I got a call today from a customer enquiring service for his mother's house. Apparently the now-former lawn guy hadn't shown up in a couple weeks, so they started thinking about hiring someone else who would be more reliable (me being their prime candidate based on the son's experience with me). Anyhow, they were trying to contact the other guy who had been doing the service there, and they found out that he got deported. Well, I guess that would explain him not showing up. I've heard a number of reasons/excuses for people not showing up to work, but this is actually the first time hearing that one.
