    The other day I went on an estimate for the whole package. Husband and wife come out. The wife is very nice and the husband is this I know everything type. He starts arguing with his wife when she asks me a question. He answers everything. I was like why the hell am I here!:walking: They will get the PITA tax built into their price.

    I'm sure we all dealt with this type.

    No price would be worth the hassle. We purposely quotes these customers higher or suggest other companies that may be better suited for their "very special" lawn. Did this just a few weeks ago. " We use pretty big mowers and cut real fast a beautiful lawn like this should be cut by an older gentleman on a tractor style mower". "We specialize in big, fast, not perfect lawns."

    I dont know why Husbands do this......

    I went on a bid like this and after the wife had enoulf she went into the house and the guy was very nice, I sat and had a cool drink with him and we talked for about an hour.... and RODFATHER is right, I have never seen the guy again, been cutting now for a month
