    Just tell them your in this business to make a living and if they get some one else who cares...... keep waving they`ll get over it
    And most likely go through all the lawnies in the area till they find a beer bob...
    ....Nothing like a good whipper....

    Depends how well you know your neighbours I guess. I do work for four of mine beside me and across the road and never any problems as long as you communicate effectively.

    Not much you can do about it unfortunately. I'm pretty sure I know who you are referring to as the new contractor too.
