Exclamation You know you are a lawn maintenance professional when....

I expect all of you to add to this!


YOU KNOW YOU ARE A LAWN MAINTENANCE PROFESSIONAL WHEN....


"WHAT?" (shouted) becomes the most used word of your vocabulary.

The only clean socks you own, are the socks you bought today.

You're the gas stations most profitable client.

Speed bumps and potholes are your biggest threat.

You drive better with a trailer attached to your truck.

All of your most interesting stories are related to grass somehow.

You've trimmed an entire backyard, because getting the lawn mower for some reason seemed more tiring.

You don't remember what grass smells like anymore.

When stepping in dog poop does not piss you off as much as it did when you first started.

When you sharpen and change the mower blades as often if not more than you need to refuel your mowers.

When having a flat tire, is no big deal.

- when you keep on mowing when the customer is CLEARLY trying to get your attention .

- when your at the truck but dont string the trimmer because you can confidently trim with 1 half piece at half the speed.

- when your shoes have the faded green from the front on back and you don't care.

- when you just spent $20 on eye protection and you can't find a single pair .

- when you just left the gas station and realize you need gas .

- when the phrase .." hmm I think she doesn't need it this week" gets overused just because you dont want to get out of the truck &" you can't stand THAT F*ng yard.

- " babe just give me a minute..I worked so hard today " ( maybe 2 yards lol )

- when not at work and all a sudden a grey cloud swallows your right eye and you use everything in your possession to try and get it out.

- when you calmly do a discrete happy dance at the mailbox after receiving some long awaited checks.

- when you almost break up cuz your better half didn't wash your favorite pair of work jeans.

- when the trailer becomes your hockey stick and slap shots every trash can thats anywhere near the roadways.

- when you've just bull****ted a customer for 20 minutes and clearly didnt have a clue what you were talking about.

- you will do anything to get around taking off your boots.

- during the work day all females that are 3 & 4's have turned into 8 & 9's .

When you reverse search a phone number to find an address, before calling the caller back.


This is too funny!

When the sound of electric lawn equipment incites manic laughter.

When you seriously consider throwing herbicide onto deadbeat clients yard at night.

When you snicker when spraying herbicide on large weeds "HAHAHAHA! I am the plant GOD and you DIE"

When most of your costumers have nicknames that they can never find out about (they probably wouldn't be costumers for much longer)

When you decide you F'ing LOVE old people who have money and 5 minute attention span (less time wasted BS'ing).
