Did you miss that little spot under that little bush way over there?

    I'm VENTING: Aaaarrrgghhh :dizzy:

    Did you miss that little spot under that little bush way over there? Oh, let me show you a few things - Are you going to remove these two blades of grass growing underneath the lines behind my air conditioner? You are going to check all of these cracks, right? That was included in Pedro's (the last guy) price. What about all this dog hair? Can you make sure and get the dog hair from behind the dog house? You might have to scoot it out a little. Oh yeah, I have a few little plants sprouting around the lawn - I want you to leave those - I built little wire covers for them - but be sure to weed-eat real close to them. You can get closer than that, right? Is that a weed? You will blow off the front porch too, right? Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....

    All for $35.00

    Ok... I feel better now.

    Sounds like someone needs to be drop kicked to the curb for good.

    Sounds like your life is about to take on a new dimension of misery. If you are going to keep her, go up drastically on your price and justify it by explaining to her that nit-picking costs.

    thank god i lost one of my PITA customers this season, no more "you missed that spec of grass over there" or "i don't think it really needs to be mowed" when it was due for a cut 2 days ago in reality.

    Next season I'm dropping my next PITA, a lovely indian family who has a tendency of not paying bills... (ain't that a surprise).

    Before i couldn't afford to turn work away, but now I'm picking my customers, they ain't picking me.
