    Your check comes back "insufficient funds" and you have to ask the bank whether that was on you or them.

    The neighborhood kids start charging less than the "professional" (let's just say) immigrant crews to mow my lawn.

    The economy is really bad when you have businessmen wearing suits applying for a kennel attendant job (cleaning cages, giving dogs and cats baths, walking dogs, ect) *they must have been really desperate to find a job to apply for this job, *what i do*

    When you have to go through 16 people showing up for work after being hired with experience only to ask them what zero turn mower they want at the first job only to find out that the only landscape experience they have was mowing grandmas lawn! Yep 16 of them all had no idea how to run a mower this summer after me hiring them with years of supposed experience!
