Sarcastic answers to smart comments

A customer of mine recently commented: "I see you have a new 4x4? You must be doing well! Next thing I will see is you will be driving a Porsche Boxster like mine" I replied, indeed I will but for one thing, the exhaust is in the wrong place for the tow hitch. I still have the account

Should have told him; "Why? Your Boxster has half the horsepower, none of the towing ability, and its the girl version." Then ask him when he's getting the "boy one"?

I had a customer ask me if I wish I could afford his BMW x3 little roadster.
I looked at him bold faced, pointed over my shoulder to my Mitsubishi .
I said "two of yours for one of mine"
He looked at me like I was crazy until he found out what we pay . Then he said he was coming to work with us.

I used to mow for a crabby old lady and her husband. He was a nice guy, but she was a "B". One day, while I was mowing, she hollared at me and asked me if my blades were sharp enough. She said she saw a couple of blades of grass still sticking up.
I told her to come stick her hand under the mower deck, and check for herself. She promptly went back inside the house.

I ripped some bushes out today for a neighbor of the job I was originally working on. I finished and he paid me my $500. Then he asks for a price on a new driveway, and he says "give me a good price since you raped me on the bushes". I said "yea you wish"

Don't know how I feel about working for him in the future, or if that's just how he jokes around.

"Are you sure you're cutting on 2 inches?"
Yeah bring your Male sexual organ over here and we'll use it as a depth gage.

His wife laughed and 3 years later I'm still cutting his yard.

Isn't the trash talking a big part of why we signed up for this gig?

Nice. You should have asked him, is this your husband's car?
