This is just a rant - AAAAARRRRGGGHHHH! A sweet old lady, who is a friend and lives about 18 miles from me was having problems getting the guy who mows her yard/field (3/4 acre, lots of bumps-holes-etc) so I opened my big mouth and said I'll come out and take care of it. It's about 3-4 hours work plus an hour or so drive time. I charged her $30 to cover my costs. Nice, right? Not to mention all of the times before this that I went out and shoveled a yard of dirt, cut down trees, did whatever she needed. I guess she liked the price because she talked me into mowing it a couple more times (I guess her regular guy was happy to be out of the loop by now). So finally I told her last night that I wouldn't be able to do it anymore because her field was beating the hell out of my SCAG wb. Today I got a mildly angry message on my phone saying how I "put her in a spot" by not showing up today. Am I missing something? Geez... I'm about to lose a good friend all because I tried to help out once. What a shame - and it ONLY happens when I try to be a good sam! Please, feel free to add to this RANT!
