It's buggy. Maybe they fix it with update

    Try the tasks after Whacking Day is over. There is a known issue with the Texan where his bull-riding task is cancelled when you crack an egg. However, there is also an issue when moving items (?) or hitting your inventory (?). (Question marks because I can't remember the exact cause.)

    I have that problem too...also happens with Louie and legs...it seems to happen when they are on their tasks and then I go into "baton" mode so what I've been doing is whacking all snakes first, then setting them up with their tasks

    The bug is with whacking eggs. If you crack an egg while the task is ongoing it will shut down and no payment. This happens with the Legs & Louie 1 hour combined task, and I believe the same for the task with Mr. Burns.

    If you bought the Rich Texan, it will cancel out the 12 hour task as well. When whacking day is gone, I'm assuming these issues will self resolve.

    I find it generally happens when I go into the 'move items mode' or 'whacking mode', least the 'whacking mode' is nearly over! Hopefully they fix the 'move mode' glitch soon!

    I don't think it's whacking eggs, I think they abort their tasks anytime you spend more than about 5 minutes in your town. That's been my experience, anyway.

    a simple solution is to do everything else in ur town until these glitchy task are literally the only thing left. start them then immediately exit your town

    I tried it out recently. I always use 12 hour tasks daily, so I put the Texan to ride the mechanical bull. I went into edit mode and moved things. He was still doing the task. I then hit a misc snake I found slithering around. Went back and he was still riding. Exited out. Re-entered and he was still at it. Then later on, I received eggs. Broke a single egg, and he was walking around.

    From having to do the 1 hour Legs/Louie quest later than most (I had 0 cash at the time of the update) I was getting tons more eggs then and had trouble with the quest until I let my game sit the hour and clear the task before clearing any snakes/eggs.
