    People who think my life revolves around mowing their lawn every 2 weeks (like I have nothing else on).
    Everybody is entitled to MY opinion

    I guess if you have had them a while ie 3+ years, then yea ..your life basically does revolve around doing their lawn. While their paying, their schedule stays 'slotted'

    Especially at this time of year, when they just expect you to drop everything, as if they are your only customer. The most annoying are the occasionals who ring you and want something done, good fill in's normally but at this time of year it "you didnt support me, you wait in the queue"

    Hasn't he been on the run for 7 years already?

    I reckon Impala could hunt him down, a can of fuel and a stihl chainsaw would have him found in no time!

    I know that area really well. Just south of Walcha were I went to High School. We used to hunt pigs down there all the time. Some of the most rugged country I have seen and heavily forested. If he can live off the land he could stay in there for years and not get caught. There is plenty of tucker and water there and some parts of that area probably has never seen mankind. Tough job finding a bloke that does not want to be found in that country. This area is my fallback area if Australia was ever going to get overrun by another country.

    Exactly, I had this one guy who I never got any work out of during the dry season but when we got the first rains of the wet season he would ring me up and want me to come and mow straight away and he wanted special treatment, then I would have to waste my time chasing him up for money. I told him I will be putting the price up and from now on I want the money up front (no dough - no mow) I haven't heard from him yet this wet season.

    Yeah well, I blame Bear Grylls (Man Vs Wild) he is the one who shows people how to survive in the wild so it's all his fault.

    Not sure I've post in this thread yet but today was a fu(king challenge!

    Cranky with kids for procastinating, cranky with wife for not helping with kids, pull out of driveway indicators not working (real pita negotiating traffic for 20km with out them), try to fix indicators and blow 3 other fuses doing diagnosis, now I have no indicators, no radio and no abs and really cranky, weave my way through traffic to first job and smash the window beside a glass sliding door, (good news clients accepted liability as per my original quote), finally discover cause of blown indicator fuse is the trailer connection on the car, go to second job and realize I have left invoice book and days run list at home, buy replacement trailer connections (2nd set in as many years) and re-wire the first one twice cause I forgot to put sealer and nut onto wires first, go to third job all good but too windy to spray lawn next door that should of been done two weeks ago, forth job good and thinking beauty all the crap is over for the day, go to do a quote but as I didn't have pen or anything I didn't ask client which suburb, turn up at wrong address and start sussing out the property only to be tapped on the shoulder by an elderly lady asking if I need help...rang client back and left message advising will go to the correct address in different suburb 2morro then discovered there are 3 streets with the same name in 3 suburbs I work in and I had letter box dropped them all. It's got to be in the stars or something cause I hope that it for sh!t this week!
