bonuses- not tips

Post by Matt; My carpet cleaner on Wed Apr 04, 2018 11:36 pm

The other week I got a $50 tip.
This week: landlords were cleaning up triplex and had a slow cooker of baked beans w/ ham cooking. She filled up a empty Pepsi cup for me. It was awesome!!! I mean-Awsome!
Today: elk jerky!!??!?! My son likes it.
Did. Mention the baked beans were......awesome!!?!

That is what I like most about this industry, appreciative customers often send me off with baked goods. Some of the best baked beans I ever had were at an Amish village. The beans were baked with lemon, onion, and honey and then stored in glass jars. Those things were heaven and as thick as peanut butter.

I was offered dinner only once and they literally sat me down on the dining table, that was over 10 years ago but check this out, I was cleaning a nasty home 2 weeks ago, it was raining, living and dining combo, $ 150 job, customer gave me $ 250 ! I was like huh ? You gave me too much, I thought it was an accident, he said, no that's for you ! That broke the record for me.

That is one heck of a tip Dp! One my last job I mis-calculated and wrote the receipt for $50 over (she decided not to clean one of the bedrooms). I caught the error and told her, but she just said keep it. I cleaned a couple of throw rugs for her to clear my conscience.
