    a funny thing happened to me this morning. we've been getting a big response from our paper add, so we are running around like nuts trying to do estimates and keep up. well, i gave this lady a quote 2 and a half weeks ago, and kinda didn't get to her job yet, and......lost the house number. had the street name, but not the house number. so, i call her, "hi, mrs. so n so, bob here, from xyz landscaping, we are on our way over to clean your leaves. only one problem, i have the street name, but seemed to have lost the house number." so, she says, " o, bob, that guy who was here like 18 days ago, and said he would get to me real soon? i dont think 18 days is real soon bob. so let me see if i have this right, u know my street name, but not my house number?" i say, "well, that's right mam." she says, " well, ill tell you what, since u know the street name, just do every house on the block! and when you get to mine, i'll pay you. CLICK! i just had to laugh.

    save the # and in about 8 weeks or so when your bored and drinking coors light call her and say who you are, then tell her, see how bad i need money from people like you, or something to that effect. Yes it may not be professional, but it will make you feel good, and will be a great thread for us to read when its slow.

    take the phone # and look in your phone book where they are listen in numeric order and find her address, or call the NON-EMERGENCY 911 number and give them the # and see if they can give you an address

    Reverse phone directories work like a charm. Time to go to Staples for an organizational seminar.
