn.

Oh you know... I was sooo tired and decided to go to bed, and then my mind thought I didn't deserve to sleep - I got a full blast of questions running through my mind. Stupid brain...

We aren't going to work today because of it... When the boss is tired, everyone gets a day off. LOL

I was hoping it would rain, but obviously the forecast changed to sunny just to aggravate me.

Only one comment.

Their *** is so lazy now that they can not roll up the hose why would they take the time to put the stakes in the ground??? LOL

Plus they would probably trip over it...

They should make biodegradable hoses, so that every time they leave it out I can mow over it and it'll turn into compost.

They should do that with kids toys too, and lawn furniture.

Lol, If you ever come up with something and you are seriously thinking of acting on your idea, Don't make it public knowledge before getting it in patent pending status at-least.

I know or think you were joking about this hose idea. It wouldn't surprise me if someone saw this post and acted on it and made millions off of it. Lol

I have learned a lot by going through the process and I would be happy to share my knowledge with anyone that has questions on pursuing an idea to make it a reality.

Be prepared to loose many nights of sleep! Lol

LOL, I was actually going to start a thread to see if anyone else gets pissed off when clients leave water hoses across the lawn. I have one that the hose is right by the gate to the back yard so they take it through the gate but leave large coils of it outside the gate... it make such pretty patterns of dead grass there lol

LOL! I just picked up a hose yesterday that left a nice dead pattern in the lawn!

It's been bone-dry here, so people are leaving them out for flowers and such.
