    I was glad when the last week was over after dealing with Uncle HoneyBooBoo and her son, baby orca pig vomit. This week is not looking too promising so far...

    Here's the scenario, 2 stops right next to each other. I cut across the lawn after dropping box at 1st stop. Halfway across, dude comes out and this conversation ensued:
    Dude: Hey you're on the grass, we don't walk on the grass!
    Me: Sorry, I was just going to drop this package right next door.
    Dude: That's fine but you need to get off the grass.
    Me: No problem sir....(short pause) Wait, you folks don't walk on the grass?
    Dude: That's what I said.

    Me: How do you cut it?
    Dude: WE HIRE PEOPLE!

    Apparently the grass is greener on Dude's side of the yard since he hires people to levitate across his lawn.

    Honestly, it's his grass. If he tells you not to walk on it apologize and stop walking on it.

    I'd chalk it up to "some people are idiots" column and move on.

    I have a few customers that tell me not to walk on their grass and yes they have a walk path. You have to walk around instead of straight to the front door but l feel it's their property and I respect it.

    You should be using the walkway anyway. Take the path of least resistance.

    U should have either crawled or ran off it. That way you were "working as instructed".

    I'm not an idiot, obviously if I had known, I wouldn't have walked on it but now I do. This isn't a "what should I do" thread, I just wanted to share a funny story.

    Well in this particular case, the path of least resistance was the yard...until the guy interrupted my walking at brisk pace.
