She told him he was "Mean" and since he was 3 months behind on payment was a "deadbeat" and a drain of society and then she told him he was cancelled!!!. The guys was taken back, paid up his account and begged to continue being a client...he is nice as pie now but some folks think they can abuse the gal on the other end of a phone just because it's a women. When you mess with the horns ... sometimes you get the entire bull

I would have loved to have heard your wife ripping him a new one!!

Some times that is the ticket... good for her.

This is ridiculous
in NO WAY should you refund her. You explained your situation. If they didn't listen or believe you that is not your problem. You did the responsible thing and atleast tried to explain to the customer that this or that could happen.

so if i have this right it was the 1st and only time you have done her lawn and you did actually finish the edges but with a trimmer not an edger so you actually finished the job so there is no way you should offer a refund . i would say you have lost a PITA and should be glad your not doing her anymore
she probably only wanted a 1 of service and has used this as an excuse
