It's probably better to just tell the customer, "Sorry, it rained on your day and there is nothing I can do about it" than to kill myself by overworking.
I had a really irritating day today, a customer who thinks I run my business just for her and isn't afraid to waste any of my time until I give her what she wants.
I'm trying to get my damn lawns done, and she's wondering why I can't remove the thatch from her lawn and cut her grass, but before that "get a new lawn mower bag and come back before noon" because a tiny hole in the side of my current bag will cause her to have a heart attack if any grass/dust blows out from it.....
Not to mention, she's ALWAYS there watching me. I have to go 90% slower just so she doesn't freak out. It would take me literally 5 minutes to cut her grass but I'm always stuck there an hour or more. AND she's always trying to lower the cost of my service every month!
I wasn't going to take her this year, but I was too excited for the season and gave in. I regret it instantly. ALSO, she calls me every god damn day to re-schedule so that she's home when I arrive.
I'm going crazy. I will not take her next year.
