    I was doing a cleanup for one of my customers and a little girl who lives next door and had been playing outside, she couldnt have been more than about 4 or 5 walked up to me, hands me a dime and a nickel, and in a very polite and professional way says " Could you please do my property when you get a chance?", pointing to a small pile of leaves under her swingset/playhouse. It was all I could do not to start laughing at the whole situation. I told her sure, but this one was on the house, gave her the change back and cleaned up the pile quickly with my vac. :D

    That's great that you did that.
    Things like that make a kids day. It's worth more than anyone could have paid you to see her smile. I bet if the parents saw what you did, you'd definitely be appreciated.
    Those are the kinds of things that separate the good guys.

    You'll be rewarded in some way or another one day.

    This is a "feel good" thread, thanks for sharing.

    Although I am sure there were some scrubs around willing to do it for $0.14 :jester:
