    What time would your crews start cutting on a holiday that most all people would be off work and may want to sleep a little later, or is this even a consideration.

    9 a.m tommarow, I have to do 1 lawn, she wants it done before the parade. I said ok, and she said she'd give me a bonus seeing how I"m doing it on a holiday.

    I see absolutly no point in working on holidays. Everyone needs a break. Plus, I would be PISSED if I was having a family deal or cookout or something and some lawnguy was making a bunch of noise at my house or next door. I know I will NOT be mowing anything tomorrow.
