Yesterday morning I get a call from a woman who wants me to come out and give her a price for a leaf cleanup. She tells me that she needs the work done and would like me to come out as soon as possible and because she tells me that she has gotten my number from a family friend I head over to her house as soon as I get off the phone with her. As I'm driving out to her place I'm thinking that this job is going to suck due to where its located and the amount of trees that I know are in the area. As I pull up in front of the house there are hardly any leaves visible, only a few here and there. When she answers the door I introduced myself and she begins giving me the riot act. Telling me that she had called me 3 months ago and that I never showed up and that it was unacceptable for me to show up now to give her a price. Mind you, I've have never spoke to this woman before yesterday morning. I explained that I was the guy SHE had called just a few minutes earlier and she apologized saying she thought that I was someone she had called months earlier. She then tells me again that she wants the yard cleaned up within the week so I take a quick look around. Then head back to the door and speak with her again and give her my price. First she asks me if I have all the equipment to do the job or if I'll have to use hers. I guess she didn't notice the truck and trailer parked in front of her house with my equipment on it. Secondly she informs me that the leaves at her house get very deep in the fall and she doesn't think that I've bid her yard high enough. I explain to her that the bid was for the current condition of the yard, not a bid for eleven months from now and that I would have to return to give her a bid then. This woman at first acts as though she understands but keeps telling me she wants a bid for when the leaves fall off NEXT YEAR. I never was able to get her to understand that there is no way I could accurately bid her yard for next years work without seeing what type of condition it is in. Even telling her that it would be like her asking a body shop to give her an estimate for an accident that hadn't happened yet didn't seem to make any sense to this woman. Oh well, guess I'll just chalk this one up to a learning experience and pray she doesn't call me back.
