Coppers turned up and booked her for careless driving they didnt even speak to me.

    'Cormorant' no it was a 'shag' [may of been]or was it a 'blackbird' perhaps a bit of 'thrush', looked like a 'great tit' with a bit of 'swallow' ended up with a 'redshank', wasnt a 'humming bird' though liked nectar

    Well the saying is 'if it's got wheels or tits it will cost money' putting them both together is a bad combination .

    Car aerials, when they park up in the way and go off walking in full knowledge that I'm there trimming.

    Also broke the lid of a septic tank and was lucky not to get stuck in it. It was in the middle of long grass in a golf course and no one thought to tell me about it.

    Barb wire is not good when you see it rapidly coming up the hedge towards you as the rotor pulls it in.

    Re: 101 things to damage with a hedgecutter!

    [QUOTE=JohnDeere8530;127431]was cutting a hedge when I was about 17 for my girlfriends dad in their garden and showing off a bit like you do then when in a tractor. Decided to take matters into my own hands and found another hedge that could do with a tweak. Went to cut the top far side of that hedge without looking the other side, only to find out that I put a nice crease all down one side of the roof of Sarahs mothers new car with the hydraulic motor. [the head was angled down at the time 45degrees to make the hedge into point in the centre]


    I was so embarrassed afterwards as the father was livid with me, he was pacing up and down screaming. I didnt know whether to laugh it off or leave a bit sharpish, so I chose the latter. That relationship with his daughter needless to say didnt last long afterwards, shame, she was fit as. I'm sure he never did like me from the outset so guess things were doomed from the start. Still she's married to a school teacher now, so guess she lays in bed at night thinking what could of been QUOTE] Yes probably what a lucky escape she had.
