this morning, phone rings. I ANSWER: GOOD MORNING, XYZ LAWN.... CUSTOMER: hi, u gave us a quote about a week ago of $35 to cut our lawn on a weekly basis. we thought the price was kind of steep, we are still price shopping, but meanwhile the grass is getting very tall, can you come by and cut it this one time for us?" ME: please hold. pins and needles, needles and pins, a happy man is a man who grins....trying everything ive got to refrain from telling this person where to go. ok, breath....SO, i tell her ill stop by and we will discuss it. i go over. she says can u cut it? i say sure. my man starts cutting, i start talking. she says shes had bids of $22, $24, $27. and is waiting on two more to call her back. i hand her copy of: my tax i.d number, my pesticide license, and insurance card. then proceed to inform her that before hiring a service, it would be in her best interest to ask for all of this. i cut the lawn, get paid, and go . i stop home, and guess what? there she is, on my machine: hi, bob, this is so and so. i took your advice, and we decided to sign on with you. we also need prices for fert program, and cleanup in fall. thanks. SO....TAKE THAT LOWBALLERS!!!!!!!
