If it was an F250 with an open trailer, it was me. If it was an extended cab Chevy, it wasn't me

We have all 3 crews down in Robinson area on Mondays. Since it's so far from the shop, we all go on the same day in case somebody needs a hand or has a failure, 2 other crews are there to pick up the slack.

I just want to tell those people to ride with me to pick up the amount of mulch they say I can't fit into the truck while I fill it again...and they have to pay for as much as I can put in it on top of what they already got.

A list of worthless, slacker or lying, stealing employees wouldn't be bad either.

Two of the owner's sons live down around Robinson actually. The one takes home the '08 extended cab Ford almost every day.

I have a really short route though...CVS in Crafton, then the CVS at 60 and Beaver Grade, then an HOA on a back street by the 60/79 interchange. Pleasantview Estates, if you've ever seen it.

I did it to be nice because I care about my work but it bothered me to half ass it and to know that it'll be full of weeds this week. Then he told me he used 5 yards of mulch when I was figuring on 10 to 15 yards. So I did 5. He wanted it less than an inch thick (being a previous landscaper he should have known that this is not the way to do it). I was still short and convinced him to go with 2 more yards. Needless to say that still wasn't enough. So I told him I would be over in 2 weeks when I was mulching again and finish the half of a yard I needed in the back corner. He said it was ok and the next day I get a call asking in I was coming that day to finish mulching. I was fed up with him so I went over then next day and did it. the whole time he kept saying I don't think you can get 5 yards of mulch on your truck. I don't believe you. So needless to say I will be avoiding him from now on. And I learned a lesson. Don't cut people a break and go above and beyond because they expect everything for free. And I think the angies list for customers would be a great idea. I was actually thinking about making something like that.

Do the work at your price and on your terms as long as they agree to it as well. Sounds like you got screwed on that one, it happens man. There's always more work out there to do!

Could we have any better work day than today? Dry turf early this morning, brisk, dry all day, some breeze, sun & clouds, ... what else?

I even started out with a sweatshirt, and ended this evening with a sweatshirt.

I heard that. Today was definitely one of the nicest days to be working outside.

Absolutely gorgeous... I love days like today. Nice and cool in the morning and warms up just right into the 70's. Some sun and some clouds, perfection!
