I had a call today that went like this: me: Hello, xyz lawn service dumblady: Do you cut Grass? me: yes dumblady: How much do you charge? me: I don't give prices over the phone but I'd be happy to come and look at the prop. and then give you a price. dumblady: How come you don't give your price now? me: There are too many variables. dumblady: OK, we were just price shopping. me: Have a nice day .....click She made it sound like she had called a few other LCO's and they gave her a price over the phone? Does anyone really do this?
