    Pull up to the home to find home TPed.
    1. Drive on and call customer asking him to clean up the mess.
    2. Clean it up your self before u mow.
    3. Number 2 but tack it on the bill.

    Call customer and give him the option of paying to get it cleaned up and door hanger the neighbor hood since you've already stopped while they clean up. If they aren't home still do some door hangers and move on to next job and hit it last. Would really stink though if it was the first job of the day and you work from furthest out.

    call him and find out if he wants you to clean it up. but call before you drive on.

    he've run into this with the owners kids throwing parties here at the vacation homes. beer bottles, etc everywhere.
