    It was in the form of Mr. Grant.:D

    I have worked for this man for 2 years and he appreciated the work that my wife and I do. Property is worth about 1/2 a mil. He gave me the 50 today when I showed up to clean 1 gutter that he was not wild on doing. It is nice to be appreciated. This job is tough at times and at times it appears to be thankless but there is always that little surprise that comes up when you least expect it.

    Have a nice day, we are going to dinner.

    Good for you, Bro. Like Bobby said it's nice to be appreciated. Since we rarely get tipped, you must be great job!

    Yeah, what happened to those days??? I remember bringing in over $400 in Christmas tips on my paper route when I was a kid. I'm lucky to get $50 from my lawn customers these days.
