Today I was cutting a few bushes across the street from another client of mine when he gets home from vacation. He gets out of his suv with a ticked off look on his face. When his wife and kids get inside he walks around his house in a pouting matter. Knowing something was strange I walk across the street to talk to him. He then yells in my face and says "MITCH! why did you mow? I respond back " I always mow on Thursday or Friday depending on the weather." ( I have 5 customers on this street that I mow weekly also ) He then says he spent over $200 dollars watering his lawn before he left on vacation and now that its mowed he has to water again. He then said that he told me not to mow until he says so which I don't ever remember him saying. He has asked me not to mow on a few other occasions and i've always written it down in my clip boad. At this point guys I've about had enough. The only reason I've even put up with this crap is because he has given me alto of business. I have never seen a adult act so childish over some grass in my life. I cut this guys grass at 3 1/2'' ( the grass was at some points 4 1/2" when I cut )and striped it beautifully. I was very pleased at how well this guys yard looked that I was looking forward to him coming home from vacation to a awesome looking yard. I was sort of a let down to see that he was not pleased. And then he said it.. " Mitch I leave for 3 days and look what I come home to?.. I cant believe it." 1st off! The yard looked great.. It was the best looking yard on the street. 2nd Off! I doubt he spent $200 watering his yard in the first place!... And 3rd!... Who the Hell bickers about there lawn and then dares to talk to me like I drove my mower through the side of there house and tries to hide it like it never happened. After about 5 minute's of this crap I politely told him that I'm working for someone else right now. And that I would call. Ok.. Even if this guy does have a $200 water bill... He's moving into a house thats over $400,000. I've been in for a season and all has gone well. A few late payments but I have always got my money. For your older folk who have been in the business longer then I have.... Is this your typical customer?
