    Sorry I was in a silly mood and thought it would be hilarious to ask this question.

    I mean, im sure there would never be a reason to to cry in front of a customer. For example if the she told you, that the work was not done to satisfaction, and you break down in tears. Or if they said your mowers and truck look ugly, and you start crying.

    For some reason, that scenario would be hilarious to me.

    Ok im done.

    Lets Say you forget to put your parking break on the truck and for some freaky reason your truck, trailer, and All your equipment just rolls off the cliff and explodes.

    And when you get home you fine that your insurance company is no longer in business. I might consider, but other than that nope!

    Hey, if it helps land you the job, go for it!

    Customer, "I'm sorry. I am just so confused. My husband used to handle all the yard care before the cancer got to him....boo...hoo..."

    You, "Oh my gosh. My sister died of cancer just last month! Oh, it was terrible...boo...hoo..................group sob........Ok. So back to your landscape!..."

    Well i did once, when i told her we were there early because i was going out of town for my moms funeral. but on the lighter side, i also did swear alot at that lawn when i somehow went over the seawall into tampabay. I really dont know how, but at least it was just me, and not the mower.
