Odd request

Today I was mowing town houses and have to mow a nice brick house on acre lot that is a rental. I mow 22 properties for this company so I have to mow it. A new tenant recently moves in. Never a problem but he comes out today smoking weed offers some to us. We say no he offers beer and says he is having a party in a couple of weeks and said if I could stripe up a happy face on the hillside he would give me $50 and a case of beer. I said I would see what I can do. I'm gonna attempt a happy face so his party is a hit. It just blew my mind that he just came out smokin dope and offered it to anybody he doesn't know

Would have been funny if you were an off duty cop making some extra money.

Some people are real open with it. I have had people always want to give me beer knowing I need to drive

That's funny. I get offered a beer all the time but never weed.

If it was late in the day I might would have taken a toke or two.

Sounds like he could be just messing with you. But if not take the $. I would never drink w a customer as that is unprofessional.

But I did get tipped once in some green. Guy gave me a few buds. Said enjoy. Well too bad I didnt smoke.

40 years, 5 kids and 2 wives will change a man. I miss my youth at times. Most times though, I wouldn't go back for nothing. Young dumb and didn't know nothing about nothing.

Maybe you should alert the property manager. I'm sure they would be pleased to know they are renting to a pothead.

Must be some fine herb if he's walking out asking the lawn guy to mow smiley faces in the yard.

Well went to mow smiley face today and the guy came out and wanted me to mow a bullseye in front yard instead.


Looks decent I guess. I'm gonna mow it for the next couple of weeks so it darkens up. I need to climb trees or house to get good pic

This is only one of many reasons why I can't deal with commercial contracts.
Way I see things, if it isn't in the contract I'm not doing it.
One other thing, don't ask me to break the law.
