    Went out yesterday to pass out some flyers. While I was doing this neighborhood I ran across a guy bent over doing some work on a gutter, just thougt he was the home owner. Went up and said I was just passing out some flyers in the neighborhood for lawn service. He then jumpes up and said he was an LCO and did not want to see the dam flyer and that he was sick of seeing people out going door to door like me. I then relize I know the guy, he cuts my old neighbors lawn. He did not relizes who I was though. I told him I was sorry and told him that he did not need to be an A#%. I then left. Later on I was thinking about this and came up with a good idea. I went to my old neighbors house and explained the story to her and picked up her lawn. She told me that when he called to start up this season she was going to tell him that she did not want an A#% to cut her lawn and she was going with someone else. HAHA

    Some people forget that customers are the reason we eat with out costomers there is no need for us. Treat everyone you deal with, with respect I have elderly customers that I will have out with for a half hour or so Just so they can talk, dont think I dont make them the last cut of the day though. LOL
