Recently sent out letters to all my customers detailing how leaf removal works and the charges for it. Also, told them I would be more available for other kinds of work as the grass winds down. So today, this one lady comes out, asking about cleaning up all her beds. "But your rates are too high. I can pay you XX per hour". The hourly charge she so generously offered to pay me, well, I could get that much easier working at the mall. I started to look around. Figure William Shatner must be hiding somewhere in the yard. I mean, I must be on one of those Priceline.com commercials, right? "NAME YOUR OWN PRICE FOR LAWNCARE!" And where's Mr. Spock when you need him? He coulda done that trick with his fingers to incapacitate this PITA customer. I think we figured she could afford for me to pull weeds for 15 minutes, tops. I know somebody else must have cheapskate customers like this too.
