    I have 3 customers that are always sitting at home when I mow and they don't want to pay me while im there but will drop a check in the mail on that same day. It seems like that would be more complicated than just paying me at the time of service and I know they are home because they will come outside when im there and wave at me. I should ask them, but they are paying me on time so i guess I will leave it alone. Just curious if anyone else has this type of issue. :hammerhead:

    I have a few customers that are the same way...no idea why, other than maybe they are just illogical folks :D

    I ask one of them yesterday if she would rather save her stamp and give me a check while im here and she said "Thanks but i will drop it in the mail today like i normally do". I was laughing inside when she said that.:laugh:

    They're showing their support for the postal service.

    Hahahahah!

    You should convince them that the 50 cents will add up over the years... 12 months a year, 50 cents a stamp is $6 a year! In 6-7 years they could have a free mowing! :laugh:

    They probably live on a fixed income or week to week and need to wait until certain times of the month to cover the check????

    Could be the deal, but I mow same day every week. Early in the week for these three. They are good people, just stuck in their ways I guess
