    Well, my customer calls me up a little bit ago, says "Mark theres an emergency, come over right away" so i go over, and i walk in, and ask what the problem is, he proceeds to tell me he went to Frankenmuth for a few days, and then hands me a box full of deserts!

    I have some really great customers this year, only a few pitas, but the majority of them are great, loyal, pay on time, and always do extra things for me as I do the same for them. I sent everyone an xa-mas card and whatnot, and alot have responded for me to do their snow and next years lawn and/or landscape work next year.

    Also, who else has awsome customers like this who always treat them more then just the average Joe who has a mower. When I say treat us good, i mean tipping alot, and often (because of good quality work, not because prices are to low), paying on time, loyal, reccommending you to their freinds and family, and again, always wanting more services.

    Anyway, I'm in an excellent mood, and this made my day, that my customers do care and think about us outside of their house. So I figured i'd share with you guys my good expierences with customers this year, and wondering who else has simular expierences and if so what did they recive becides money. Has anyone recived sex? lol, thats kind of inapropriate, but Im sure those horny house wives have given their lco's something becides cookies and money.

    EVERYONE have an excellent NEW YEARS, DO NOT Drink and DRIVE, Be SAFE and Buckle UP! Tis' the Season, lets make sure everyones year ends on a good note!!!!

    One customer gave me $100 and another some sweets and homemade trail mix. Some others just have me come over and do a little misc work to keep me busy.

    I think you mean he gave you some DESSERTS.

    Desserts are much more yummy than Deserts are. :D :D :D

    LOL! That's exactly what I was thinking! When I first read the title, I was thinking that he was given a bunch of sites that were bare with no grass.

    Launboy,
    What Frankenmuth is, is a town that is all Bavarian authenticity. It is a beautiful place with many shops, Inns, and restaurants. They have festivals and such all the time. There is a place there called Bronner's. What they are, are a giant store that is all Christmas 365 days a year. They have every type of Christmas decoration you could imagine. You can purchase one of the many "themed" trees that are made up with different themes (they have aLOT).

    We have some good customers, one customer gave us $200 for Christmas and her neighbor (we also cut her lawn) gave us two large boxes of chocolates and $50 bucks. These two are our best customers: they always pay on time, very nice people who always complement us on what good work we do.

    Wow, you just described Leavenworth, WA to a T - Christmas Ornament store and all. I didn't know there was another village like Leavenworth in the US. Does it snow in Frankenmuth? What state is it it? We go up to Leavenworth every December, just before Christmas. It's always an amazing time. Feels just like you stepped into a Christmas story book.
