    With Coit it was huge, lots of over time and Sundays.

    Too many heathens, travelers and Ofers in Santa Cruz to ever to amount to anything

    But here in Picklesville I think I may see a spurt of activity this year..


    How about your town?

    Thanksgiving rush is always greater than the Christmas rush

    We always get a rush before the "relatives visiting" holidays.

    Usually more of a rush at thanksgiving. Already booked out till the Tuesday before

    Will have another bump before Xmas but usually done the week before the Holiday. Everyone is decorated and they don’t want to move things around.

    Sounds like you've never been asked to move and clean under the Christmas tree. We have, LOL!

    Yes Christmas and Thanksgiving and then nothing after New Years.

    Everyone cleans up for the holidays so the relatives and friends don't see how dirty they are all year long.
    Ohhh by the way I need to clean my own carpet this week. :redface:

    Yeah!! A rush of Flakes that is.

    People want to get stuff cleaned before the holidays but over extend themselves with their time or money and end up cancelling or rebooking several times.
    A day's schedule will fall apart and sometime rebuild up during that same day.
    A big waste of time for the Super Agents.

    I take the insult................(as a badge of honor) but could you please translate, so that I know more precisely why I should be insulted :winky:

    Oh, and there's always a rush of holidays procrastinators. I'm getting so many calls from John's rejects that I had to let people know on my recorded voicemail that we have no openings till after Thanksgiving.

    Jews don't clean before the tree goes up.

    My last three or four calls specifically asked for before Thanksgiving. No Christmas rush yet.

    Whats a good way to advertise to people need to clean before and after their saturnalia festivities? And of course, celebration of the butchered turkey..
