    Edging the gutter side with a whippy and a car decides to pull up and park right alongside me as I’m edging. Gets out and she says. “Sorry”

    I says, any chance you could have parked 1 house down or 1 house up. The whole side of the f ****ing street was vacant and it decides to pull up where I’m working...! FAAAARRRRKKKKKK.!

    Hope it was sticky long green wet grass! Sorry!! Some people just need to be asked in different ways. Probably won't park there next time.
    I'm sure you as a professional mowing man has much skill in using a whippy but sometimes when the grass is long and wet it needs to be really hammered. The results! Well I think we have all been there at some stage

    I stopped and went did the backyard and by the time I came back out front, she’d gone. I did have the urge tho to continue and spray her car but couldn’t bring myself to do it....

    Reminds me of the time I was mowing the middle house on a street with no cars on it and a guy pulled up in a BMW talking on his phone anyway second time passing his car the window winds down so I stopped and he says can't you see I'm on the phone I looked at him (I've been told I have a very expressive face at times like this ) and said no worries mate do you want me to move the lawn 2 houses down so the noise won't be a problem for you oh sorry I don't seem to be able to move it for some reason perhaps you could move your car instead and started mowing again I may have also shifted the mower into 1st gear,he moved his car
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you
