    snakes are every where, you may just not see them. you can still be afraid of them, but no need to fire a client. if you fire a client every time you see a snake, practice "would you like fries with that"

    Dropping an account for a snake? Does the OP have any idea of how many snakes he doesn't see?

    Funny I saw a snake tody while cutting grass, I dont thin it was a posion snake so I left him alone.

    I dont like snakes at all, all snakes that like to come close to my living quarters are likley to get killed..

    Last month I killed a rattle snake as big around as my arm, my cat was stering him down whil the snake was coiled up, that wsnt much fun

    Size doesn't matter really..the snake you saw was non poisonous. The one in the thread above is venomous.

    If your wife or girlfriend told you that she was just trying to be nice and not hurt your feelings.

    Op, I'm with you. There's no use for snakes, I would rather deal with all the rodents they eat instead.
