Wow, I thought I was the only one that heard something like that. HAHA. One lady said to me "I don't want my lawn to look like a stupid golf course. Who wants that??!?!" LOL!!!

Do excuses count too? I had a cust that was a vietnam vet very bitter about the military. He blamed the military on his memory loss as to why he hadn't mailed payment yet.

too fast, mower to big (52 lazer), too loud, Do you have to park your trailer in front of my house when you cut it?

I only got this one once "Do you mind if I pay you up front in cash for the whole year rather than being billed monthly?"

hahaha the guy who wants to pay cash up front just wants to pass off the drug money asap! I've gotten the "mower is too big" story a few times (61" wildcat). I don't know about you guys but I've also been asked to do some nasty a$$ jobs that have NOTHING to do with landscape. Last year an older lady asked me to empty out a trash can full of year old dog poo her late husband put outside by the garage...wtf! and it was January!

Oh, man. I got one yesterday. The lady told me I could dump grass in her compost fence thingy. When I returned yesterday she said:

"Your mower makes too much grass."
