Default Funny on the site moments?

I know there has been an occurrence where something funny has happened on the job site. I will share one in hopes of reading others.

One year me and my amigos were aerating lawns. As a common practice we would mark the irrigation heads to prevent puncturing with the aerator. Well there was this one day when we had a huge account. 3 acres + and my amigo was looking around for the irrigation head around the middle of the lawn. I hit manual run to that station and come to find out it was right below him as he was standing there.... Needless to say he was walking around with a clean a$$ all day. Pretty funny... idk maybe you had to see it for the full effect lol.

I was walking into the front yard of a clients home, but the gate snagged my shirt and it was torn off completely when I shut it, all within a split second.

I think four people in total died of laughter that day.

I miss that shirt.

I was mowing for a customer and she came out to talk ( as she always does, you have to luv the elderly customers ) as she approached me I shut down my zero turn and being a pro I went to leap off the front to meet her and my T-shirt caught the handle sending me head over heels off the front: I think she needed to go change out her depends when she stopped laughing......

Well I used to install phone systems and our service consultant was on site while we were cutting over a new system and a gentleman came into the conference room that worked for the company that we were installing phones for. Well he proceeds to give her a hard time (teasing) and she just looks at him and asks if he rode the short bus to school.

After he left about 10 minutes later she looked up his name on the phone list...

He was the vice president of the company.... LOL

Nothing. He was a good guy and could take some ribbing along with the rest of the crew. I have met some really down to earth CEO's on down and then there are always the exceptions. Met one guy that wanted service people to use the back door. He used to be an ambassador. Everyone was afraid of him. I always used the front door.
