I think you will have to learn from this experience and remain resolved to be a bit more detailed on pricing or tell them you'll do it by the hour. I've made some pricingmistakes before by jumping the gun or doing more because I believed they would probably want it done but alot of people are so rude when it comes to service workers, and that's what we are, no matter how successful we are. Be smarter than them and you will succeed.

If your client is as confused by your pricing as I am,you probably won't work there again.If you are charging $60/ hr as it seems by your post and you had 4 hours in it(is that crew hours or single man hours?) the cleanup cost $240.
Then you are charging $250/hr for vacuuming(as you first stated-1hr of
vacuuming and $250 extra).I think I will move to your market-I can "lowball"
and put you out of business! THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS SET AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE CLIENT AND WORK IT OUT FACE TO FACE!

As funny as it would be to see someone dump the leaves back at someones property..I would have to say dont. In most parts of the country that would actually be considered Vandalism.

If you didnt have a written agreement dont even bother goin to the cops, its not a crime if you cant prove you were intitled to the $$$ for the services.

Chock it up to a lesson learned and move on.
