Favorite customer?

There's been a lot of posts about crazy customers the last few days. Let's get some positive thoughts going to start the season, who's your favorite customer and why?

Mine is a family friend of my girlfriend's. He's from Greece originally. For anyone that watches the office, he talks exactly like Michael Scott's Greek character "mikonos". He's awesome, always has beer for us at the end of the day when were doing a project, and always makes me laugh. He's hilarious. Hard working guy too, he's loaded, owns a painting business and still works 6 days a week, side by side with his employees. He appreciates us, and treats us well. The good ones make up for the PITA's.

Unfortunately I'm losing my favorite customer this year since he is getting to the point where he can mow his lawn again. He had some kind of surgery a couple years ago and it caused him so much pain that he couldn't be very active but he says he's finally overcoming that. He's probably late fifties but a great guy, super nice, never complained and always gave me extra work if I needed it. I looked forward to mowing his 2 acre yard for the last two years and normally made it my last one of the day because something about it was just relaxing to me.

All though the stories previously mentioned are remarkable. Mine our simply the ones that pay without delay and leave me alone. If you want someone to talk to about your marriage. Hire a therapist.

exactly. to be honest my favorite ones are the people i've never even met or i never see. a check just shows up in the mail. one guy lives out of state and pays me 2 months at a time in advance. pretty sweet deal there.

i do have a couple that i chat with when i mow their yard. they are nice and all but sometimes they get long winded.
