    The next-door neighbor of one of my clients stopped me today and asked if I would aerate his yard when I aerated my clients yard. Now get this, he had the nerve to ask me if I would do it for "five or ten bucks since you will already be next door". After I got over the initial shock of the request, realizing it wasn't a joke, I just told him "no f-ing way". He just walked off.

    No he had a Bush sign. He thought that aeration might turn up a few WMDs.

    I mow a couple of neighbors properties and they seem to grasp the concept that I am in this business to earn a profit, not cut them a sweatheart deal just because they chose to live in the neighborhood I live in. The 3 of them are some of my best clients.

    Burn...that's what I was thinking. Funny how one little missed detail can get the thread headed in another direction completely.
