While writing the post updating every one I mentioned I had put my phone number wrong on my business flyers. I was reminded of another typo I had.
I used to have a Ford F550 that had a crane and winch on it. My business cards said. ” Lady Witha Truck,
Scrap Metal Recycling Service
Capable of hauling up to 5 tons
Equipped with a winch and crane.”
I had printed off 250 business cards and handed them out to every one I saw sometimes giving several to one person so they had extras. It was working really well, I was getting calls daily. I was out of business cards within a couple of months and decided to print more of exactly the same format because the last ones had such a good response.
I brought it up on my computer and was just giving it a once over deciding if I wanted to change anything when I noticed.
Equipped with a winch and CANE!!!!!
OMG I was laughing so hard I literally almost peed myself!!!
I had one customer ask me when I got to the job where my cane was and I had thought he was just being a smart ass and teasing me about my age. I had replied, “I’m not that old!”
I was probably getting calls from people because they felt sorry for me or were curious about a woman that uses a cane and hauls scrap metal.
Oh well it was good for business!
