!800 got junks

So I had a customer a week ago,she was happy with the price over the phone, pulled up went to the door, and she said where is your truck.
I said in the street, She started yelling why dont you have a 1800 got junk truck.. I said im not them. She said i know why are you not Professional and have one of there trucks. ? I said I can haul more then them they have 10 yards max, i can carry upto 20, and upto 3-4-5 customers at a time. She said im not doing business with someone that pulls up in a trailer.

I said My trailer is just as much as there little truck, does the same, i just pull mine ..

You have no decals on your trailer.. they are on my drivers door, and my rear topper window is a see threw window.. Im just going to hire 1800 got junk, I dont want my neighbors thinking im having construction done!

LoL.. Oh Man i was about to tell her there was a 30.00 service call just cause she wasted 30 mins of my time..

I would be extremely impressed if someone showed up in that metro for a trash out. I'd be so impressed, I would watch the entire job, just to be amused lol.

We don't have ANY lettering on our trucks. We do not wear company shirts or anything with a logo either. We do not want people knowing who we are.

I would have told the lady she owed me for the visit.

Two reasons I started my own business-
I don't work well with authority figures.
The customer isn't always right, and I like to say so.

Do you find yourself telling them they are wrong more often? I can't figure out if I'm just getting crankier as I get older or if people are getting dumber. Probably both.......

I recently switched my trucks to commercial and I've been hesitant all of these years because of the lettering issue. Unfortunately in NJ to dump legally you need to register with the DEP and get decals. So I finally pulled the plug because dumpsters are expensive. I got away with just putting my company initials and the city and state I am registered in. If you try to search my company with google or the yellow pages or some other type of search you come up empty handed. NJ requires lettering on all commercial vehicles.

I had burned thru all the episodes of "Hee Haw" on my DVR one weekend and found some reality show about backwoods boys in Kentucky drilling for oil.
One old boy on the porch of his double wide was talking about hitting the big one and if he did, that would be "F U money".
So I started thinking-
For a bum it might be $20. Then again, it may have been $20 for Trump too.
The number is different for everyone, but you know what it is when you hit it.

I've definitely gotten grumpier. No question about it. I can't stand even seeing the neighbors start walking my way.
