Now, I do not care a bit how often he wants his grass cut, that's up to him. But PLEASE. Pick one and stick with it!! Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do about it?

One more thing - what do you guys do about customers that don't pay? I don't use contracts so I cant go through court and the lady will not talk to me at all. I am out a total of about $325. Is there anything I can do about it?
I won't cut for anyone who want it less than once per week. The only customers I've ever had problems with as far as bad checks and what not were the bi-weekly ones when I started.

Here's another gem of advice, have all your customers prepay. Why whould you finance their property maintenance interest free?
