I have a twice a month customer that pays well, and the deal is that he cuts the weeks that I dont.

Well today was my day. I pull up to the house and think, what bas**rd cut my account!! Go to the house and owner says, "oh your here, I just finished the grass." I said, "I spoke to your wife this week, and told here that I was coming" Owner says that its no problem, cutting his grass is "theraputic, buy the way here is your check":eek:

Ok then, I`ll just come next week instead, he says "Ok fine by me.":p

Only thing better would have been if he'd CALLED YOU and told you not to come......& said the check is in the MAIL.

So now your schedule is thrown off a week. Twice a month customers don't think of that, they think you sit around the house on the weeks you don't cut them. But, you said he pays well, and that may make up for the rescheduling headache. I hope so.

That is why I don't do bi-weekly customers.....They tend to not represent your best work.....IMO...

This seemed to work out good for you....
