This is a guy that mows for the state. I got a call to help him. I didn't expect this.





I just jumped on and drove it to the bottom.

I don't think he fell off. He is just stupid. They have been mowing that ditch line with those type of mowers for 20+ years. I have never heard of somebody doing this.

He is just a de de deee.

??? I guess he was soo dumb he couldn't figure out how to get out of that? it's like not even stuck???? is he related to 2 penny jenny hence why he is on the state payroll.

on the other hand, a comp cut, coilovers and some 60's would have fixed it from doing that.

The guy standing there is the one who put it in that predicament. My left nut has a higher IQ than he does.

When I pulled up I just started cracking up. He didn't think it was that funny but I kept laughing.

If he makes $27/hour, that is about $17/hour too much for him. He has taken over as the one who costs the state the most money in equipment damages. The one he passed retired at Christmas.

How big was this guy? The only reason I ask is because I worked for Toro doing tilt table testing. They are rated for 205 lbs on the seat at a 40 degree incline even though they tell people don't go past 15 degrees.

Hahaha . Well, could be, but I wasn't there when he did this. I was called to help him.

I would nickname him "Ding, fries are done." You could call him Ding for short.

It's more fun to put the side deck mowers up on two wheels that the County uses. Even with all the wheel weights they were up on 2 or 3 wheels more than they touched the ground.

Here is another situation I just got back from having to extract a mower from mud.

Now, if the ground is bare dirt, has recently been worked in, (they buried cables) and it has rained a lot, wouldn't you think, just maybe it might be soft and you shouldn't drive in it?

Nope! Guess not.



in accordance with the prophecy. (see this thread.)
