    Yesturday I was running late and called my last customer of the day to let her know I was headed to her house and had nt forgot her, when se answered and I identified myself on the phone she says" I'm sorry I wasn't home when you came today":confused: I told her I hadn't been there yet but was on my way there now. So she tellsme tat some one had been there earlier and cut all the yard outside the privacy fence ( the gate in was locked).
    Her neighbor said it was 2 men with a trailor full of equipment so it must ave been another company, but they left no card, no truck markings or anything and my customer has no idea who they were
    So I cut the back yard and get paid. I think they got the wrong house.:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    There's a pretty nice lawn in this neighborhood I pass - got resodded last fall with nice thick fescue - got fertilized by Chemlawn this spring - the crazy people still have not mowed it. The grass is dark green, and about 8" at this point.

    All I can think is that I should stop by one day on my route, and cut the front yard - just so I can take a picture of the stripes when I'm done lol. :laugh:

    Do it. Leave it looking great and leave a business card in the door.

    If my mistake turns into an account. I will start cutting lawns by accident more often.
