With all these types of clients, you should change your name to "Short Bus Enterprises".

It was this client I talked about before LINK

It's funny how she's already causing problems, and I somehow still got stuck with her. I wasn't even interested in taking her this year because we have already gotten into so many shouting competitions with each other.

The lawn is so easy to do, but;

1. The lawn is bad luck, something breaks every time we arrive to do it.
2. She's out to make our lives hell.

I think one of your customers lives here now.

Yesterday I got a voicemail for an estimate from an elderly man. Of course, no address given, just some mumbling about "grass cutting" and a phone number.

I called back today. It was like I was talking to a wall. "Are you looking for regular service?", I asked.



"Well..., I don't know - maybe..."

"I'll stop to look on Monday", I said. Ugh.
