    My oldest customer is a 97 year old widow...she gives me homemade peanut brittle once a month. She's perfected it! LOL

    My customer let me borrow his wife for one night.

    Being serious I ended up going on a date twice in my 4 years in business that involved my customers. One was the daughter and the other was a single mother.

    I just got a $100 bonus along with the $30 payment for the last cut of the season today, so I thought I'd bump this thread!

    The handwritten note attached read:

    OakNut,
    Thank you for doing such a good job for me all summer.
    Here is a small bonus to express my appreciation.
    I'll call you about doing the leaves.
    Thanks again,
    Client



    Amazing. I don't even know what to say.
    I'll be sending a thank you card.

    A piece of glass from hitler's camp that got destroyed. An old lady customer had a bunch of stuff from it. Obviously from germany she was. They would go hiking in the hills and find stuff.

    Hahaha what are the odds :)

    I have one during the summer usually gives me water. I'm just happy I don't having any PITA, it's a heck of a lot less stressful. And everyone pays on time

    I got an old craftsman mower that only needed minor work and is still used as a spare today.
