Ain't that the truth. There are just a few places here in town that look so good that I'm amazed every time I drive by.

Same here only I'm usually leaving the place rather then driving by it!

Yeah, I couldn't care less what someone else is doing. I worry about myself.

And, in general, everyone does a fine job anyways. It's not like this work is difficult.

Have you read some of the threads on here? You'd think it was the hardest job on the planet.

Some people talk it up to make it seem like we're surgeons or something. It's grass cutting. I could probably train a monkey to do it well.

Scheduling, customer service, maintenance, billing, etc...this is what separates the men from the boys. Of course, with today's technology, these things are also a snap. I literally spend maybe 5 minutes a day dealing with these things now.

It's a breeze and I couldn't possibly be happier. This really is a super easy gig. I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
