10. You quote a price $5 higher than the old price
11. You happened to quote them a new higher price that they determined was still a reasonable price for you to be charging for your services

Is this "any easier for you"?
They hired me back at a higher rate because they need their lawn cut, realized the grass wasn't greener somewhere else and agreed to pay more. Whether you like it or not sometimes we have to pay up and sometimes more than we want. Goes for many things.

Is that any easier for you to understand?

Seems many have a problem when its said that the customer runs your business and sets your prices rather than the other way around. We charge fair prices. Lots of good customers out there that you don't have to deal with the squabblers.
