Do any of you have clients that seem to never pickup from "Fido" when he does is duties on the lawn. I hate it when that dung gets all stuck in my mower's tire tread when I mow. It smells so bad. most of my clients pick it up before I show up but, a few just leave it.

We have several accounts that we have to mow through it. i don't walk much there though.

I did but then they dropped me because I was charging $90 a month for 2 cuts instead of $60 because of all the sh!t I ran into.:dizzy: Don't care though.

I have one customer that doesnt clean up at all. This is his first year with us and he will be getting charged more next year. I thought he would get the hint to pick up after the dog when I decided to mow around it whenever I came to it.

Charge more and use their hose to clean out your tires and leave the mess in the yard

That's the truth!!!!;) ;)
I've been known to scape it off and leave it piled in the yard.:rolleyes:

I heard a story from my friend who actually did a Fall Clean Up and was using a Backpack going thru a large pile of leaves. He smelled something stinky, looked down for a second and the pile of doo-doo came and hit him right in the face. Talk about a "SH*T*Y" Day! lol

I love it when your flying back to the truck after mowing on your rider and pieces fly off your tires. Or when you get back in the truck and have to check your shoes cuz somone stepped in it.

Oh yea, it's nasty alright. Especially in the dead heat of summer and fresh. (insert puke emoticon) I've got a customer with a golden retriever that leaves some pretty good sized ones. One time I slung it up against the side of the house and it stuck....for a second...then plopped down right where I was going to have to trim. I skipped that spot until the next week when it had dried up.

We had one customer who have 5 damn dogs that crapped everywhere. It was small property and I always would mow it, the alternative was trimming it ansd having it splatter on you. Anyway, I was tired of holding my breath for 3 minutes at a time so we dropped them.
