    I thought one thread with all our customer quotes would be fun...here are mine:

    1. I'm never late with my payments, every time you send a late notice I pay it.
    2. there are alot of clippings, can you cut it shorter
    3. I asked you to come once every 2 weeks, why did you come 3 times this month?

    "Yea hi my name is xxxx, is this Peahly Bros. Landscaping?"- customer
    "Yes it is, how can I help you?"-Me
    "I'm not looking for a landscaper, I just need someone to mow my lawn, can you do that?"-customer

    This gave a good laugh since he asked for Peahly Bros. LANDSCAPING.... who was he expecting to find on the other end of the phone besides a landscaper?:hammerhead:

    At a retirement community:

    "Your guys were cutting down this street and missed my lawn" - We hadn't gotten to her house yet
    "Your guys didn't trim my back lawn" - Completely false
    "Your guys haven't blown off my patio yet" - Also completely false

    At an HOA:

    "You missed this spot in my back lawn" - Literally 6" of standing water back in the spring

    Probably the best, at an HOA when we were edging:

    "Please don't walk in my mulch beds when you edge. I have thousands of tulips that will die if you step on them....blah blah blah...Everybody here is tired of you guys trimming shrubs 3 times a year. This is a nice place. We'd like to have the shrubs fill out. We don't want this to look like a parking lot."

    What do you charge to mow yards?

    I used to punch everybody in the face who asked me that when I was self employed.

    Maybe that's why my business no longer exists.

    " Can you cut the lawn shorter? It looks like the blades of grass are bent rather than cut. That'd be great"..... while cutting Ryegrass at 1.75 .... >.<

    I'd like you to blow off your lawn mower before you cut my property to prevent any weeds from getting transfered to my lawn.
