I get these type questions from neighbors, or sometimes somebody driving by, who actually stops and asks. I think they want to know if I am "too high" before actually getting me to give an estimate on their own property. And I hate these questions, and I always want to get right in their face, and say "None of your damn business!" but wouldn't want it to get back to my customer that I was rude to the neighbor. Who might be my customer's good friend. So I finally thought of a reply: "Why? Are you getting ready to write me the check?"
