    You have to understand why he said that. He lives at his parents home in the basement and charges them to cut the lawn! :hammerhead:

    no I said that because I truly NEVER mix business with pleasure.

    getting a girlfriend or wife is not worth loosing a paying client to me. I'd rather keep them as a paying client rather than gain them as a partner and loose that money.

    I've had offers made for me to go on a date with a client before and I've turned down all of them.

    besides my parents I currently have a policy to NEVER work for friends or family as well. so if I did start dating a client she would then be on her own to get her lawn serviced.

    just my opinion tho. I respect his but am putting mine out there, that's all.

    With that attitude you are better off being single.

    I hope this isn't true...... Pleeeeaaaase tell me you are kidding?

    She's an x-ray tech surrounded by surgeons and people with more money than myself so maybe I'll land one as a customer to replace the precious $30 yard I lost. Of not, well atleast I won't be lonely. Lol

    She probably wouldn't date you very long after hearing you wouldn't cut her yard when dating.

    She offered to pay but I refused to accept it. I guess I was brought up in life with better morals.

    He also has said he never wants a wife or kids, that's why he wouldn't date a client.

    back to topic, I have my customers strategically placed so during the heat of the summer I am offered a cold beer at the later part of the day-gives me a chance to do a little PR, and the older clients always like the chance to chat.
