Sunday morning 9 AM - doing a little paperwork before taking the day to spend w/ the family.... Phone rings and a woman asks if I can come right over and mow her lawn. No she's not a client, and we are booked for the season. I'm thinking sure, let me go out to the garage load up everything I need, run right out and make a quick $30 bucks or so - not gonna happen. I know that there are a lot of scrubs in this area, but come on - I don't think they even need the beer money that bad. It is a shame that so many still don't see this as a professional industry. We try to get done by 1PM on Saturdays as it is and don't work weekends July or August unless Mother Nature dictates otherwise. It is a little enraging and disheartening at times when you get reminders of how low our profession is sometimes viewed. I know that spring and fall are more a crunch time for our industry, but some people don't realize that we too have lives, and families and need time off to relax. Sorry for the rant - just venting a little.
