well, another one of these, "can you cut my grass" , but it's covered with leaves arguments. i quit grasscutting at her house. it was mid october, the leaves were falling, and i don't pick up leaves for the price of a grasscut. i asked her if she needed leaf removal, she said no. ok, see ya. she calls like 3 weeks ago, "i need you to cut my grass again." ok, i go over there, i run the machine over it, weedwack, leave a horrible mess, and start packing up. she's just pulling in from the store. i'm just leaving. she sees the mess, " what is this?" of course i charge her like a rabid pitbull, "this is your grasscut. i hope you like it." "no, no, i need this mess cleaned up." i say, " WELL, THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU ASKED FOR! you asked for the grass to be cut, it's cut! if you wanted a cleanup, you SHOULDA ASKED FOR A CLEANUP. it's alot more money, i'm not a mind reader you know!!!" she says, in a shaky voice, "please clean the leaves?' i say, "ok, but, now i have to unload again, i'm charging for a grasscut, AND a cleanup." i proceed. while i'm in the backyard, she comes out with a box, with a big red ribbon on it. i say, "what's this?" she says, "it's for you." i say, "is it ticking?" she says, "no, it's a xmas gift for you." i say, "well, leave it on the picnic table, i'll take it when i leave. thank you very very much." and there is my HAPPY story for the day

That was a beautiful story.

I never had a client wrap anything for me, but I got pizza for lunch once. :)

My guess would have been it was a brand new, shiny shovel with a big red bow tied on the end LOL.

Did the sweet little old lady change the pit bulls heart from one of stone, with her thoughful Xmas gift? More importantly, did she PAY FULL PRICE for the cleanup! :)

Mike, Not to be an @ss but did you have to ask that??? You know ol Bobby said "Ok lady cut the cr@p pay me and let me get home i've got drinkin to do"
J/K w/ Ya Bobby your a good guy in my book.

What would have been hilarious if the woman stuck a little note in the wallet that said, "Bite me Bobby!"

tideman ya got mine beat by a longshot. LOL

i actually got mad about the gift. i mean, why do they have to put me in the position of having to try and be nice to them? i'd prefer if we keep a professional relationship, you know, with me being the boss. damn right she paid full price for the cleanup, and the grasscut too.

Probably paid double the price to fill the new wallet faster. :)

She must have known you've been bad this year, and knows that Santa won't be visiting your house. She figured you might as well get one gift. ;)
