Lets get some reactions to the following potential clients oddball Conditions, and who, and who would not take this potential plum account. Keep in mind this man cannot be dissuaded. So unwashed masses, what would your reactions have had been. My wifes has attorney friend, and her father needs lawn service for 2006.after listening to how he gets inferior service, incompetent LCOS etc etc , she asked us to talk with him. We arranged the talk; and the area is in one of our areas of operations. As we started to talk, it became apparent he was less concerned about price, and more concerned about several conditions, which he demanded our workers would have to adhere to. 1 No power string trimmers to be used ---his fear is, he informs me the trimmers will ruin his foundation, garage, etc. In addition, the back has stockade fencing. He wants some kind of old-fashioned hand snipers used. 2-The lawn, about 18k sq ft of turf, must be cut using a 21-inch mower. 3-A sidewalk runs though the back lawn, the workers under no circumstances can walk on; push a mower over etc- etc. 4-an area in the back directly behind what he called his rocking chair deck, about 1000 square feet, must be mowed using an old time reel non-powered push mower. 5-Under no circumstances can the workers enter the back from the front gate, nor enter the front from the back. They must enter the back from an alley gate. 6- No power hedge trimmers to be used on a sh!tload of yews and various other bushes when hedges are trimmed. I envision this man to be a pita of epic proportions, one that would watch every move of the workers. The account will pay 100% more for 100% more time.
