    a guy called me saturday who saw my newspaper ad. he said he has a "yard guy" who bags his lawn per request, but drives a station wagon and can't haul off the clippings. he wanted me to haul them off, but not mow because he likes the regular guy. what a ******. of course i told him that i was unable to help, but did appreciate the call. i think i'm going to stop my ad next month as it has only generated three calls. two wackos and one, one-time job. fliers are working much better right now. (last month had 3% response rate which is double the norm).

    i guess "some men, you just can't reach"

    well..its big in Raleigh...ive picked up dozens of new clients...had a couple of cheapos....but 95% are willing to pay legit prices. Great thing about craigslist...it's free so you have nothing to lose. Just post an ad in the "houshold" or skilled services section. Worth a try for ya.
