A twelve-year-old named Reggie, in Maple Heights, Ohio, decided to be industrious and start Mr. Reggie's Lawn Cutting Service. He and his siblings and some cousins went knocking on doors and got clients who wanted their lawns mowed.

Reggie was out working for one when he and his mower strayed onto the neighbour's connected lawn (there's apparently no boundary line, hedges, nothing) and cut a foot or so stretch of their grass. So, obviously, they called 911.

"They said I was cutting their grass. I didn't know it!" Reggie said.

His customer, Lucille Holt, said she was confused when she saw police, but quickly learned the next-door neighbors called to complain that the group was in their yard and had cut about a foot onto their property.

"They said the kids cut their grass," Holt said.

Reggie said the police said nothing to him and the kids. He finished the job and felt a little discouraged.

"I was like, that's a shame. I didn't know," Reggie said.
The cops came, talked to the neighbour and the woman who hired Reggie, and didn't bother the hard-working kids, because fucking seriously?

The woman who'd hired them was incensed, and posted the whole thing, including a video of the cops coming, to fb. Upside, Reggie now has a lot of requests for his services.


Reggie said he's trying to save the money he earns to buy new equipment and grow his business.

"Just give me a call. I will be there. On time!" He said.
