Had two calls today for one time jobs. Weather hit 77 degrees so everyone is in a panic to have their lawn cut. First lady says "I would like to have my lawn cut" "I live in (45 min drive where I have no customers near). Can you do it by Monday?" I tell her no as I am booked till Wednesday with mowing. She polietly says "ok thanks for calling me back". Second guy calls " Hi this is Mr. So-and-so and I have an emergency." First thing to pop in my mind being a firefighter is CALL 9-1-1. He procedes to say "My mower blew up and I really need my grass cut. Think you could do it in the next couple hours?" My reply was "No sir soonest I could be there is Wednesday. "Well I live in the same town as you just hop over" "Sir I said I could not get to you till Wednesday. Maybe you should call someone else." He hung up. Your poor planning is not my emergency. Sorry for the rant, I just needed to vent.
