    Had to laugh yesterday when i heard Mick Malloy, comparing Warnies new mattress to a drop in pitch "he'd better bring his 'A' game cause i've heard she's prepared a bit of a green top"

    I rocked up to a newish job yesterday and started doing the trimming. The wife comes out and tells me not to do it, that she wants to mow on weekend etc, loves doing it, makes a day of it. It was just a big miss communication between her, her husband and I. (they want it fortnightly instead of weekly. no big deal)
    Anyway, shes very sorry that they didnt call and proceed to get me a six pack of beer and a cold drink. Im like, NO dont worry, I was only 1 min into it (besides the fact I had scheduled it) but she was insistent. I accepted of course! lol
    Not really a grumpy moment but relative to what you said.

    On another note. Got a call today from a guy who lives on a shared drive, body corp set up. He tells me hes lost his job and is going to take it over. I was gob smacked! He is going to get a surprise when it takes him 5hrs and bloody hard trimming work. Im expecting a call in a few weeks!

    Honestly who really gives a rats arse if he is porkin her. Whats the big deal. They are both has beens when you really look at it. Wouldn't mind betting they are both paying off the media to do it to revitalize their careers..if you could call them that.

    I would check with the Body Corp first. This bloke could just be throwing you off so he can get a leg in.
