    Just wondering what all of you are thinking about asking out customers. I have done this a few times, sometimes it's resulted in a date, sometimes not. For the record, the current one "under consideration" (LOL) is a few years older than me, fairly good looking and dresses the part. She has been a customer for 14 years, and I often get the feeling she's hinting at it, from the very beginning when we chatted for 45 minutes after she asked for a quotation.

    Definitely ask her out. Who knows, could lead to her paying for lawncare with an "alternate" form of payment!

    There is an old saying - I don't get my honey where I get my money.
  6. Go ahead... They say most people meet their significant other through work..

    Well, in this business, "through work" means our customers...

    Sure, you can say it's unprofessional..... But who cares if you find someone you dig?

    And if it doesn't pan out, there's always another person wanting their lawn mowed....

    Get in is one thing, trying to get out afterwards is another thing. Might end up doing a lot of free lawns. "Sweedy, I need some mowing!!":laughing::laughing:

    Then I'll see how cool is that!!!:cool2::cool2:
