    I have one customer who ask me call for whatever day I will cut his lawn so he can turn his sprinkler system off for that day during July and August. Just add these type of requests to your route sheet or whatever you use. Mo big deal part of business.

    Never run into that one, but I constantly run into the 'can you cut me friday' bit. I tell them sure, move to the area I cut on Friday, and I'll be happy to accomodate you. :)
