From what our thermometer says it's over 100 degrees right now and there's a guy on a ladder cleaning and fixing our gutters!
He said he'd do both our houses (ones a rental) for $35.00. But I wrote up a contract
stating that he do it for $40.00 and we are giving him a $10.00 tip just for fixing them since that wasn't part of the deal. I got off REALLY cheap because they needed cleaning badly. What I didn't know was they needed fixing too. If I had more money I'd be giving him more, but we are so broke so we scraped together the money we ARE giving him.
I asked him why he's cleaning them in this heat and he said he has kids and has to earn money somehow, that provoked me to give him more money also. I just wish I had more to give him. I'm to broke this month though. One good turn deserves another though. I'll give him something more when I get the chance.
