    I was doing some work for my gas station rep job, I am kneeling down messing with some product near the ground, when I see a $100. bill being handed to me. I look up and it is this customer that owed me money from last season! Of all places for him to run into me? He lost the house and I dont mow for him now, but it was a nice surprise! I never expected to hear from him again! Nice to know there are still some honest folks out there! He couldve just as easily avoided me and never paid me.

    Yeah that's super cool, especially from someone who apparently lost everything,
    bill like that I wouldn't have even wanted to collect but that's really nice.

    I also got some checks like around March from last year :p
    It sure helped, way things have been with the economy I just wasn't going after any of it,
    I kept thinking what if my chasing after my money they lose their house?

    Makes me feel a lot better about the state of humanity in ways.

    Yeah, I even stopped calling him back in October, guess he is on track again, but he is living in an apartment, so I doubt I will ever mow for him again.

    Now that is a good day! You must have the eyes of a hawk to spot that money in the intersection!
