    This one lucked out since I do one on that same street on Fridays already. I'm all about building more route in concentrated areas like that.

    That and I tell them I do not schedule mowing on Fridays.

    Fridays are for rain delays that happened during the week. No body wants their landscaper to come on a Saturday when they are home and want to enjoy their yard.

    I mow Monday Tuesday Wednesday leave thurs Friday for rain or installs that way I can finish up Saturday if need be. I do one yard on Friday but they pay extra for it and it's close to home.

    I have a ton of customers that are willing to pay a premium for quality work.:dancing:

    I always get a chuckle out of how cheap the cheap guys must be working for in this area, as they underbid me on the total job price after buying all their materials from me and still underbid my prices by 30%
