I mow a small (but nationally known) business less than a half mile from my house. $20, 20 minutes. Never heard a word from the manager for the three years I had the job, except "looks nice" when I seen her. Paid every month like clockwork. New manager this year - get paid every other invoice "HQ screwup" I was told. Anywho, about midway thru the season, I get a note in the mail that says please watch how I weedwack along the back splitrail fence (owned by the abutting property owner). I look the next time I mow and sure enough there is weedwacker damage. Then I look down the side where I don't mow and see the same thing - damage to all posts. I don't say anything, just try not to hit the posts and keep getting paid late. At the end of the season I get another note that says I need to find an alternate method of trimming next year due to damage to the fence and trees (which have grass right up to the trunk). My "alternate method" is to not show up next year and wait for his call when the grass is 12" tall. My wife says "wrong", go down and tell the manager I have never had a complaint, yada, yada and tell him the damage was already there, yada yada... What would you guys do?
