    Do any of you have clients that seem to never pickup from "Fido" when he does is duties on the lawn. I hate it when that dung gets all stuck in my mower's tire tread when I mow. It smells so bad. most of my clients pick it up before I show up but, a few just leave it.

    I did but then they dropped me because I was charging $90 a month for 2 cuts instead of $60 because of all the sh!t I ran into.:dizzy: Don't care though.

    I have one customer that doesnt clean up at all. This is his first year with us and he will be getting charged more next year. I thought he would get the hint to pick up after the dog when I decided to mow around it whenever I came to it.

    Charge more and use their hose to clean out your tires and leave the mess in the yard

    Its better hitting with the mower than hitting it with the trimmer!

    I heard a story from my friend who actually did a Fall Clean Up and was using a Backpack going thru a large pile of leaves. He smelled something stinky, looked down for a second and the pile of doo-doo came and hit him right in the face. Talk about a "SH*T*Y" Day! lol
