    A customer had some kind of gift party, because i saw ladies walking up with little gifts. Anyway, some of these ladies parked half on grass, and half on street. Due to my foul mood today, i didn't say anything. If it doesn't bother the customer, i wasn't gonna worry. I just skipped edging under the cars. This got me wondering what the people on this forum would do. Tell them to move, or leave it up to the customer and just go around?

    Yep, skip it and don't give it a second thought. Your customer knows what was up too, and that's what counts.

    its just one less thing for me to do. I still collect $35 or whatever you charge, and i get to the next job a little faster.

    that is a $60 yard. What's amazing was that there is two driveways, but they chose to park right behind me, half on the grass:confused:

    Sounds like Okie parking! Skip it and go on.

    Skip it. I do the same with customers who park their own cars too close to the edge of the driveway. I won't risk damaging someones car just to cut an edge.
