    so, i gets a call. i mosey on over, it's for mowing only. i give a quote, she signs on the spot. then, she sends me across to her neighbor. this is what the lady said, " it's not that i'm terribly unhappy with my current lawnguy. i've used him for 6 years. it's just that, i owe him so much money in back payments, i just want to cancel him, and start out fresh with someone new, before i rack up an even bigger bill with him." would you?

    Make her pre-pay. She is right across the street from your new account...

    That is funny. I wouldn't start off a conversation with "I owe him so much I want to screw him out of it and hire someone else, and then do the same thing again". Some people are just too much.

    yes, she probably is for real.... i wouldnt touch her w/ a 10ft pole, prepay or not, she needs to learn that she cannot STEAL from ANY service provider without concequences. It just shows you of how low peoples perception is of the commom lawnboy.

    I think that statement basicly means: Would you bend over now for me please, I really don't wanna wait to stick it to you good! Did she have a broom handle in her hand when she said that????

    LOL, you gotta be kidding. The sad part is she says she's so far behind and her current lawn guy continues to mow for her. What's his problem?
