    Was out mowing and i swear i never felt the mower hit the tree. Tree fell on the cab and ended up laying on the driveshaft... It was just a truck, about 12" across, and very very rotted...

    So....last year you torched one of the bosses trucks. Today you have a Giant Sequoia fall on the roof of a tractor/mower. Hmmm.....(I just hope you weren't hurt?)

    If you would have had the flashers on,, the tree may have seen you in time, and went around.
    that dam tree was probably texting, and not watching where it was falling...

    Hope you weren't hurt.

    Scared the s**t out of me, but i didnt get hurt.. I just hear this SMASH and got sprayed with safety glass.

    I don't know about the tree, but i was NOT texting. When i'm mowing i have one hand on the steering wheel and one on the hyd controls. :p

    I was having a great day yesterday to until two of my guys starting arguing and bickering for several hours and turned a 6 hour day into an 11 hour day and did a horrible job.

    You need to hire me. I'd look good with my mirrored sunglasses, sitting in a small folding chair, with a 12 gauge shotgun laying across my lap while telling your workers to address me as "Yes, Boss"..... reminiscent of my favorite movie "Cool Hand Luke."

    He said he was mad about the tractor, but that can be fixed...

    That would be great.

    I did, I usually don't leave them by themselves but I figured out that I have teo guys that both want t be the boss so they just argue. I guess I need to either not leave the jobsite or give one of them a promotion.

    Are either qualified to be boss? I find those that want it most are usually least qualified.

    I always feel bad when people want to talk to me about being the boss. First off there's not much room for promotion, second it's titular, and third it's always the person that walks around with a chip on their shoulder like they don't want to be here.

    I will probably promote one of my guys when they stop trying to be the boss and learn to work together.

    That's the only place I'm not the boss, I'm cool with it though, she's far cuter than I.

    Has that progressed at all?

    By funny do you mean awesome?

    Does it affect the RPS when you take the top off?
