    So, a customer that I had the last couple of years, but I dropped this year because of the traveling to get there, calls me and asks if I wouldn't mind doing their fall clean up this year. I said sure no problem, I will do one the end of October and then in the middle of November. They have this one guy mow their lawn, but they liked how I did the clean ups so they figured they would give it to me instead of him before they head off to Florida.

    So I am traveling over there today and who do I see on the property, the guy with a lawn mower sucking up leaves with a pull behind vac unit.

    I was so mad, what a waste of trip over there where I could have made some descent money. I didn't even bother getting out of the vehicle and telling the guy to bugger off they want me to do it, I just kept on driving by smiling.

    But I figured easy money for me.......travel charge.
