    Has anyone else noticed that most of the general public think they are the only people you service ?.

    How far have you gone to appease these people ?

    Some customers want your arms and legs to fall off before you stop coming

    I had a few of these type of customers in the Sandbanks area of Poole, extremely expensive houses. I recently dropped them for this very reason. I do think they deserve one or two chances but when it gets to the stage that you are almost nervous of the greeting you are going to get then - No! As I've learnt from this forum, you soon replace them.
