I hate to single out a group of individuals, but people from India, in my experience they nit pick and are extremely cheap with everything & they want a price breakdown with materials & labor separated. Sorry, that's not how it works!

Next time, tell them to get a breakdown from their barber when they get their next haircut. People don't think twice about paying $15 for a 15 minute haircut, but balk at $35 to cut their grass. How much would their barber charge to come to their house for the same haircut?

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
