    Some fool came up to me (neighbor of customer) saying he was in the "cheesecake business" I busted out laughing in my head.. Anyway seeing if we could take care of his 3ft tall nightmare of a lawn for some cheesecakes...What a jacka$$. So, trying not to laugh, I explained I had a guy on the clock, didn't care for cheese cake and most of all don't care to abuse my equipment especially for cheese cake. I hate people that want to trade you something retarted. I would be willing to cut for a web designer to get me a web page or a paint guy to paint my truck or something actually worth something. Not cheesecake, and especially if your yard is a nightmare.

    I just renovated his front lawn 3 weeks ago, it came out real nice. He offered me unlimited stay at his place in Myrtle Beach SC. I'll be heading down by Thanksgiving.

    the only forms of payment i accept are cash, checks and money orders.

    leaving a paper trail in my business when it comes to clients paying me is a necessity.

    I've had people try to give mowers, snowblowers, etc but I turn it down. I tell them I don't need that crap. I buy comercial products and don't need craftsman junk. Had a couple women offer sex but I have a wife plus if they are paying for their lawn care with cootch I'm guessing about 2 or 3 other guys hit it everyday. They probably pay rent and other stuff by spreading.
