So you ARE a beer bob?

 

 

When I see a neighbour approach I can almost guarantee its going to be a pain in the butt. They are almost always the Gladys Kravitzs that can be be bothered to organise things themselves. They hear a lawnmower next door and automatically assume you will "just pop over" and do it for cheap.............or a carton of beer if you are a beer bob.

Mate ill take $40 for 20 minutes work with no catching next door to a nice two-three week regular customer... But then I don't have your operating costs... 

He had a late model Maloo ute, a late model HiAce done up with mags and heavy tint and a newish CRF450F in the open garage.

as an aside, someone insisted on paying cash last week…

 

pest, I have to drive it to the bank and stand in a queue, it's extra time that job actually cost me and I still have to generate an invoice.

 

I love EFT. I send them an invoice, they put it in the bank.

 

Post edit: It's still work for us office dwellers. DJ

Yes they are.

Waste fees?

If it didn't happen why would you have to bury it?

$55 minimum for up to 200kg round here

 

it never happens the first time, maybe not the first 3 times, but regular customers have a value to the business. might help you get  better loan as well

Do you look after the tip guys at Christmas with some cartons? 

Yes of cause regular customers add value to the business but that has nothing to do with Cash or a "better" loan. Not sure what you mean by that TBH?

That’s something that has really changed in society where we gift those who we appreciate what they do.

I had a boss that used to give the local police sergeant a bottle of Johnny walker black label at Christmas. It was also the ‘done’ thing to leave some grog for the garbos at Christmas for the same reason.

2 cartons of beer at Xmas and I haven't paid a tip fee at my local tip for 2 or 3 years. Its a no brainer.

 

I also do up 3 xmas hampers for the three property managers who I deal with and the wife and I always get a hamper each back.
