    Just had a chat with a neighbor who I do for $20, 2ksq ft lazer, 1 min weedwhacking. First question, why does my lawn look so bad? Reply: Because there is no airflow and no sun at all. There are 4 trees that block the sun at all times. Then she went on about how she had it better before and I corrected her saying that before I aerated it and now she doesnt want to pay. Then she goes on about taking away the leaves and how it will take half a min. Reply: Then it takes an hour to dump and $$ to dump. The greatest answer ever, but it wont just be my leaves your taking, it will be everyones. So you want me to spend more time doing this. I gave her an example, McD's giving away hamburgers, one wont hurt them, but millions will. She said what this is in a book, how about practicality. I said I have taken economics courses and this is logic and practicallity. I then said that I have taken advanced: chem, bio and phyics and can back this up. Then I left. It feels good not to take any sh$t from any clients. Answer everything and then see what they say.

    Seems contrary to my other post, but there are 5 customers like this on my street, who I had from the beginning. The rest are different.
