    at 12:15 last night. My phone ringer stays on low after hours, got up wondering why someone would call and leave a message that late.

    It was a lady looking for a plowing estimate.... Ok fine....

    I call her back a little after 8am the next morning and she already found someone, LOL.:dizzy:

    I'm used to getting calls for estimates in the evening but midnight seems a little late. Maybe she works a late shift. But I don't think I'd get out of bed, either.

    I got a call back from a lady after we gave her an estimate for lawn care. She called at 2:08AM! WTF can you say "code 10":dizzy: I probably would have flipped out, I hate being woke up in the middle of the night unless its for an emergency or for plowing.
