Got a call from a guy the other day inquiring about carpet cleaning. First he wanted to know the cost. After his description I gave him a rough price of about $100.00. Then he asked me if I would consider doing it every two months. I said of course I would, and I asked where he was located. He was in another city about 40 miles from me. Seemed odd, because there are a lot of carpet cleaners there. Hmmmmmmmm.

Then he said that I would have to put him on a 30 day pay cycle. Finding this strange for such a small amount I asked him why.

He said that he was starting a couple of businesses out of his house and that is the way he would want to transact. He went on to say that is carpet was needing a cleaning in the worst way.

I asked what kind of businesses he was starting. And he said,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

are you ready for this guys?????????????

He said, "My wife is a psychic and I sell used cars.
