OK here is a good laugh for Friday night (well after I got over the inital shock). Have a older lady that is my last bad PITA who had a shrub job from h*ll and I knew if I quoted her a price (about 35 hours worth) she would go beserk and yell. Her hubby always told me that if I do anything over 50 bucks to come tell him and he will pay the bill. I go by his office and tell him his wife is on my azz and I knew if I quoted her at least 1400 bucks she would freek. He tells me not to do it and will get his employs to do it. I go today to do the yard and she comes out rasing h*ll , said her husband told her I did not want to do the shrubbery for her. I thought for a second how to handle this and I told her that her husband was going to get his employs to do it. She said that was BS and I had enough and told her it would be about 1400. WHAT!!!***(**&*&*&*&, such language from a old lady. I just laugh at her and told her I knew that was the way she would react. I cant afford that she yells (they are very weatlhy). I tell her well thats to bad and leave. She calls my cell about 3 hours later and asks me if she could borrow all my equiment and she would do it herself and haul if off. After regaining my composure I asked her if she was joking and she said no! I told her I would not loan my equipment out to her or anyone, she then asks to rent it and I tell her sure, for 1400 dollars you can rent it Huh, what, thats what you charge to do it. I said thats right, would you like me to do it now while its over 100 degrees and that price is only good today since I see gas just jumped a dime. Click goes the phone. What the h*ll are people thinking! I did not appreciate her husband lying to her, man has no b*lls at all. Bad thing about it is when/if I move she in only 2 house down from me. When I went by the house I saw her trying to do them with hand shears and she was looking rough in that nice heat Some of the shrubs have not been trimmed in over 10 years to.
