Here is a good one, true story.

Customer calls me before I started Rd 1 apps this year. Said "why are there so damn many weeds in my lawn, when I lived in Iowa, I only had to treat the lawn once a year and it was clean all year - pure KBG lawn!" I told him I have treated his lawn for 2 seasons now - when I first started the lawn was so full of weeds and in such bad shape it was a neighborhood eyesore. I went on to say the lawn looks 100% better now, in fact the guy's neighbors have come up to my truck asking for my biz card cause they liked how I had cleaned up this guy's lawn. He kind of mumbled something, then said "OK, why don't you come out and do 3 apps this year and we'll see how that goes, but I want to see less weeds. I said fine, I will do my best job. All the while thinking 'what is he talking about, his lawn looks really good???'

The customer is 85 years old and self proclaimed legally blind
