    lol, sorry but thats just funny, of course it wouldn't be if it were my customer. That reminds me of when the kids use to put bubbly bath in the local country club fountain. There'd be so much bubbles blowing down the road....:)

    Sounds like somebody might be messing with you, find out who and put toilet paper on some of they're yards right before a rain.

    Mulch kit or use a ocdc and mow them up. When they are ground reall fine they will disappear.

    Packing peanuts suck. Spent an hour in my yard looking stupid with a big shop vac yesterday because my dog dragged a box full of em from the garage.

    I worked for a large commercial company years back and the guy operating the tractor made a B-line for a full newspaper on a windy day...I was not impressed.

    we had a few with them this week as well. I can't believe you picked them up. We tell or guys to pick up all trash within reason. Guess what all 3 lawns with packing peanuts this week was not in reason. especially after they got cut up into mini packing peanuts. The reason for the within reason is the hossiers that leave beer cans all over their back yard or cigarette butts in a huge pile right by their porch. That is beyond the scope of our lawn maintenance programs. unless they want to pay extra. So each week the cans and the butts get shredded and each week their is a new pile of them.

    My mowing charge doesnt include that kind of service. You are a nice guy I guess.
