    I received a call from my brother and he asked if i could come cleanup his leaves. He said that he would be paying someone and thought it would be nice to keep the money in the family. He has an apartment and his landlord did not cleanup so he would pay me and then collect from the landlord. He also said that there is not much to cleanup and that it should not take me that long. So if i want the job he is offering $10..................thats right just $10. A long pause was then ended with i am pretty busy with my paying customers and if i need the money i will be over. :dizzy:

    Always beware when working for or with family! I think their's a thin line between customers and family/favorers!!
