I will be working a 24 hour shift at the fire station. My guys wanted the week end off, I can't blame them. We will catch up during the week.
Take some time to spend with the family. Life is short, enjoy your kids while they are too.

I never do residential cutting on weekends or holidays because that is when they are home and full of extra odd jobs and/or complaints!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not Holidays!

Hello:

We never worked holidays, be afraid customers would terminate my contract. we worked mainly worked Mon. thru Fri. 8:00 to 5:00 sometimes 6:00 if we absolutly had to. I don't think anybody paying for your service wants to hear your equipment running to early or to late. Much less weekends or holidays.

Customers in most all circumstances do not want you there before 8:00 or after 5:00 Mon. thru Fri. it's only common sense. Yes, I worked a few Saturdays but very few. I always called & asked before going over first.

If you can't make it Mon. thru Fri. I would think something is bad wrong. You start working over 8 hours a day 5 days a week you just wearing down your self & employees. Quality drops & what is family doing while you are gone all the time. Ask yourself this is it worth it. Money is not worth it.

If I worked a continual 6 or 7 days a week for several years cutting grass I would be living in half a million dollar home instead of quarter of a million but I don't need that much.

Family first, then customers. This is just my thoughts & mine only. I could be wrong?
