    Customer: "Sorry it's been so long getting back to you on your contract proposal. I've been real busy at work. I really like the proposal and the way you lay everything out. My neighbor's lawn looks SO nice, I finally decded to hire you. I don't like making monthly payments though."

    I'm thinking, well that's just too bad....

    Customer: "So I wrote out a check for THE ENTIRE YEAR and dropped it in the mail to you. Can you start cutting May 1st?"

    "Yes mam, thank you, mam.



    People never cease to amaze me.

    God is good.

    I had a few customers do the same thing. We've been meeting with all our customers trying to sell them to the idea of a monthly contract. One guy sat there pondering then said "Lets see, 140 times 7 is what, $980? Tell you what, you mind if we just pay you that up front?" Then without even waiting for a response he yelled to his wife "Hey Delores! Write these guys a check for $980 will ya?" :D

    We walked out of there and burst out laughing. We certainly do have some good customers, and we're sure thankful for them. payup
