I had a customer that praises my work every week cancel on me yesterday.
Guess why?


19.00 per week savings on lawn.............



I have been taken care of her lawn 44.00 per week

and some guy became behind me and told her 25.00...

She told me that she would call me back if he didnt do a good job. I told her not to bother calling me back.

Allen, I know that feeling, but at least she told you the truth instead of telling you that all of a sudden your work was lousy like mine did. I had rather be told about the price than my work insulted.
