    11.Yes ma'am I understand you are on a fixed income, you need to pay your lazy a** sons ivy league tuition, your 2 million dollar house on deep water needs dock repair and you need to save 50.00 a week. Glad I can help
    12.Sorry ,no I cant leave my 1250.00 a day crew hand weeding your beds for 3 days for the same price as little Timmy
    13.I know I was only here 15 min,the next time I'm gonna shave about 5 more off.
    14.Don't worry about a raise after 13 years, gas and expenses have only tripled, we are the only industry on the planet that never needs more money and is penalized for speed and efficiency

    They call it an"under ground" sprinkler system because it's underground,
    They're called "pop up" heads because they pop up from ...........under ground.
    If you call me 'cause we broke a head,........... "I will be happy to give you an estimate to update and properly install your system."
