A customer gave me a nice tip today. The tip was equal to one weeks service charge. I thought that was a pretty nice tip, considering people in the south generally only tip for good service at dinner. The funny thing about that is he's originally from California. Anyways, he says that he gave me the tip because he feels I really care about the customer and how their lawn looks. Plus a tip was the lest he could do in exchange for the time spent sharing tips with him on how to get the lawn in the condition it is today. In addition to this, I had another customer come to me Thursday and say, "we have decided to give you a permanent 5% raise for your services effective today" and hands me a check for my fee + 5%!!! The income is substantial on this account, so a 5% raise, mid-year, without me asking????........SWEET!!!! Also, Monday I had another customer to switch to full service after I made some suggestions about the landscaping and pointed out that it was not being serviced at all, which was making me look bad. The customer says "I want to go full service with your company. You do a great job taking care of the grass....I want the landscaping to look as nice as the grass, no matter what it costs....just do what you want and whatever it takes.... just send me the bill." I wish all my weeks turned out this good!
