I’m with Delicate Lawn Care, your area lawn care providers. I’ve got great news for you, ma’am. This year is our 15th anniversary and we’re celebrating by giving new customers 15 per cent off our Grow n’ Cut package. All I need is a couple of basic pieces of information to lock in this great discount for you today.
I don’t want to commit to anything right now, thanks. I can see from my caller ID that you’re calling from 1-800-555-1234. I’ll phone you back when I’ve had time to think about this deal.
