On the one hand you got the customer who has basically dirt and weeds who doesn't give a crap and won't spend a dime to improve it and on the rare occasion you get the special nutcase who thinks that for 50-60 bucks you can turn THAT into the lush green of a golf-course, overnight would be nice. Then you got the exact opposite nutcases who call for a complete re-vamp of the lawn and they're willing to spend money and talk about how bad it looks and I race out there thinking FINALLY I'm going to get some work, but when I get there the lawn is A+++ impeccable and I gotta walk through with a magnifying glass to spot the weed variety which supposedly drives them crazy... And not to say there is nothing I can do BUT I have to inform them their lawn is about as good as it is going to get, sheesh... Of course, NOW is the time of year the cutiepies with their last-minute long-term lawncare contracts want to hop on the bandwagon because you realize that in about a month AND after you get to cut the grass once MAYBE twice, they would like you to take care of the leaves and oh by the way, do NOT for one minute believe the promise of them being your grass-customers all NEXT year. Out of the three the first 2 frustrate me but the last kind downright pisses me off, that takes a lot of nerve to come around with that kinda crap when they know d@mn well they're pulling a fast one. Of course my favorite is to cut the grass once or twice and then when it comes time to do the leaves they get surprised with the high estimate (not because I make it so but for some reason THESE particular folk ALWAYS want the leaves hauled!).
