CLIENT: "Can I ask for your advice on a little tree I just planted"?

ME: "Sure".

CLIENT: "It's a cherry tree...I don't know if I'm supposed to do something".

ME: "Did you BUY it like this"?

CLIENT: "Yes, but it did have a couple leaves on it when I bought it".

ME: "It should have fully leafed out by now, and should have bloomed".

CLIENT: "What do you think is wrong with it"?

ME: "Uh,...Death".
