A lady calls me today...all stressed out because her lawn guy hasn't returned, and his phone is disconnected. I go over to give her a quote...which is higher than her old guy. She tells me..."well the other guy charged me $25" I was so tempted to say...WELL MAYBE THATS WHY HIS PHONE IS DISCONNECTED!! lol But I bit my tongue, and said...well..I provide a good reliable service and Im always reachable. It may not be funny to you, but it was soooooooo hard NOT to say that. I got the job by the way. I guess sometimes people have to learn their lessons with lowballers...GREAT PRICE...BIG HEADACHE when they go in the poor house.

Hopefully the guy didn't change his number so that your new customer wouldn't call him any more.:laugh:
