I had one client who sticks out in my mind as being picky. I worked for him for 1 year. Towards the end of the year I started complaining that I couldn't work for him again. I figured I would have blown a vein in my head or something. Every time I would work there, the guy would say it looks horrible. Keep in mind I cut this place 2x per week and bagged both times, took the clippings away, trimmed everything, edged what needed to be edged, blew off all the patios and what not, etc. Since the `99 season he has gone through 5 landscapers as far as I know. I took him over from a friend who had just come out of a bad divorce, I dropped it because the guy was too crazy even for me, this kid cut it the next year and he couldn't deal with the guy, another guy cut it last year and he couldn't deal with the customer... I believe midway through the season he actually told the guy to shut up or he would stop right then and there. The guy doing it this year, they have known eachother for a long time... so maybe he will last a little while???? FYI the client sent his own brother into a nervous breakdown.
