Gotta love the lowballers...............Right ?

had a customer for about 3 yrs. not a very good one " kind of off and on "

was a 14 dayer. every other week.

there's this kid in my area that he has some type of fued with me. Not sure why or what. but he was caught letting the air out of my tires last year.
" I went ahead and procusacuted " <--spelling.

so today this customer calls and says my expences are going up and my income is going down, Well come to find out this kid went and underbided me by 15.00.

Being legal it's my responabilty to turn in the ones that are NOT. and NOT paying taxes.

so guess what guys.......


yup the low ballers, ya gotta love em.

NO, the state, state taxes are higher than federal.

after the state gets through with someone then the feds want to have a chat with them...

Screw that, seems to me more like maybe the kid's doing you a favor by taking
this customer off your hands, and there's some things worth fighting over but a 14-day
mow that someone wants to do for 15 less just doesn't seem to be one of those to me,
then again maybe it is, but I'd probably let it go and be on my way.

I disagree... Today its a junk account, but if he's targeting him, tomorrow it will be something better.
