    You know your doing cleanups when....

    It's freaking 6:00pm, you can't see a freaking thing, your sucking up leaves, and the freaking truck that the freaking leaf vac is on just got freaking full and you still have a freaking pile of freaking leaves that you still have to freaking pick up. Now your in the back of the freaking truck, in the nasty freaking leaves, freaking jumping around just so you can freaking fit more freaking leaves in to finish the freaking job and go the freak home and take a nice hot freaking shower just to freaking do it all over again the freaking next day. Oh yeah, and at that point you are definitely not saying "freaking". :cool:

    You know it's fall cleanup time when the rich people take their cars out of the parking lot until your done! Today, BMW 5 series man pulls out, notices I'm coming in the lot to start cleanups. An hour later he pulls back in and I'm working on his lot - He takes off again and finally returns after his lot is spotless.

    OOOO' Please.................:blob4:

    You know that kid on Charlie Brown.... the one with a walking dust cloud around him??? Thats what I feel like walking in the door at night! "A PIGPEN"

    when you dump the leaves out of you wallet and find three $200 checks, and a hand full of cash, and a list of possible new customers for next year.:blob3: :D

    then you have to call the origional customers on your list and explain your self.:(

    You know it's fall clean-up time when:

    It's about 8:00 am and your first customer says:

    " I thought you were gonna wait for all the leaves to fall"
