    Pulled up in front of a customer house this morning and there was this new LCO doing my lawn. Hey! I think you've got the wrong house guy. " Nope! I'm cuting it now, you're fired" This is news to me, Mr Numnuts never said anything about letting me go. I've worked this property for 2years with out a problem, other than the fact that he was a very, very slow payer. I stood there for a second, smiled and said he's all yours. Thats the first time I've ever been fired by another LCO. You gotta love this business! :rolleyes:

    I would certainly be talking to the homeowner about it. Find out what happened.

    I've had that happen to me. I think you were lowballed by the LCO and the homeowner wasn't man enough to tell you. If the homeowner was a slow payer he's probably a cheapskate looking for the lowest price he can find. You don't need or want those types of accounts anyway.
