An older lady had left a voice mail message asking that I come out as quickly as possible for an estimate. This is your basic mowing job and a no frills gig. According to county documents, the property was 1.76 acres. Subtract the house and massive garden, ¾ acres to mow at tops. She politely greeted me and explained the property boundaries while we toured the property. I asked as to why she was leaving her current lawn manager. She said he did not shown up for two weeks; did not call her; did not write to her and she wants a new lawn manager. Im thinking, this job would be a breeze on a weekly basis. I gave her my quote, which was $7.50 higher than she is currently paying. However she reiterated that money was not the object for not now accepting my offer. She went on to say that she feels guilty about having me come out and perhaps she should give her current man on mo try. I even offered to call the guy and tell him that I would be managing the property. I do believe that I will get the account. I just hope she has the same concerns for me when she fires my arse. This was a case of the ill-fated GRUDGE ESTIMATE.
