Barking up the wrong tree.

Sometimes there is no pleasing customers, no matter what you do to accommodate them and at that time they should no longer be a customer. Time is money and it shouldn't be wasted. After enough time spent trying to accommodate them you must know that you're barking up the wrong tree (Thats a British expression for time wasting)

Very true, if you cant make them happy it is best to just tell them that it is not working out and they have to find someone else. Best to tell them, don't just stop showing up. If they press you why it is not working tell them, Honesty is still the best policy

i have one customer that I cant really stand...He is extremely anal about his yard and will get pretty upset if he finds ONE weed in his yard when he is walking around in it. It took some time but I just do my best and let the chips fall as they may...He isnt home most of the time so i just do my work and leave and send him a bill each month...I might not like him but I sure do like his money
