New account. Picked her up this spring through one of my newspaper ads. She calls, and I arrive at her house within 20 minutes to give her an estimate. ( I was already on the road.) regular yard, not much trimming so I say 36.00. I tell her the way I mow which is 1. Bagless 2. Every 7 days until the growth cycle settles down (Late June) 3. I set my deck at 3.5-3.75 inches 4. I do not mow when it's raining 5. Pay me when i'm done Okay. First week. She said I mowed way too high and that it looked like it wasn't even mowed. Second week. Complained that now that I dropped the deck ( 2.75") theres all this grass laying around. There really wasn't I TRIPILE MOWED IT! Third week. Why are you here again, you were here just last week. I'm not paying every single week to mow this is outragous. Okay so now, I start pulling my hair out. It's raining cats and dogs and she wants me to mow at 2.75", every 10-15 days in the middle of biggest growth spurt since Gloria left "All in the Family". Fourth week. You'll really love this one. I mow her lawn on Tuesdays. So it's rained all week and it's friday and i call her. (I am not allowed to mow unless I call her first) I say, "Hi XXXX, since it's stopped raining , I thought I would come over and mow. I would suggest though that I mow it a little higher today and then come back and mow again on Tuesday at the height that you like. That way, you won't have a lot of grass laying around. She hit the roof. "Whhhhaaatt?? I'm not paying you to mow my lawn twice in less than 4 days, that's robbery!! You come over and mow it at the right height and leave it at that. Just keep mowing the lumps up till their gone." I try to explain that shes really paying the same since I didn't mow last tuesday...no luck. So, I mowed...at 2.75. Grass must be 8 inches? It looks like hell. I mowed it 3 times and there is still grass turds all over the place. I collect my check. I told her that I did'nt think things were working out and that I would mow next week and then that was it. She handed me my check and slammed the door. I never raised my voice. Didn't swear...nothing. Got in my truck and left. I swear, if I make it to 70 and I act like that....shoot me.
