What do you do when you go to mow a property and a gate is shut and locked? Mind you this, you are on your scheduled day. This happened to me on friday. The owner called me today (sunday) and told me that his gate is unlocked now and I can come mow his back yard. I kindly told him i was there on friday and it was locked so he missed his chance. He then didn't want to pay me the full amount. I told him tough nuts, not my fault. (in kinder words) How do you handle this??
