Customers that sign up for a landscape job and want it done right away when I have 20 jobs before them and they want done next week before everyone I allready have scheduled. You should have called me before spring idioit.

Customer asks me if I can stop over this evening after they get off work around 7pm to go over some things in the yard. Yeah sure I want to come over to your place after I've been working hard for 12 hrs now, sound like a blast!!

Oh you found a company who has undercut me by 5 bucks?!?! GOOD!

1) The fact that we just had 3 days of rain and you're calling me, asking when we'll be there to cut your grass because you want to have a "Mower-less dinner out on the deck," makes me want to drop you as a customer!

2) Yes, For the record..I DO hide in the trailer just so I don't have to talk to you..

3) We cut your grass or do your landscape, We're not your personal movers! So don't ask me to move your Kids' Toys, Trampolines and sandbox.

4) Don't worry, my guys love whipping the side of your yard since you choose to run your pump out the side of your house instead of properly routing the water elsewhere!

5) yes i cut your grass low since you feel the need to water it non-stop.

6)Fall Time: I secretly blow all of your leaves into the woods so I don't have to take as much...If any!

7) Either I'm going to do the complete job or none of it AT ALL! I'm glad you just ordered 6 Yards of mulch and cant even spread 1.

8) You were so eager for me to plant your "Spring flowers" at your plaza.... and what do ya know? The Day after we planted them, we had Frost... Guess who's not replacing them?!?!?

9) If everything in the world has gone UP, WHY are you asking me to LOWER your bill?!?!

Somehow I'm guessing it would be creepy for my clients if I did end up dating one of them. It might also be kinda akward...

That is true. My thing is being able to see around my 18ft trailer when backing in and out of small drives in the city. You can't just park on the street around here. And if someing gets banged up who cares. Just throw some black paint. How is fuel milage with an encosed non v nose? Is it about the same or worse?
