I was just going to ask about that old picture, and I see someone was thinking along the same lines I was!

I have respect for anyone willing to make a buck. I don't have respect for anyone living off the government tit or living off a woman. Honest work is ok in my book. All the threads about lowballers and scrubs are rediculous. Everyone starts at the bottom and as far as I know, I haven't seen anyone publish specific prices to compare.

I agree with you 100% about the above, but this is still funny, scrub, pro, it doesn't matter he was still going to a hard days work never the less, but it doesn't take the funny out of it, i wasn't knocking him, just telling you what i see. I am new to the business, and what you all would think of as a scrub, with my jeep an old trailer, i know that the loco are laughing at me, but that is all right, cause i am just trying out the water right now, too see if i will be able to handle it all year. and if i like it then maby next year i will try again going pro. but for now my jeep will do, just like his 10 speed will work for him.

True story. In my neighborhood there is 2 kids 15 or 16 years old. They started a business Have you guys seen those gas powered scooters? Imagine it pulling a 21" mower with a garbage can between the haldles and the engine of the mower. Inside the can was extra gas and a weed eater. The other kid would ride his bike with another mower bungie corder to it...when he got tired of pedeling, he would grab onto the first mower! Seeing this "train" going down road was.....priceless!!!

Those are some funny stories, luckily it isnt that bad here yet!

Best I saw was a guy in the fall with a really old vac on a small trailer blowing the leaves into the back of his van, now that was some funny stuff, piece of plywood blocking the driver seat and your set
