    This isn't a technical topic but was wondering if anyone has made up nicknames for there clients? Some that come to mind for me are----

    Icecream Lady- Lady would bring out icecream on a silver platter

    Icecream Man- Icecream ladies brother

    Sleepy- Old man would watch us mow from his front porch, only
    to fall asleep

    Trouble- If we mowed this guys yard after 2pm, he would be
    sauced and would want to help us work. Needless to
    say, he was put on a morning schedule!!!

    OTD = Older than dirt. I know its not really nice but this lady tells me take care of her lawn like 7 times in one conversation. I usually have to say alrighty then and act like she's not talking and just walk away. She has to be in her late 90's. I'm probably going to end up doing this ---> :blob2: for eternity for thinking bad things about her.

    Pack rat - the old lady goes around town looking for deals on anything she can find...even if she doesn't need it. She has TWO cars filled with junk, everthing from A-Z. I guess after she filled up the one car, she just went and bought another. When she drives it the bumper about scrapes the ground because it's so weighted down.
