I wish the margins were that good, around here. We've got two LCOs that have run down everything, including municipal stuff. Next year will be interesting, as the big guy said he's going to bid for fuel cost to really put the screws to these two. As a group, we try to get things to where we're making money without screwing people, but, there are always those who don't care about profit.

When a regional mgr tells me to not waste my time because there's no way the current LCO is making money, based on his math and other location bids, indeed I will not waste my time. The dude was called out for trying to skip mowings, as he's bid it so low. I don't need it.
