Don't you just love it when you are asked to do a bid because the person asking saw the work on one of the yards that you do, so they call you out to thier home after you go thru the process of questioning them on the phone and determining that they may make good customers. Then you show up and the first thing you notice is that it appears that they fertilized the yard and that the tips of the grasses are black like they were charred or burned, the homeowner really isn't very clear to you as to what they did, and then they proceed to tell you that they won't need service till july, and that they also are getting 5(count them) five other bids! This was not what we discussed over the phone, and you have to wonder were you talking to someone else? So, I politely ask why they didn't explain this to me when I asked them if they were getting other bids and they said "no" on the phone that they wanted me to work for them...... But in reality, They were looking for the cheapest rate... So, I politely inform them that I am not interested in providing services for them and for them to have a good day, ( what I really wanted to say was kiss my *&^) but you just can't do that... not good for business. Besides, I picked up a real nice customer an hour later whose willing to pay me by the hour for work.
