    I got a $50.00 tip on a $30.00 lawn this week!! I called and said you left to much money, and the homeowner said "no I didn't, That is for your impeccable work". I knew this was gonna be a great year!!:dancing:

    Customer gave me $150 bucks to check his boiler when his heat alarm went off. Lost prime, so i bled the fuel line and fired it up. (he was in Fl on vaca)
    $150 was cheap, if pipes froze and burst it would have cost a LOT more.
