A client that I mow for called me and asked about shrub pruning. I told her that I was due to mow her that day and that I would look at them and talk with her. When I got there and started talking to her I noticed that she kept asking me specific questions about pruning methods. A flag went up . I cut the conversation short and told her to give me a minute or two to look at the shrubbery more closely and I would give her a bid. In my mind I was thinking about $150. This is where it went off the deep end. She said, "Oh, I don't need a bid. I know that I cannot afford you. But, there is a fella that does work for me and he said that he would use my electric clippers and do it for $30. But, I know that he doesn't know how to prune them properly but YOU DO. So, I figured I would ask you how to do it and then tell him." In all my years I would NEVER consider doing this. What are people thinking????
