Working Memorial Day?

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by David Haggerty, May 28, 2006.

  1. I just wondered who's working Memorial Day besides me?
    I got to mow one customer tomorrow or the schedule's going to be a mess. It's a plant with 8 acres of turf. 35 miles away. But if we get an early start we'll be home for the cookout at noon.

    We have a short list for the crew tomorrow. I told them, when they finish, they can go home with 8 hours pay for working the holiday. I bet they finish in less than 4 hours. They will be motivated.

    Well, I got this loss leader of a commercial contract that unfortunately does pay the most out of all and if it were not for this contract, I would not be ahead of last year's gross...

    That having been said, I get to spend 3-4 hours at that place tomorrow.
    Good thing it's hardly 3 or 4 miles up the road.
    That and I have to replace a fuel pressure regulator.
