Yeah, and it would only cost around $3,000 per acre to paint a lawn...and it will last until you mow....what a deal!

Adding to my list this evening:

-If you're completely rude and a total b!+cH to me soon as you answer the door as I'm there introducing myself upon arrival for the first time, don't expect great things to become of your lawn and landscape. I just lost all interest in the account, and am ready to walk off the job at any time.

--You haven't paid for your one time service, when I did it in early April. After I did the work I found out you were a renter. Big mistake on my part. I've sent 1 email, 2 mailed letters and one certified, hoping you'd respond. I've called you on my work cell but you don't answer. BUT... when I called on my home phone you picked up. When I asked for my money, you said "I'm mailing it tomorrow, my husband just got paid" Even when I do get a hold of her, she tries to delay paying the bill even more!!!

Rule#1 Don't work for renters!!!

~ On a beautiful Spring day, I'll come give you your estimate and listen to you gush about all your glowing intentions of making your lawn/yard look like it belongs in a magazine. And while your enthusiasm dwindles, so will mine. You see, I find it very challenging to care MORE about your lawn than you actually do. And by the time the leaves are falling in November, you have grown tired of paying me...and want some kind of deal to wind up the year...WHEN IT'S THE TIME OF THE YEAR THAT I WORK HARDEST IN THE POOREST CONDITIONS.

Ahhhh, I feel so much better.......but I'm still not looking forward to leaves in November.
