    I was outside trying to adjust my rpm's (no reply to my earlier post :(. ) This lady drives by and stops to talk to me (lettering on my truck has paid off). Come to find out she needs some mulching done because her lco promised it a month ago and it's still not done. Then she says she's not happy with the way he's managing her lawn either, but she has a contract. I told her I will take care of the mulch for her, and next year I will be her lco. I assked her the name of her provider.......guess who? Same SOB that is going around cutting at 12.50!!!! (see previous post "12.50 a cut). I told her that her lawn would probably be 20-25 a cut. She said she doesn't care as long as it's done. :D:D :D :D

    Revenge is so sweeeeeet

    Next year is a long ways away.. I would have asked her to give the LCO two weeks notice now.

    Exactly. Most are 30 days notice or something but regardless, corral her now.

    She might forget who you are. Get her hooked now. Just tell her to give the dude the 30 days notice and your in now and next year.

    yup exactly what I would have done. I can't believe in the first place though that someone that charges $12.50 has a contract:confused:

    I myself got revenge on a scrub a couple weeks ago. I might have called the IRS on his behalf, but I'm not sure, as I have been known in the past to haleucenate. :rolleyes:

    I'll see what I can do to reel her in. By the way, she was my 5th and 6th grade gym teacher!!! I don't think she will EVER forget me. In the 6th grade we were playing indoor hockey and I was the goalie....had a shot hit me square in the berries:cry: She didn't even come out on the floor to get me...just waited for me to get up and go to the bench. I thanked her for not embarrassing me by coming out and she said she thought I wouldn't want that.....she was right!! :blush: I'll try to reel her in this week...
