    What a PITA! I had one similar to that except they would at least leave the lock open and trust me to lock it back up when I was done. Had to give them an exact day, but not an exact time. What are these people so worried about locking up anyway? Not like it would be that hard to scale a fence if somebody really wanted in...

    I was just picking really.....if grass customers are like some of my accounting clients, they have the tendency to forget they are not my only client. For instance, April is the month payroll tax returns are due. I called this one client two weeks ago and reminded her. After another call, I finally get her information Monday. Just before lunch today, I get a call.....can I please pick up my returns today I need to be off tomorrow and the boss is off Friday....of course.....I accomodated her and got them out for her....but wanted to say something totally different.

    I have one client that I have to unlock the gate everytime, but he gave me a second key, so no problem . However, I would tell her if she doesn't trust you enough to give you the combination, you don't trust her enough to pay the bill at the end of the month.

    If you are late and miss her, are you expected to come back another day without any extra charge? IMO time to say good bye
