    She starts out the call with,"I found you". and i reply with, who is this? she says , you gave me a estimate for mowing my lawn and i want service. I say O.k. so i'm looking in my book to see how much it was and i can't find her. So i tell her that i'm sorry wrong guy but i can give her a estimate. She says , You did!I say when cause i don't have you down. 3 years ago you gave me my estimate but what happen is that i fell and went into a Coma for 3 years and now i want your service.I say o.k. be there to give you a new estimate. I get there and she says here is your paper please do it for what you wrote down. I didn't know what to say ,she caught me off guard with the Coma stuff. so i gave in and i'm going to do her this year for the prize i quoted 3 years ago. It made her day!

    Once she sees the price of gas today vs. 3 years ago she will go back into a coma :laugh: Maybe get her to pre-pay for the year NOW :laugh:

    Tell her that when you gave her that price 3 years ago you came by and cut it once and never got payed. Hand her a new bill with 3 years of intrest added on. you should break even that way.
