    One of my customers left me a message Sunday "I'm getting ready to mail out some bills, but I realized you'll be by tomorrow, so why don't you just knock on the door, I have your check"

    So today I mow, finish up, and knock on the door. I'm waiting for a few seconds, then I see the teenage daughter peek out the window. "It's Mower Man" I hear her yell. The lady comes out with the check, we exchange chit-chat. "So, I'm Mower Man, huh". She looked embarassed. "Oh, you heard that. That's what the kids call you."

    There was a thread recently about customer nicknames, never occured to me that they have nicknames for us, too.

    Anybody got a nickname?
