I am so sick of tire kickers right now I can't see straight. I did a lot of advertising last year and a lot this winter and spring. About 2 weeks ago my phone started ringing like crazy....which is good....and I have made a few decent sales and added several App customers and a handful of mowing accounts but I cannot believe the number of tire kickers out there this year on small ticket items. The Indians have come out in force this year trying to play Lets Make A Deal (New Delhi version). I just hate it when I say "Green With Envy Lawn Care....May I help you" and I hear one of those thick accented SOB's on the other end. Today about 3PM my office phone starts ringing. I wonder to myself who would think a landscape business office would be open on Sunday, let alone Easter Sunday, but I walk downstairs and check the caller ID to make sure it is not a decent customer calling. The call comes up as blocked. I think to myself...just let it go to voicemail...but curiosity gets the better of me and I snatch up the receiver. Then some guy I can barely understand starts muttering some gibberish and I am like "Sorry sir could you please start over". He is like "we home today only you come to house and gives us dee estimates on de cuttings of mes grass". I am like.."well where do you live I can probably look at it on the Internet" it turns out to be way out on the far end of my service area. A neighborhood I hate to work in anyway...So I look at it and tell him $35.00. I have a couple real close by and I am thinking if I can land his postage stamp yard out there it will help round out that days route. He tells me "Internet no good...u need to come here today and look" I explained to him it was Easter Sunday and I was with my family and he was 45 minutes round trip from my house and I would come by there on Tuesday when I was in the area anyway...well this goes back and forth for a few minutes...him trying to convince me to come out there today...Then he starts in can I drop the price down to $29.00 cause he says he wants to show me 3 other estimates that were all $30.00 and says "u cut every 2 weeks for $29? Thats when he heard the click....It may not have been professional, but it sure made me feel good!! Just sick of tire kickers wasting my time and gas....particularly despise the foreign ones....Ok...my little rant is making me feel better already...thanks guys!!
