New type of order and not sure how to invoice it

So I get an order today for a property I have only been to once to do a grass bid on. It is for a trip charge. The work order reads " Client has been notified that the digital lock is not working" ( no big deal they fail all the time) then it goes on to say "also the client has been notified that there are people living in the woods on the left side of the property. Please resolve access issue and get homeless people to leave property. Please provide supporting before, action and after pictures for payment approval". Now I get paid per CYD of debris, per gallon of paint/hazard and per tire that I remove from properties. But do I charge per person I remove from the property? Or should I see how big there are and how many will fit in a 3'X3'X3' cube and charge per CYD? Also do they really need action photos of me making them leave? This was my comedy for the day. Day started out crappy this morning until I received this w.o. then I couldn't help but be in a better mood!!

Did you get accurate measurements of the trailer before leaving the property to justify your debri count removal lol

I would say it would really be paid like a live animal removal.

Pictures must show people in the cages and them relocated to a new safer environment.

You really want the risk of confronting people in timber and forcing them out? You think your client is going to pay a price for that?
Unless someone is tresspassing on my own land and I am armed, I let the authorities deal with it. I'll be glad to wager your client won't be covering your back if anything should happen.

Could be the guy taking pictures...

But, if we're still talking about the scenario of moving homeless out of the woods, he's the guy in the back seat of the patrol car. That's a homeless guy on the ground. Homeless guy got lippy and the PP contractor busted a cap. ;-)

EDIT: but as to the subject of the topic - I wouldn't touch that one. If the people aren't on the property in question, they have as much right to be where they are as I have to be where I am. If the owner of the "woods" doesn't care if they are there, then neither do I.

The client will not back you up if things go bad. Bet on it. it'll sound something like this, "All we told him to do was ask them to leave, we never told him to physically remove them."
