I have the greatest customers EVER! tell us what clients have given you??

I have had some wackos but i drop them mad quick..but for the most part I have really really nice down to earth good hearted people, Mabye its because i always go the extra mile for them without any thought of reward and I am always being given stuff!! mostly large amounts of food or an old push mower that dosnt work heh.. but this week was great!!!! I was given an old craftsman rider I think its a 36 inch I have no use for it but i can pull the engine and stick it on my 32 inch Exmark that just blew up!! and the mother of all gifts a DR brush mower with a 30 inch Snow blower attachment thats a 3000$ machine!!!! with only 34 hours!! I am very happy!!

Side note if anyone notices the missing rear glass im fabbing a electric roll down window for the back glass on one of my 250s going down the Highway feels AMAZING!!

anyhoo what have people given you

One of my customers of about 10 years gave me 5000 dollars for my daughter to start up a college fund. A year later and I still can't believe it, never saw it coming

I've got one that does that too. Exactly one

I do have a couple that give random stuff that they would otherwise be throwing away. Some decent scrap money has come from it.

A black eye? ... interesting.


Not a customer, but I have a standing invite to some islands in the South Pacific... but yeah, I would need travel money
