    I just did a cleanup for this old lady who can't drive, and can barely see or hear. As I was writing some information down she muttered something about her age, and then said "It's hell being old". Then an old man who I did a lawn estimate was talking with me and I mentioned that I graduated college last year (the same college he retired from) and he then asked if I was married. I said "no" then he said "well how did you escape"!!!
    Just though those were funny. Anyone else have good quotes from people on the job?

    I helped this old lady with something this week, and she said "Im sorry for being so stupid" I started to reply "no problem" but stopped myself. What do you say to that? It did make for some laughs the rest of the day.

    Ha, that reminds me of this lady that said something like. "I'm too old to do all this stuff" without even thinking I was like "yeah" like I was agreeing with her (she really was, but I would NEVER tell her that!). I think she was hard of hearing because she didn't say anything.

    "good work isn't cheap, and cheap work isn't good" old man told me once. He had a very successful welding biz.
