    ATTA-BOY!!

    It is good to hear isn't it. Makes you feel like maybe you're doing something right!! I love it when we get nice little notes in with payments - it makes it all worthwhile and cancels out the sucky days!!

    Good job!!

    Thats a morale booster. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Hope the rain stops but look at it this way, there are no watering restrictions.

    Makes your whole day to have someone apreciate your hard work and dedication. Usually try to throw in a couple of extra minutes of work for these clients because I have found that if they are nice enough to let me know that they appreciate my work they will probably let others know.

    That's great to hear Bobby, the news last night said that many areas of the east coast haven't recorded this much rain in 100 years. Glad to see your customers know just how good you are.
