    I do all my doctor and dentist offices on Sundays. In my contracts it states I reserve the option to mow on Sundays due to rain, no one seems to have a problem with the possibility of an occasional mowing on Sunday.

    Very rarely and it is a have to situation. Most of my clients would not be pleased about it and I have some that Im sure would tell me to come back another day no matter how bad it needs mowing.

    In 7 yrs of business, we've probably only worked 3 Sundays ever. It's the one day that we do our best to never work.

    Same here, once in 4 years I worked on a sunday BUT here's my rule:

    - NO fuel driven equipment runs on sundays.

    Thus on sundays I may be found doing maintenance, washing the truck + trailer, and sometimes I go out in my car to do some weeding or an estimate I find is ok, too.

    I'm part time, and as Sunday is one of my days off, I don't hesitate to work on Sunday if weather or other problems causes me to need to. In fact, will probably go mow one this aftenoon close to my home.
