Iíve got to say I have been lucky not to be approached for a senior discount. Most of my clients have watched me as a little 8-year-old pushing dadís mower. I always get a crack when I tell these clients that Iím not that little kid anymore. (Iím an old man at 36 yrs old, no offense intended to people my age or older.) I charge a fair price and these people realize how expensive it is to live in my area. <br>I wouldnít give a senior discount because I would have to make it up with my other clients. This wouldnít be fair. Businesses that do give senior discounts make it up with their other clientele.<br>Jean<br><p>----------<br>J-LC Landscaping & Maintenance Gardening<br>C-27 Ca Contr# 770044
