The lawnman's "one more" rule goes like this: "Mister (or Lady) if you plant one more stinkin' shrub I gotta weedeat around, or put out one more tacky lawn ornament, or do something that causes one more riding mower area to become a walking mower area, or that causes one more walking mower area to become a trimmer area, you get yersef another lawn boy! "The principle behind the "one more" rule is as follows: You got the right to put any stupid thing you want in your yard. I got the right to care for only those lawns I can do in an amount of time commensurate with the rate I am charging you. And further advance notice will not be given for invoking the "one more" rule." This has come about because of about 7 customers, who are always out piddling and diddling in their yards plantin stuff where no one else would think it looks good, and these are all among the customers I just raised the price on beginning of the season. So I kind of feel like raising the price again would just lose the customer anyway. Actually, it occurred to me I would send that notice to all 73 of my customers, and tell them "some of them" are on the "list" and see how many just drop me--cause I got too much to do anyway. Not really, but I would rather vent here than to my dear sweet customers!
