I went to go collect some money today from a winter client.

Client invited me into their home. I HATE THAT, then you know you're going to have to sit down and chit chat forever. lol.


Me: So you said you couldn't find our tax number on the invoice? Check the bottom left.

Client: Oh I see, right here. Good.

*20 mins of small talk later*

Client: Can you come by next week and do a cleanup for me?

Me: You already hired another company for spring and summer, didn't you?

Client: Yes.

Me: Aren't they doing your spring cleanup?

Client: Yes, they will do it. But can you come and do it next week?

Me: ... They are going to come after me to do the spring cleanup?

Client: Yes.

Me: So I'm going to do a spring cleanup, and they are going to do the spring cleanup right after me?

Client: Yes, because I don't know when they will start.

Me: We will both be likely to start our spring cleanups sometime in April.

Client: I would like for you to do it next week.

Me: You will have to wait until April, when I have my equipment ready.

Client: Ok.

Me: The other company isn't going to like this.

Client: No, they are going to do the spring cleanup after you.

Me: ... Ok.

Client: So come next week.

Me: April.

Client: Ok.

^ Welcome to my town.

"Well if I pay you $20.00 and advance you $50.00 you can cut my lawn yesterday so it will look good tomorrow"

"Please mow my lawn mow it every other day as the other guy mows it on the even days .but remember to mow it clock wise or the grass

Oh gosh! Why did that client and you initially part ways? Why do they have another lawn care service?
