    stopped at a customers house to mow. she was outside telling me i over charge by one mowing. and i left the fence 1" too high when i left last time. also, as i mowed she continued to tell my trimmer guy to trim here and there at lease 4 times. how would you guys handle this customer?.

    If she is a PITA, drop her. Not worth the hassle.

    Drop her like a bad habbit. Tell her go back in the house, we know what we're doing and tell her to not come out when the equipment is running.

    Did you overcharge her? What do you mean you left the fence 1" too high and is your trimmer guy missing spots?

    the back yard is fenced in. i can not get my mower through the gate. so, the customer told me to disassemble 2 fasteners and peal back the fence to get in. after i leave to re-assemble it. appears the fence was 1" higher than the rest. the trimmer guy is doing a great job.

    That math doesnt add up 4 mows, she say you mowed 1 time, that leaves 3 but she said you overcharged by 1. Between this and having to disassemble a fence to get in the back yard, I think its time to part ways here unless you cant eaT If you loose this yard
