I do not currently operate a cleaning business, so I can't offer a ride-along, but I am happy to discuss or answer questions. 801 207-1136. (Don't let the area code fool you, I am only about 4 hours away.)

Just needs a better backstory than "my wife named it and I'm embarrassed"

then a mascot, a cool wrap for the van, and turtle coloring books for the kids
Haha, Now you got me thinking of resurrecting it.

Believe it or not, a few years ago my wife convinced me to name my cleaning company "purple turtle cleaning", I ended up just getting a few big jobs and selling it-but wow it was embarrassing to tell people my company name.

I think it's a cool name 'n logo
Just refrain from scaring your body with a tattoo of it

Like Santa Cruz , I could teach him how to clean but not how to interact with upper middle class


The only thing my customers would let you southern goobers touch on their property is the outside spigot if you were thirsty
Down here in these trailer parks... That's the only thing I want to touch. Have you ever had a customer give you a glass of water that's dirty? And now, you have find a tactful way to say "nope, you stank"

A 'glass of water'. Is it 1970?


Customers often provide us with sealed bottles of water


And before you get all environmental, I'm supporting a bill to convert Prattsville into a landfill for all the discarded plastic


Should increase surrounding property values tenfold

Landfill for discarded plastic? How is burying plastic environmental?

They’ve found ways to recycle it (mixing it in the product that makes roads, walls for houses, etc). There’s no excuse to bury it

“My acerbic tongue”
To be true to my nickname, I thought I'd share a list of other words that might also describe your less than pleasant nature when confronted by someone you think less than highly of:

"Acerbic" (especially of a comment or style of speaking) sharp and forthright.

"his acerbic wit"

synonyms:sharp, sarcastic, sardonic, satirical, scathing, cutting, razor-edged, incisive, penetrating, piercing, biting, stinging, searing, keen, caustic, trenchant, bitter, acrimonious, astringent, harsh, severe, devastating, abrasive, wounding, hurtful, unkind, cruel, vitriolic, virulent, mordant, venomous, waspish, poisonous, spiteful, vicious, malicious;
acerb;
informalbitchy, catty;
informalsarky;
informalsnarky;
raremordacious, acidulous
"he was renowned for his abrasive manner and acerbic tongue"

I wanted you to know, Fred, that I would never call you "bitchy, catty, or snarky"...as all are a bit effeminate and passive aggressive. God knows you aren't effeminate, and not passive....the aggressive part, well yeah.

But the rest of the terms?

My guess you would wear them with pride!
