    NO FREAKIN WAY!!! And I had a lady who got mad because I didnt mow over her leaky septic system (a different kind of Poo)--I felt like telling her to mow over her own crap....but simply said "Im just not going to mow over that until it's fixed"

    But as far as dog poo...I have one customer that has a ton of it...I just charge her more money and tell her why.

    I have one customer that requested it. It takes all of three minutes and I charge them an extra $10.00 on top of the cut. I have a dog so it does not bother me.

    I mean, ya gotta figure roughly 10 bucks for a few more minutes of your time aint bad. Then the neighbors find out you do the poo and they give you a call, and its all on your route anyways.

    I dont mulch....Ive always preferred to side discharge S***. Its not our jobs to clean it up...and it's pretty disrespectful when the customer doesnt get it up.
