    It's time to raise your minimum a few bucks and see if your leaving anything on the table!!! Leaving just $1 on the table at each job adds to a nice juicy steak at the end of the day@@@@@@

    But hey I was wondering about that.. There's a mobile home park thing with about 80-100 of them in it, and I was thinking about calling the company in charge to see about getting all of them.. Anyone here do that?

    Better yet, what was your percentage of accepted estimates? What do they say, if you land 80% or more of your work your too cheap? I forget what the percentage was.

    I remember as a young boy my father taking my brother and me to Lake Minnetonka to fish for crappies in the spring when they were spawing. When we were over a school, they would bite on almost any bait --- I even caught some on a bare hook. It was a feeding frenzie.

    I think everyone here has pegged this guy's boastful flyer claim correctly. Land on a school of hungry customers (like a trailer park) and bait them with a very low price. Fishing there will be just like fishing in Minnesota - successful.

    Do I think I could repeat that bare hook catch again? I'd sure like to try! Anyone else wanna go fishing on Minnetonka?
