    Slow down buddy. I never said you werent doing it legally. Im not attacking you at all. Im trying to explain how this is working. There is nothing wrong with my math. Go back and reread what I posted. All scenarios and companies are different.

    Actually its not. I believe the poverty line is somewhere around $9,000 a year.

    Again, you are no business man charging to get to the job. You are a thief when that happens. You are robbing the client...

    Lets see it takes FIVE minutes to get there from here...lets stop, have lunch on the way and stop at the equipment dealers place (which is also on the way) and chat for about 1/2 hour and by the time we get to the clients property (wich SHOULD have taken only 5 minutes) we can charge an additional HOUR...

    One word...THIEF...one more word...LIAR...saying it took you an hour. You are very unethical and it is fools like you that are bringing this country to its knees...:hammerhead:

    yea maybe in beverly hills but if husband and wife both making 50k a year they making 100k total incase ur math is a lil bad


    you can live in any state in the US with a combined 100k a year or who knows maybe his wife is a lawyer making 250k a year and he doesnt like seeing her ugly a$$ and would rather cut grass 12 hours a day

    i live in the 13th richest town in the US in 2005 and the avg household income was either 113 or 130k a year

    What was his Machine Hr rate? Operator in the skid is being billed at $35 an hr and probable another $60 an hr for the machine. Man hrs don't mean anything because man with out machines are useless. :) :drinkup:
