Forget the lowballers!

This was a local ad .... I may need to raise prices!

"I am seeking to mow people's yards who dont have the time for outside maintenance. I am very flexible for shifts and will be available asap. I do have my own mode of transportation as well. The only thing that I need provided for each job is the availability to your personal lawn mower. I will be charging $70.00 per job which includes the front and back yard, and I will only accept cash so that there is no problems. You can reach me on my cell phone to book me for my mowing services at xxx xxx xxxx

Just imagine what one can charge if you bring your own equipment...?

Maybe it is a joke...maybe not.

I am wondering if he wants to use their shower and towels as well when he is done! Maybe next year he can put his prices up and the customer can pick him up as well!

Sounds like you little boys are on a witch hunt. Maybe you can post a video of the gentlemen you are referring to, in the original post, on youtube after you burn him at the stake.
