did 2 quotes this morning. leaf cleanup in very rough areas. i quoted them both at $350 each. both parties showed interest, but were obviously turned off by my request they sign an "authorization to proceed with service" form. more commonly known as a contract. one guy stated that he is paying cash, and doesn't see any need for the "authorization form." i said great, i'll take that now then. he just looked at me funny. i left both houses with a , "i'll call you back". i don't think i'll hear from them again. did i lose 2 jobs, or did i save the hassle of collecting on a couple of deadbeats?
