    I have recently recieved a few bonuses lately. One I got from family members of an elderly woman I work for. They pooled there money together and gave me $150 cash. I think they did it cause I am doing the work now instead of them. The other bonus came yesterday from a trailer property I maintain. I only go out twice a month for $150 a month and he sent me a check for $250. Just wondering how many of you guys recieve bonuses from your customers.

    I figure it's a bonus just to get paid.

    Not one bonus in 3 years, I think there would be a better shot if X-mas fell in May or June during the growing peaks! But also, knock on wood, I haven't been stiffed at all on payments, so like Rodfather said, that is a bonus in itself!

    The only thing I've gotten was a couple of Christmas cards, but this is only my second season. But one of my customers said go ahead and use the pool if I want to. I will do that the next time I cut their grass

    People give us extra money kind of frequently, only on the maintenance side of things though. My crew members even get cash from time to time from clients. It is always a nice thing and very welcome!
