I found most of them kind of customers just want somebody that doesn't treat them like the next ho to go pimp off for a dollar.
Granted some might be PITA's but most are probably just asking that someone at least try and pretend they're human.
I know how it is, some might think that the harder a man works, the more money they'll take home.
I used to think that, too.
Now I notch the gear selector down a slot and take it a little slower, ooops it takes longer,
I don't work near as hard, when I'm finished I collect my money, and go home.
Same here in Tulsa, I have 30 or so accounts, so if it is raining I don't have to mow the 30 yards that day. Most of my customers are the ones that had the service that would do it in 10 minutes. I take my time and visit with them when they are there. I have a small construction company so during the off season I am fixing there fences, decks, painting you name it. Works well for me the last 26 years.
