    Bid a clean uo job about 3 weeks ago , finally got to do it on Friday. It took roughly 50 minutes with 3 guys for $85. Got the check right after we were finished already put it in the bank.

    Job included 1st mowing of the year ( all chickweed & henbit), 10,000 sq ft, corner lot, trim edging and clean up of the car port roof of sticks, a pile of leaves and blowing out of 2 flower beds.

    My wife just called today and the old nut said we didn't mow it and wanted me to call back. Then 30 minutes later she called back and said she is mowing now, since we didn't mow it.

    Can't wait to talk to her this afternoon.

    Should have know better: she griped about last year's mower, said I was too high on bi-weekly mowing, said SHE WAS 80 something

    thank Goodness that I kinda enjoying firing customers like this

    Fire her and move on or talk a camera with you. Before and after pics with date and time for PITA's customers.

    Also later you can use the pictures for advertising.

    Maybe she is just lonely.

    Unfortunate with the older generation. Seems they want to talk forever or you did it too fast (they were used to the husband spending half a day out there)
