    What a great experience today. One of my bi-weekly customers decided to say bah bye! I did a yard cleanup and gave an estimate upfront.

    When completed and after an outbreak of poison ivy, the customer decides to play a game of let's make a deal.

    Let's say a 100 yds of steep river bank of brush pile. 8 hours by myself and poison ivy. I quoted $300. I think extremely cheap but I did it for a senior.

    Grandpa comes out and says what's the charge? Told him agreement was for $300. I left 2 trees that I did not take down they were small, so I said $250. He said after you cut today we are done. I did a usual good job, collected and left with a big smile. :D
