    after tommorow, i am done for the week. i'm sure though, i will have a few nutjobs calling, "what is going on, you missed my lawn this week." ya, ok, take your pill lady. as of tommorow afternoon, the recording on my answering machine will say, "due to the drought, we will be closed until at least monday 9-19. call back, at this time." is there anything wrong with THAT?

    It's reasonable, but why don't you do as many as possible and skip the dry lawns? Especially do the nut-jobs tomorrow, then they won't call!

    I show up -- hell or highwater -- until the customer CALLS me and says 'don't come.' You people who casually excuse yourselves from work simply because the grass isn't growing are burning easy money left and right.

    well i do have a few that i could skip, and have. but i also have a few that i have on contract. so i have to show every week to keep on top of weeds and blow everthing off. etc etc. plus this gives us a chance to finish up some lose ends and a landscape job or 2
