    I got the weirdest call tonight. In a nutshell the guy was basically asking for a fall clean up since it was snowing today figure that it would be better to do.

    I am still confused about the phone call:dizzy:

    We had a one time leaf cleanup call four years ago on Dec. 22. We had already had 2 moderate snows, and it had just melted around the 20th. She was having company for Christmas, and wanted the property cleared.It was a half acre yard, covered 1 foot deep across most of the yard. When we left, she wrote a check for $3K, about 140.00 extra than the bill. She became a regular client until she moved last year.

    The latest that I have ever done a clean up was the 6th of December.

    Had a customer at my old job that would call frequently for skips, she kept calling weekly and leaving messages up until the middle of January :dizzy: Finally I called her back and told her we had stopped mowing 2 months ago...
