Today, I gained two new clients at 60 and 70 a piece. but i lost a $25 one. The lady owed me for a few mowings and i called her tonight and she said she had someone else coming to mow tomorrow.... the strange thing is, she is my friends girlfriend. I was kind of doing her a favor at $25. although it doesnt take more that 15 minutes. what do you think? anyone ever expereinced anything close to this? im not bummed about it at all, its just a strange occurance.

1 step forward 2 steps back.

You were charging her $10.00 too much.
Don't blame her for kicking you to the curb. ;0]

Lol! No way I was doing it for $15. Costs more than that to get to her house! LOL
the worst part is that she said she has someone cutting it tomorrow. Maybe she thinks I'm mad at her about the money she owes me.

I believe this would be 1 step back, 2 forward.

Unless you are doing a condo complex or something that small that is ridiculous.

I have had this several times. Customer owes me haven't paid in awhile. I speak with them, they tell me they found someone else alot cheaper than me. I explain that is fine, Thanks for the Business could I get paid? Some pay some say I have to wait. Usually a few weeks later they call wanting me back due non cuts or poor cuts.

Right. She called me originally because she got a letter from the township saying shed be fined $100. I'll just wait till next time they give her one and then charge her $70 :-)

People are idiots. Zero sense of efficiency.

You can never turn a bad customer in to a good customer. They got another guy to do the same thing to. Buy the time it's all figured out she'll be long gone.
