    you give a quote for leaf cleanup. let's call it $300. you schedule it for end of next week. we have 3 days of heavy rain. the leaves are now matted, mushy, and this cleanup will take alot longer. is it still $300?

    I either stick to the original price (do them now) or wait until the leaves dry some (do them later).

    packer, i think you would do this job, at the same price, wouldn't you? even though it will take 2 twice as long

    Yup i sure would, when i tell someone something i stick to it, like i said why should a customer get stiffed over something we cant control, or you could wait a couple days till it drys out, its only fair

    and why should you do more work, because something happened that you couldn't control? did YOU make it rain?
