I, like the idiot I am, got recommendations from my lawn mower guy for the tree removal. They are neighborhood guys and they both stopped by and I showed them the trees... that's fine but now I'm in the yard and I get honked at by these guys urging me to make a decision cause the dead tree is about to drop. The dead tree has been dropping for the three years I've been here .. I know about the slow but
imminent drop of the tree. Why do you think I'm working in the yard..? Maybe the tree will drop on me and then I don't have to make a decision about the trees. Leave me alone. 

Anyways.. How's your negotiation skills cause you get to make the deals. I want this shit done but I'm stuck again cause the price doubled. Will it go back down? Who knows..? Sam suggests waiting till December cause the prices will drop with little to no work around the holidays.


Mr. Larry 
- mower recommendation
- hasn't said any prices
- in a drive by conversation on 5/6
  - can take the dead tree down fast if you want to do that first 
- I like this guy, he seems calm and deliberate
- doesn't know my name or yours

Ronald Sanders
- mower recommendation
- I like him but too much pressure about the dead tree
 - he did say he'd take it down fast for $1000
- I'm Sullie (but he thought I said Sally) and you're Mindy


- Mindy
- I like him
- I'm Sullie and you're Tanya

- Mindy
- I like this guy
- told me how power works
 - the electric company picks the day - they'll disconnect it in the morning and roll the line back to the poll - when done, call and they are ready to reconnect
- I'm Sullie and you're Tanya

- Mindy
- Yup I like this guy too
- I'm Sullie and you're Tanya

Call these guys and see if they want to renegotiate the job now that you're in charge. Their new prices will give us a good impression of the inflation. OR pretend they should be a couple dollars more but not double :0
