So 2 months ago i fixed a new customers lawn , lot of bare spots and dead stuff , repaired everything planted new seed , dropped down new soil followed up every week to see how it was going , he calls today and says " jeremy can you come out and see whats going on because i have a huge spot 6x6 that is dead and no grass is growing now i dont know why .....get there and there were a million flys all over the area , hmmm took my shovel and moved the soil around to find **** " like real ****" under the layer of dirt , i asked him if he let his dog go out side in the front yard ....he said no that it was his cat WTF ...really ??? this is cat was using this 6x6 area as his litter box ......WOW WOW WOW ....this guy has been a pain in the *** all year i think im going to drop him at the end of this year

i have told this guy 2 times now if he does not pick up the dog **** in the yard i will not cut his grass , today i get there and it looked like he didnt pick up for a week ....i charged him for a double cut GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRr

Sounds like that cat had a custom septic tank.

I had to drop a customer I had for 2 years because of the dog sh*t. We're talking a 1000 sq ft lawn. By the time I left there I had sh*t on every tire and usually my boots. I mean cmon with a lawn that small it shouldnt be a problem.

Has he said anything about your charge or does he just pay it?

LOL...I feel for ya..I know exactly what you are saying, Most of my customers are pretty good about picking up the land mines..I had a woman call me and ask me for an estimate to mow her lawn because her boyfriend moved out and she could not drive the mower..I got there and the grass was 2' freakin high !! I gave her a price and she agreed to let me mow it..It didn't take long before I started hitting the mines and flinging it everywhere, It got too the point I had to stop...

I ask her about it and she tells me yeah I have five dogs..OMG !! do you ever pick up the crap lady !!! I charged her for powerwashing my equipment as well as the mowing...I did not respond to her next call....
