    for a change, i'm gonna tell u about the nice customer i had. did a big leaf job today. showed up, the client was cleaning the front yard himself with a hand held blower. i'm like, wtf?" do u need us or what? we were scheduled here today." he says, "of course, i was just bored, i'll do the front, u do the back." i'm like, "ok". halfway through, he comes by and says feel free to use the bathroom, and there is a fridge in the garage full of drinks. i couldnt believe it. nice as pie, this guy was great. finished, drank 8 of his coronas, he thanked the heck out of me, and paid me in green(ummm, i mean, the check was green). nice guy, few and far between.

    kid you will see one day, just wait till you turn 21 everything that was something becomes no big deal and I am only 22. Sounds like a pretty good deal bobby, don't you luv those customers that are brief but make your day.

    trex, wow, i didn't know u were only 22 yrs old. i'm sorry about the mudd pie thing. well, actually, no, i'm not. but, do u know what i was doin in 81, while u were being fitted for your first diaper, and your momma was cursin out the doctor for takin "a little too much off"? i was livin large kid. lovin life. makin every fishin magazine in the area, and fightin the chics off. not that i didn't want them, but, more than three was a crowd. he's right though kid, when you reach the ripe old age of 22, lots of things wont matter. when u reach 38, nothin will matter. yup, my customer today was of very few words, and many beers, love him lots

    Oh, bobby knows about the PITA's. Just his luck, the one with free "beer" would have a fridge full of coronas.
