    To me anyway this was one funny phone call.

    A lady calls the office about 11AM this morning and I answered the phone.....here is the what happened...


    ME: MMLAWN

    Her: Yes, I'd like to have my lawn cut at 2:00PM today.

    ME: Excuse me (really confused sounding...cause I was :laugh: )

    Her: My lawn...I'd likke to have it mowed at 2PM.

    ME: Are you one of our clients?

    Her: No

    Me: Have we ever cut your lawn?

    Her: No

    Me: We only do lawns by contract, but we also are not accepting any new residential clients, but I can recommend another local company, but they will require a contract also.

    Her: Oh, no I only want it cut this one time.

    ME: and at exactly 2PM? (playing with her now :laugh: )

    Her: Oh,yes

    ME: Sorry, we can't help you.

    Her: Oh......okay



    DANG, it was like she was just ordering a pizza or something....:laugh:
