Here's what you need to do.

1. Listen to some early Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and NWA.
I hated rap music for quite awhile and just started listening to the older west coast stuff. I think its great, even if its "gangster". I usually look for more complex music and lyrics. I hate almost all the mainstream radio tunes. I always thought rap was very repetitive, but the old stuff has alot of style to it. Dr. Dre produced alot of it and he makes some great beats.

2. Purchase an AK47.

You'll need this in order to terminate this young child.

3. Call it a day and go to Arbys.

Get a medium drink no ice, cheese sticks, and a junior roast beef.

you could always sneak back at night and drive rebar into the lawns so it sticks up 2" or so. bet he won't last long when he has to cut 8 yards to pay for one set of blades. keep in mind that he is ruining a set on every lawn. it's just a question of how evil you want to be and if you believe in karma.

You know that kid's not going to last. He's going to miss appointments and not give a crap about the job he's doing.

Your flyers look good, btw.

Geez, the kid is 10 years old. How is he supposed to know what to do and not to do? Think his father took him out and showed him how to properly mow, trim, & blow? Does he even have a father?? IMO I'd rather see a 10 year old out mowing then in the house all day playing video games. And yes, I realize it's frustrating to see some kid in your area doing this, then cutting up your fliers on top of that. But remember back when you were 10 years old? Did you have an ethics class by that time?

BTW, I love the flyer. Did you make them up or have them printed off somewhere?

Buck

when I started out I mowed one of my regular customers and the grass at the property next door was real high. the guy was hitching his bass boat so I went right over.

after being presented, "how much?" the guy asks.

"$30...same as Ms. so-n-so", I prodly beamed.

"grrrr... do it myself", the guy growled nastily.

"I'll do it for $25 since I'm here" I replied in a more competitive stance.....

"grrrr... aint paying nobody nothing", the guy growled nastier than before.

I then went through: $20...$15...$10........each time the guy retorted something I can't post here.

FINALLY...I said: "I'll cut your grass for FIVE DAMN DOLLARS......!"

the guy about knocked me down getting in his truck.

and about the time he cranked it I yelled: "have fun at the lake because for $5 damn dollars you still gotta cut the grass.......!"

he looked at me...then the yard, then he punched the gas and took off.

my point of the story: the kid on his daddy's Z was having better luck at $5 than I had when I started out........

What you should do, is talk to the kid, and make him pay for the flyers he destroyed. then go have a talk with his parents, and osha too. until you're 18, legally you're not to even be riding on a mower with above a certain amount of power, or a deck over 32"
