    On Wed. I was power raking a yard and this guy from across the street walks over and "says how much for my yard". I tell him $100 and he agrees to it and says come do it on Friday and I'll be home around 2:00 to pay you. I show up at noon and start working on it and see him coming from a block away and he suddenly turns instead of coming down to his house. When I was done I wrote up a bill and stepped inside his porch to leave on his door and there is a note in there saying not to power rake because he found someone else that would do it for $40. He already hired me and told me to show up and do it. He had my card so he could have called and said not to do it. I wrote on the bill that if he doesn't pay I'll turn over to collections. I hope I get paid.

    If he doesn't pay you he could always get a serious grub problem in his yard. Local bait shop can help you. LOL Good luck.:laugh:
