Poo, what poo? I didn't see a thing... I try to not even look at unless i know it's going to be close to where my foot is going, or the trimmer line . The only poo i pick up is the lucky pile that gets smeared around with my mower tire. lol

Just had to add my .02. You're welcome

"Ruin there lawn"???? They're leaving dog **** in the yard for crying out loud!!!!
They're not only being rude (because they know you're coming), but they're being pigs for leaving it there in the first place.

Yardman, I think that's funny that you use THIER hose to clean it off your equipment. LOL!

Buuuut, I will say that you should probably talk with them and see if you can avoid it altogether.

Been there, done that. As a negotiated part of a full service seasonal contract. Didn't do it myself, done by employees. No-one ever quit or complained (much) but one customer always found something we missed. I don't know what he was feeding those dogs, I'd see a doctor if mine was like that. Picked it up w/ a shovel and buried it in a hole dug in his shrub beds

Did a spring cleanup last week where the grass was so tall that nobody could have found the poo from the owner's dog prior to cutting. There was plenty of poo, too.

No, I didn't clean it up from the yard as I am not a Zoo Keeper. (Don't get me wrong, I love my own dogs and clean up after them at home.) I did, however, have to hose down my equipment before it had "stuff" petrified to it.

Again, there is probably no blanket solution for this issue, but we'll most all have to deal with it from time to time. Hey, we could be working office jobs that we don't like, right?

hmmm ... when i shoveled most my neighbors drives, and many more at 7, wouldn't i gain knowledge of communicating with people? That is something that seems to have slipped your grasp. Along with the know-how on doing business with people ( don't wash your mower with their hose)

Something that obviously eluded you also our ability to argue constructively (don't call names, and make fun of mama) You need to show some maturity, and professionalism. Neither one has been displayed here, or from the sounds of it, with your clients.

Don't get jealous because your mad at yourself for making someone else rich for 14 years, and i was smart enough not to make that move. Don't worry, you'll be a professional some day. Keep trying. Have a nice!
