    don't ya love it when they come crawling back? so far i've had EVERY single customer who we parted on bad terms, come whining back to me, asking to be on the schedule. she was late on her bill. i called, no reply. i stopped service, and sent a letter stating so. 4 weeks later she calls wanting to know how come i havn't been there. i ask her, "did u get my phone messege? did u get my letter?" yup to both. ok, this is the way it's gonna go down: you send me the money you owe me, late fees, PLUS $30 a week for the missed cuts, and i'll be there. well, i got the money she owed, but not the $$ for the missed cuts. THEN, she calls for a leaf cleanup. i tell her, "sure...i'll be there :rolleyes: ". course i never showed. well well well, guess who called today, BEGGING to be put back on the schedule. yup, her. :nono: :nono: nope! you cannot kick it wit bobby, if u don't follow the rules. thank you for listening

    Nope, no free cleanups here.
    Someone has to be the lowest price and someone has to be highest. you just happen to be the low guy, nothing to be ashamed of, we all have our place on the food chain. It's either the low price they love, or maybe they like the chalk billing. ;)

    So the moral of the story is that your the only guy in NJ that can mow a lawn and make it look good? That doesnt say alot for NJ if that is the case.
