    Grass clippings on truck

    We have assigned parking at work. Where Iíve been parking the lawn company gets grass clippings all over the front of my truck. Am I being too anal about this or should I say something?

    I would definitely say something. Either to your company or whoever is cutting grass. At my job the people next door cut there grass and they blow it on cars in the parking lot. Well a customers car was there to get wrapped and they at some point had broke a window with a rock because they were getting grass towards cars. So i would definitely make them aware so they can be more aware of what there doing. I would have said something as soon as i saw it. No need to be rude or mean to them just make it known. They may not really be paying attention and donít know there doing it that bad.

    IMO:
    You should not have to put up with this kind of
    shenanigans: The Lawn Companyís employees
    should know how to service lawns without broad-
    casting grass debris/clippings in some willy-nilly
    manneróeven in Commercial settings.


    Have your Companyís management,
    thatís in charge of the Lawn Companyís
    contract...Ďtake them to taskí.

    Itís not being anal. I donít know many non Autogeeks who want grass all over their cars either. If nothing is said it will just continue. People donít care about other peopleís property as Iíve learned myself time and again.

    Re: Grass clippings on truck

    Anyone how knows what they are doing when takeing care of the lawn clipping. Don't have the clipped grass outlet face to the parked vehicals or buildings or the streets next to the lawn. It's just common sense when haveing a job like this. Worked with this in my younger years and was always aware of where the clipped grass went. Don't know if it's called grass trimmer in english LOL. But when doing edges of the lawns or where the lawn mower don't reach. I put out cones so they could park a little longer from the edge. Or just did the trimming of the edges when the vehicals was not parked there. And even then was thinking about the rotation of the grass trimmer and how the grass was thrown from it.

    So i would definitely do something that reach the lawn care company. To let them know that's not acceptable to get grass flinged directly on your parked vehicals. If it's windy and the loose debris from the grass gets on to mostly the horizontall panels it's not much to do about. But if you get grass clipping on the vertical panels that's clings on is not acceptable to get.

    It's just so unecessary and ignorence from them who's doing this. And easy for them to correct the way they do the job to work for everyone.

    I get angry when I’m driving and people using blowers or cutting grass “aim” it into the street at passing cars. The rocks and dust churned up hit and cover my clean car. Why can’t people just aim back into the yard and save me from rewashing my car and save a possible broken window?

    One of my biggest pet peeves is this. I once had to stop and make a lady aware that she did it while i was passing and put a dent in my car from a rock blown out. It was a beater so i didnít really care but it was the point.

    Agreed.

    When I am using my leaf blower in front of my house, I will always throttle it down and point it away from the road when a car passes.

    How hard is it to do this??

    Bill nailed it. "People just don't care".
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
