    Had a lady after her husband died gave me a .32 SW and a 870 Remington shotgun both never fired. Said she found them under the bed, she never knew her husband had them, and didn't want them in the house.

    All my finds on my list I still have and use (some).
    The heavy ass ladder, I still mow there lawn. B10 runs like a top I mowed his commercial lawn for 5 years till he moved out of state, He gave me the 42" 16hp mower when he was cleaning out his storage shied. The BIG MOW was from a guy I did small engine repair for, I don't use it but it works. Lazy-boy chipper/vac from a customer i still mow for. Snow blower is a older huge snow blower that I use every year, cant remember where it came from but it was a old customer i had years ago. The Snapper tiller was given to me from a guy that I saved his life, true story. Blowers came from my competition that CFS (Can't Fix ****). The 64 Simplicity and Lawn-Boy was from a co-worker of 16 years ago that I fix his mowers and call a good friend.

    Big screens, riding mowers from sears, I was offered keys to a vacation home in mexico somewhere, that i could not afford to fly family too, most important tho are timely paymens, compliments, and continued business and referrals. To mme that means the most. A tip is impulsive and appreciated but sending in your payment every month on the same day is awesome to me.

    I had a client that I cleaned up 6 mature hickory trees from her yard, after it all said and done she bought me a new stihl ms250. It's a great little limbing saw.

    I never mix business with pleasure.

    now you've lost a paying client.
