He called and asked if I could come and mow, I said I could in a 3 days (yesterday). He said that would be great if I could mow on monday. I got there and his lawn was mowed. I figured he had time and just decided to do it himself (he likes to, but doesn't have the time). Then that afternoon he texts me and says that they switched lawn services and thanks for what I had done for him this far. Please share your thoughts and your own stories of times when your customers cancelled without any sort of warning signs. I look forward to what everyone will post. This might end up with some funny stories...
Send him a bill for 50% charging him for the drive time for failing to notify you in a timely manner.
