2 weeks ago as I was finishing up mowing for the 1st time for a customer that just moved in when she walked up to me with an odd-looking grin on her face. She said," You just about done with it?" I replied," Yeh, just about. I've gotta blow off the drive and walks yet." And she looked at me and stared for a second. She said,"OOOOOOO kay"(sarcastically). I asked her then," Am I forgetting anything that you'd like me to do?" She replied to me," Well, I knew all you 'lawn guys' were dumb, but I didn't think you were that bad." I said," Excuse me?" And she said"(pssh) and I suppose you don't even notice that you only cut about 1/2 of the yard, huh?"I then went on to tell her about the effect of lawn striping and how it works as kindly and calmly as I could. She apologized for being a quote"butt-munch" :laugh: and said that she thinks it looks nicer with them(the stripes) on the grass anyways. She was very sincere and I told her that I'd probably have the same reaction if only half of my grass was cut. She also apologized about the "dumb-lawn-guy" remark and said she has stereotyped service providers for years, and now will never again. Last week as I was leaving I found a gallon-sized bag of chocolate-chip cookies on my seat with a thank-you note :usflag:.

I used to see a couple of Zoysia lawns in K.C. where the homeowner would mow patterns kind of like that in Oct./Nov. when the Zoysia would be dormant. I looked kinda cool and I suppose the guy was tired of the brown dormant look.
