    grass, read my post titled "tip of the day, and do you do windows", we got a couple bucks, some hot cocoa, and the opportunity to wash her windows. as far as your nutty customers guys, you know, i just hate to sound insensitive, but.........here's what i do: i look at everything as time spent=money. now take the pizza/hot cocoa lady for example, it does take a bit more time, but the way she tips , especially on extras, it's more than covered. i have another client same way, likes me to come in and chat at the end of the month for 10 min. it's not bad, we bad mouth the nieghbors, and get some laughs. but, they always tip $25-$40 on each check, so it's covered. but if it's not covered, i just go to my lawn list, and write "discontinue" next to thier name, and it's never given another thought.
