    I wont even dare sub this dude.
    It's obvious he's got no clue of what's going on.
    Are the other ads of home repair, custom upholstery and prescriptions also his ventures??
    Just curious!

    Check out his work. If he does good work .....sub him. But, chances are he might be around long or might not be dependable.

    Ask to see his license and insurance. At $10 a lawn, he'd have to work a long time to make those payments.

    Hire him to help you. He might just need to work. Maybe he has a family toy feed. Did anyone think of that. We all start some place.where did some of you guys start. Im sure you didnt just hop on a Z and start charging a buck a min. Come on.
