I've had this account for over a year. Big lawn but she's not to fussy. With trimming, takes me an hour or so to do. She let's me park my truck in her driveway so i can do another account right next to hers on the same day, so only charge her 48.00 per cut. You should see this house, must be a 4500 square foot colonial (repro) built about ten years ago. A house like this in our neck of the woods goes for at least 650 to 750K! So, what's 48 bucks a week right? New Lexus SUV, kids got all the toys. About 5 weeks ago, she started forgetting to leave a chack for me under the old ceramic bunny on the porch. And, when I did see her, she would write out a check for this week, and forget to add the last weeks mowing that she forgot. I would say, "judith, this is for this week, but you still have a balance due from last week." She would make some excuse about it and i would just tell her wwe would catch up next week. Current balance due 96.00 as of today. I show up on Thursday and she's home. As a matter of fact I follow her into her driveway behind her car. She gets out and comes over to the truck and leans against the open window. "I'm so glad I'm here when you are for a change...yeah...well it's like this, I'm going to have to go to mowing every 2 weeks because I just can't afford the mowing payments every week. And, I think I just want half the lawn done and not the entire piece over there" points to large piece over behind the house. "Can we skip this week and start every other week next Thursday?" I tell her that's fine but due to the 2 week growth rate, even though I'm cutting less, the price may stay the same. Her response was if to say...Why isn't it half price? We came ot an agreement finally and i was getting ready to leave...I asked for a check for the 96.00 that she owes and she seemed to transform into something this side of defensive. "Can i pay you next week?" I said sure, but she would have to include another 48 bucks for a total of $144.00 which would bring us up to date. She seemed to be a little pissed so before I drove away, i told her if for some reason she couldn't do that, please let me know before the day that i mow (So I don't drive my happy butt alll the way over Only to find out I'm getting stiffed) Any bets as to what happens this Thursday?
