Yea, I do things like leave the trimmer running while she is talking, I slowly begin walking away while she goes on about how we need some rain this year, or I even tell her I gotta get going to try to get home to see the kids but she still will not release me. So i smile and nod untill she finally takes a breath and then i book, I get the hell out of there. I've lost at least 6 minutes listening to the chit chat so that means I've lost at least 6 dollars ( and probably much more). And I wonder how many clients will be home for the remainder of the day. It is a Saturday so that means more contact with my good people. I am ok as long as I do not add up the dollars that I have lost at the end of the day. I am ok.
