    With Memorial Day coming up, do you guys work or not. If so, would you cut a condominium complex or residential. I don't want to piss anyone off, but I don't want to get behind either. In the past, I've cut parks or commercial properties, but those accounts don't fall on Monday this year. Any input would be helpful.

    Everyone wil be home in a condo complex, I'm sure they don't want to hear a loud mower on their holiday. If the weather forcast looks good for the rest of the week, take a day off, i"m sure you deserve it.
  3. We won't be working, just rest and relaxation.

    I only do residential now so no, not on holidays. When I used to do commercial, I would always cut on holidays to get them out of the way and not get behind.

    I don't think I would do any resedential accounts on a Holiday. Commercials I wouldn't worry about.

    If you can catch up and take the day off, do so. If you can't, then do what you gotta do!
