    I'm pretty backed up and would like to get caught up but I'm not sure about interrupting people's holiday weekend?

    Work if your backed up. However, kinda sounds like you want the day off??

    Most customers understand schedules...also you could do your commercial accounts if you have any.

    I can't believe anyone who is an owner/operator and is intent on making a serious living at this could even consider taking a holiday completely off. There's enough downtime in winter already. I'm doing a few residentials very early, then a 4 hour commercial job. Hopefully done by noon.

    Kudos to the owner/operators who are able to run a business that allows for the day off so that employees and their families are able to celebrate the Fourth of July......

    i have 14 lawns to do tomorrow so i can take the 4th off. i would rather work but it disturbs too many customers who want too sleep late and have cookouts. holidays are a royal pain!

    Im working on monday so i can get tuesday off. No way could i miss monday and tuesday. If i do come across a cookout ill just skip that house... but i would think most cookouts will be on tuesday anyways.
