You gotta love this one......... one of my best paying mowing accounts lives directly accross the street, their a couple in there 8os. I get a phone call, they tell me there gonna hire this 14 year old kid they know at church to trim there hedges now, since they feel my hedge trimming price is too high. I say ok fine with me, since she always wants every single leaf picked up that falls into the beds, a real pita that is. i usually charge 25 an hour for hedges, so i feel like there doing me a favor hiring him. They call again, hey can we borrow your tarp? I say sure lol. The kid shows up on his bike, im out trimming my hedges at the time. They lend him a gas powered craftsman hedger, kid and the couple cant get it started, pulling on it for 15 minutes and no fire. Im watching and lmao while there diagnosing the 2 stroke problem, walk over there, kid never primed the bulb, gas is stale, wont even think of firing. You think we can borrow one of yours? they ask? lol, i wind up coaching this kid on how to start it how to restart ithow to opperate it and how not to cut his thinger off while trimming. he has those real baggy jeans on, that hang low. He cuts for 5 minutes and says there. hes done. Looks like a schizophrenic on acid trimmed these hedges. The couple say oh that looks wonderful lol. im speachless lol. I saved face to keep my lawn and gathered up the equipment, the kid says mr? I say yesss? you think next summer you might hire me? Uh sure kid maybe next year, wink, nod.
