Pretty tired of rolling up water hoses. "BLC7 mowing and hose gathering service, how may I help you?"

It was an automated thing that called you to let you know that someone had submitted a message to you via Angie's List. I say "was" because I put an end to that REAL quick. It's a nice feature that helps you get back to people promptly, but when the phone rings at 3 am you think that someone died - and I called and told them just that.
I had them deactivate the auto-notice feature.

I do get a call or text up until ten pm on occasion, but it doesn't bother me. It's always regulars with info I need, or something they need to let me know. If I don't want to be bothered I just turn the ringer off and check the message later.

3 weeks ago I got a call from the neighbor of the 3 customers I have. She was worried I didn't come by on Thursday and it was Friday morning.

that would work better for me since i'm awake at those hours.

what is dumb is i'll get a text at like 6:30am asking if i'm coming to mow that day?

i'm like are you kidding? you couldn't wait until 10am or later to send that to me? you had to wake me up at 6:30am for something that stupid?

people are nuts man. they think the world revolves around them and that everyone does the same thing they do. they think hmmm i'm awake at 6:30am so that means everyone else is too.
