    Ive been mowing a vacant house for a realator. Today he calls me told me he was their this morning before i mowed and then after i mowed there was a broken window. Told him it must of been me but he said we could play stupid with the owners and pretend we dont know anything. i said to send me the bill and tell the owners I did it. Anyone know how much these windows cost.

    $35.00? Wow, that particular type of window costs me almost $50.00. You know, a house window.

    It would probably help to know what kind of window we are talking about here...

    Realtors. Tell em to prove it. I had a Realtor pull that one on me last year. Come to find out it was a kid across the street. I got another kid to squeal on him. It cost me 10 bucks in bubble gum...but it was worth it.

    If it's a double pane, or glazed/tinted window it could cost a lot.

    I've paid as little as $50 for one, and as much as 300$...depending on window type/size.

    Ya, we've broken a few.

    I went to look at it today and it was the sliding door window. I have no idea of specifics of it. P.S this realator is my moms boss and he offered to lie about the incident for me. I didnt see the window break but i was trimming in the rocks to weed them out so there were rocks in the lawn. 99 percent chance it was me
