    lol yesterday i just passed out about 500 flyers and today i have gotten three phone calls. The first call, the first thing the guy says is my flyer is terrible because it doesnt have pricing on it LOL then he got mad at me because i couldn't give him a exacte quote for cleaning his flower beds and re mulching them, i told him i had to come out and measure the beds up to figure out what i was looking at, he got mad and said because i couldnt give him a exacte quote over the phone that i must not know what i a doing LOL...people just keep surprising me more and more everyday i swear. Atleast the other ones turned out to be good:usflag:

    i get surprised at the fact that i still get surprised at some of the things i hear from people.

    lol, try figuring that one out. ive actually hung up on a lady a couple times only to have her call me back thinking we got disconnected and continue her rant on how to mulch her beds properly.

    lol! Now THAT'S a correct quote.

    Don't sweat it Crimson. Don't even give that moron a second thought. EVERYBODY in this business eventually comes across these IDIOTS.

    Just move on... :walking:

    Next time, pass out 1,500 fliers. You get it..
