In that case, I'd be glad to be "fired" and lose a PITA.
This is a business to me, not a hobby.
Then start acting like a business man...In your initial post you say NOTHING...about the price quoted...as being one that may change after the first cut...If you want to act like a business...then you should know how to bid a property...Believe me...I would be glad to be rid of you...You NON-businessman...
You mis-priced a job. We've all done it.
You gave a price to mow 35 bucks, and the lawn took way too long, and dulled your blades from all of the rocks. This lawn needs to be at least 50 bucks.
What do you do next?
