    Full time Cop, rotate day and afternoons every 28 days. Like day shift best but for the lawn cutting; being on afternoons works best for me, get done cutting before it gets to hot then go to work and deal with the knucleheads.:mad:

    I am 17 years old and do maintence on 16 or so yards. I am a senior this year and taking co-op so I can get out at 12:00. I then get my equipment ready and get to work. I mow till 2:30 then go to my other job which is a steak and fish restuarant from 3:00-10:30. I work at this resturant every weekday except Monday, which leaves me Saturday and Monday afternoon.

    Thanks for the info, and I thought I was the only one trying to keep my head above water ... Do you customers seem to mind you cutting in the evening and on Saturdays ?

    My partner & I are both teachers
    summers are great but
    april/May and aug/sept/Oct are very busy

    I tell the customers about are situation and that we have to be on a week or every two week schedule

    We do a lot of calling if the schedule is messed up -parent conferences at night

    be polite and appreciative of the situation

    remember if you are there every wednesday like clockwork and something comes up and you call they are happy!!!
