don't u just love when they pick apart the estimate, and try to nickle and dime you. got a call from a referel. he wants: spring cleanup, fert program, weekly mow, edging and mulching of beds. great, so i give him a package. you see, if i'm cleaning the beds, and mulching them, they don't have to be that clean. and since i'm making great time on the cleanup, i do the bed edging for a minimal fee, and since i'm doing everything at once, i'm still making great money on the visit. i would blow out the beds, edge them, mulch, do lawncut, and first application all the same day. so i leave him with quote, he waits 8 days to call back(at first, he was in a big hurry). then he calls and says, we just want the cleanup, bed edging, and mowing, but mowing only every 10-14 days. silence by me. sir, the prices were put together as a package deal, if we go ala carte, the fees increase. he says, well, i can't understand that. i just didn't want to deal with it. i was on my cell, told him i was losing connection, couldn't hear him, then hung up. WHY do they bother calling for service when they can't afford it, or just don't want to pay. i will not be talking with him again. you get people that do this?
