I'm close behind you! Between the other gig's we have going, mowing is becoming more BS than it's worth.

Yet if you do try to mow them you get sh!t for leaving tracks. A lot of the calls are people that are at 5 & 6 days only too, but they have nationals fertilizing their lawns dumping the nitrogen so they're a foot tall after 3 days!
I have had three customers drop me for this exact reason. I figure if they drop me so soon they're more trouble than they're worth. One guy asked me if I could mow his lawn right after he called - in the middle of a thunder/lightning storm.

unbelievable people start to show their true colors. I have some customers that tell me to not come when it has rained and now their screaming at me because i haven't mowed their yards. I actually had one lady hang up on me because i haven`t came. And now some decent weather and it goes south as fast as it changed.
