    Customer: "Sorry it's been so long getting back to you on your contract proposal. I've been real busy at work. I really like the proposal and the way you lay everything out. My neighbor's lawn looks SO nice, I finally decded to hire you. I don't like making monthly payments though."

    I'm thinking, well that's just too bad....

    Customer: "So I wrote out a check for THE ENTIRE YEAR and dropped it in the mail to you. Can you start cutting May 1st?"

    "Yes mam, thank you, mam.

    ;)

    payup

    People never cease to amaze me.

    God is good.

    I had a few customers do the same thing. We've been meeting with all our customers trying to sell them to the idea of a monthly contract. One guy sat there pondering then said "Lets see, 140 times 7 is what, $980? Tell you what, you mind if we just pay you that up front?" Then without even waiting for a response he yelled to his wife "Hey Delores! Write these guys a check for $980 will ya?" :D

    We walked out of there and burst out laughing. We certainly do have some good customers, and we're sure thankful for them. payup
