    I have this one customer "one of my Moms poker Buddy's" who always pays me in cash with a dr pepper and a 16oz bottle of water after every mow:) Just think how nice our jobs would be if every customer was like that:usflag:

    I have one customer who gives me a huge bottle of ice cold gatorade after every mow. She also pays on time and sends me an extra $50.00 around Christmas.

    She is good friends with Lou Pinella of the Cubs also. A buddy of mine who played baseball is a big fan of his so for his B-day she gave me an autographed baseball from Lou so I could give it to him.

    I have this customer that i"ve been doing every friday for about ten years each week he comes out with either soda for every one of the guys or a beer. The only problem i have with this is we do his house around 10:3o in the morning the the beer really is'nt my first choice.

    I got you all beat. This old guy passed away a few years ago but every week I would get $35.00 cash and one of those Hostess cherry pies and a box of Hostess Cosmic Brownies. I had 27 boxes at the end of the year. I could not possibly eat that much, so I always gave them away to all my friends who came over. I do miss that old man.

    I had an old lady that tried to bring me out a glass out of milk...she turned away for a second but that was enough time to dump it in the bushes.

    Man I can't quit laughing, and poured it out to boot.
