    Thought this was cute was talking to a friend of mine today on our cell phones he runs a landscaping company as well our areas overlap so we throw each other jobs from time to time we often chat as we drive from job to job during our work day. Any ways he tells me today he had a contract for a lawn cut come in last Friday so July 29 2005 but the contract was dated 2003. So he is like who the hell is this took him a while to track it down but it turns out it was a lawn estimate he did in April of 03 and they just finally signed it and sent it in talk about thinking it over. I wonder if it was a good price gas was a dollar a gallon cheaper back then.

    So I guess I have never failed to make a sale some of them are just still pending LOL.

    He said he is going to do the lawn so I guess he is ok with the price I do wonder if they pay as slow as they think things over glad it isn't me :D
