People that work for a paycheck and never invest any of their own money in a business, along with the blood, sweat and tears involved, never will understand the small business. My father once said all they invest is the price of a lunch box. Not only that, but the health care industry as a whole increases prices at a much greater rate than other industries with the possible exception of the property and casualty industry lately.

did you give them a estimate? did they sign it? my experience with this kind of problem is if they pay in full good for u, however most people start to look for a new service provider. or they play the my husband said its to much game or vice versa and they never spend another dime on anything but cut the grass. so don't feel bad if they can u at the end of the season just move on.

Tell her that you don't mind dropping the price to a more reasonable range for her, but that it is likely to go up 150-200% every 6 months. Just like the monthly health insurance rates do. I quit my job in the health insurance industry to make mow money.

Also this is my first post, there goes my cherry. lol
