Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

When someone says he's going to do something for me I expect it to be done.  When he says he's going to do it. Right now my grass is so high I'm losing sight of my giraffe (just kidding).  It was supposed to get mowed on Saturday.  Then I get a call asking if it would be okay to mow it Monday.  I agreed and let him know that the check would be in the usual place because I wouldn't be home.  Then I get a call from his wife or mother (I'm not sure which because they both sound the same) asking if it would be okay to mow another day because he had to take child to school open house.  I said okay.  Got home Friday and still no mowing done.  So I called him yesterday and left a message telling him I'm going to find someone else.  I hate it when I can't rely on someone.  I was really trying to be tolerant because he has significant health problems and I know he could use the extra money.  However.....this was the second time the mowing was put on hold and when he and his family did mow the first time the clippings were everywhere in clumps.  Why can't people just admit they can't follow through?  Sigh.

You've got to let the bad ones go so you can find the good ones. Good luck!

I have the same problem with the girl(woman) that is supposed to do some light cleaning around her house. Not showing up, not calling, just kinda blowing the whole thing off.

Things are certainly not the way they were in our day!

Now I just have to find the good one, Sixbears.
They certainly aren't, Jim.

I've had good luck lately, just everything costs so dang much! I think I'll have to work until I'm 90 at this rate!
