    Sounds like a real dooshnozzle. I would tell him $100 just to show up and look. $200 an hour if I decide to do it. 4 hour minimum up front cash money, no checks.

    Well shoot, that sounds to me like you need to ask for money up front because you have to start today.

    Keep us posted. You might need help collecting.

    Any idea on what the job is ?

    I got one of those for a fall clean up late this year through my website.
    I need you to come clean my leaves today. I have company coming over and the yard is full of leaves and looks terrible.
    Sure let me cancel everything and take care of that for you. People kill me

    We had a similar one, and a wet fall. Had a hard time getting our contracted customers done much less some idiot that called in and wanted it done that day.

    I hope this was an appropriate use of idiot.

    That looks like such a good account to pick up, I might be willing to commute to get it.






    NOT.

    (PS, if you pick up the account, be sure to add on an extra $10.00 for Round Up in the street). :laughing:
