Ok some may get on me for this but read carefully. I have been in this business for 19 years and this is the first time. This guy called me a few weeks ago and said hey you take care of my neighbor a few houses down and I am going away for two weeks would you cut mine? I said no problem and he gave me the dates July 14 and 21!! I wrote them down on my schedule sheet and put it on the board in my truck (right after the phone call). Well Thursday I was pruning at a large complex I maintain and my wife calls me. This guy calls from up north just raising all kinds of h3ll with her. I mean cussing and such. He said that I was supposed to cut him on the 7th. I pulled my sheet and said nope not what I have. Anyway I taled to another neighbor of his and not my client and he said don't cut unless I hear from him as the guy called him and said he was going to get someone else. I said no problem as I was booked through Sat. and I cut that area on Mondays so to go Sun. would not make sense. Well today the ahole called and he was coming home from his vacation (on schedule) and not to cut it Mon. and all the while cussing a few times at me. So finally I had had enough. I told him that I did not like the way he spoke to my wife who does not handle any of my business affairs and that he could F---off and hung up. He called back and left a message on my machine telling me how he was going to tell all his neighbors. And that he wanted to say that I was an A$$hole. My wife and I laughed as I said I already knew that. As you can tell I am very worried as I think his neighbors know how he is. In 19 years of business I have never failed to cut someone that I promised I would do a job for them, NEVER! Just though this was kind of funny as I have never done this before and he just caught me at the wrong time saying the wrong things to my wife and me. So go ahead all you guys who think I was wrong and let me have it.
