Bobby, I think some of the PITA's you have to deal with up there are migrating down this way. Check this story out.... Then he goes on telling me this long story about how much he loves his new lawn and how it was so thick that he burnt up his mower trying to cut it and had to go borrow one to finish what he did... yada, yada.... and how it was so thick that no weeds were in it, and starts hinting about about the name of the products I used, trying to get me to tell him. So he says, we can probably skip this week coming up, mow the whole thing and catch up the parts he didn't mow to even it out with the rest. Then he tells me he wants me to sow these other areas he has ready out near the woods and around back. I say OK that area is the same size as what we done last fall, so I'll do it for the same price less the aeration since it's ready. But it's getting late for this so sooner the better how about we do that this week and a fert app on the entire property. I'll mow next week. He says well.... I don't need any fertilize in the new turf areas, I put out that weed-n-feed stuff I had in the basement. Strike Two! I say "what??? I told you to wait on that and let me take care of things so no new seedlings are killed!" He says yeah I was going to ask you to put some seed here and there because a few areas on the fringes are thin. So we go through that whole deal back and forth. Then I tell him OK, same price as last year minus fert for the new turf areas and aeration. He beats around the bush and gives me the impression that now somehow that seems a bit steep to him. I just nip the ramblings in the bud and repeat the items less the others and the price. Then I explain how the whole job is going to be a dead run just for him... so it will be $. So he says well for that couldn't I get the app, install and a cut? I say I could do that, just know I can't guarantee that I'll be able to get the entire lawn due to the fact that I'm not certain the machine I tow the spreader with will be able to cut one area without getting stuck and I don't have room to haul the whole fleet down. He says "well I'd want to be sure the whole thing was cut." I'm thinking dang, he's so worried all the sudden bout everything being cut when just a few minutes ago he was telling me I think we can skip this week and wait to catch it all up nest week??? What? Penny pinching! So I offered to bring the other mowers to cut it all and push spread the apps for a few bucks extra to cover my time and the physical labor involved in having to push spread everything. Now at this point he goes and grows a pair the size of bowling balls and says to me.... "just go ahead and skip coming this week. For that, just go ahead and pick up the seed and fert for me and I'll pay you $ for them when you come to mow. I bought a new little spreader to put that weed-n-feed out with, so I can just put out the seed and fertilize and myself. STRIKE THREE! YOU'RE OUTTA HERE! At this point I was just beside myself. I knew if I stayed on the phone and talked to this guy any longer I would just completely loose it. Still in shock I just said, "listen I'll call you back the first of next week and well talk more then" and I hung up. It's been almost a week now and I've not cooled down one bit. In fact the more I think about it, the madder I get! The nerve of some people! I wonder if he would try that with the Chinese food delivery? He calls up and says, yes I'd like some chicken fried rice, and a soda.... and I'd like that delivered. The Chinese guy says OK your total will be $6.73. Then he says to them, listen for that much just bring me the soda, that's $1 and just go ahead and bring me the ingredients and recipe for the chicken fried rice. That's what $3 total? I've got a wok here so I can cook it myself. I think he'd still be waiting on that delivery, don't you? How would you all handle this?
