He was walking beside it and pushing it one handed, instead of being behind it using two hands, there are two hand handles on the back of it.


    Before I could get the attention of his boss who was on a mower he slices off two of his toes right through his boots. I run over to him blood is everywhere, I had my phone called 911 and considered putting a tourniquet on him and decided to have him put pressure with a towel until they come. Finally his boss sees something going on and comes over.

    First thing he says is omg im out of business, I looked up at him and thought WTF.

    Later after his helper is enroute to hosp, he tells me he has no insurance anymore. I said what?? he had shown me his license and insurance disclosure when I hired him, but he let it lapse a year ago. He said if he sues me im done. I said not only done but you will pay his medical bills.

    Then he says, hes 28 and he smokes weed all day long every day and his brain is sizzled, I asked what the hell did you hire him, he says to do him a favor he lives down the block from me.

    Anyway ill wait a couple of days and call him and tell him not to bother coming back im getting someone else.
    Insurance or no he should be worker's comp. I once ran a weed whacker with a skill saw blade for about 5 minutes. What a stupid invention!

    This is why I have an umbrella insurance policy. It covers liability above what all of your other insurance policies cover (auto, house, etc). And it isn't very expensive for $1M coverage. I believe I pay less than $200 a year for it.
