Next door neighbor is trying to buy the house from a room mate that is going bankrupt. Anyway he catches me in the garage the other day and wants me to ID some weeds in back lawn & give suggestions on other problems.
:rolleyes: didnt want to do any work but figured I could send him right direction. Worst problem was milo, told him it probably came from my birdfeeders :blush:
So all done and he says do you want this ginness stout left over from party and nobody here will drink it

3-6 packs!! That 18 milkshakes!!

good beer though; had a couple of newcastles with a cust. a while back.

It's not a good practice; but if they are offering, they arn't frowning at you either.

Always looking forward to them. I'm a suker for a good chocolate chip cookie.:blush: A beer would be good to. don't know if I could choke down a Guiness right after mowing, they are pretty thick.LOL Marc

There's a reason it was left over from the party. :eek:
Just kidding. That's stuff is a good beer if you like that type. I guess I'm not refined enough for it.

Speaking of beer stories... This was funny...

When I first started my business I had 2 employees. One was kind of flaky and showed up when it was convenient for him. The other one was a great friend who worked very hard. I told these guys to always be friendly to the customers, no matter the situation.

It was late July - very hot, and I usually went off and did detail work in my truck, and sent these 2 guys off in another to mow. The one truck was in the garage, and the other guy didn't show up, so it was just me and my friend mowing.

I had to go and bid 2 jobs and do a hedge trimming job, so I dropped him off with the trailer and walk behinds at our best customer's house around 2 pm. It's a pretty big place with lots of detail work.

I figured I'd be back in an hour or so. Got held up. Three hours later I arrive. He is sitting on the walk behind in the customers drive way, the customer standing next to him. As I walk up the long winding driveway, I see something sitting next to the walk behind. I get closer and realize there are 7 or 8 Rolling Rock bottles (empty) on the ground. He has a smile from ear to ear on his face as he continues to chug a beer with my customer.

I realized we wouldn't be working any more that day. I stayed for a few minutes and chatted with the client, we loaded up and got in the truck. Friday, 95 degree heat, several beers... I knew the day was over.

He looked to me and smiled....

"Hey Boss, I was doing what you said. He offered me a beer. I figured it would be impolite to say no."

Had to laugh....
