I have this one acount that takes over an hour to mow and trim. This property has about 50 trees on it and they drop twigs and sticks like crazy. I spend at least 1/2 hour picking up sticks every time I am there, before I can mow. This last time I filled half my full size pickup truck bed with twigs. Not 4 foot limbs and stuff but50 million sticks and twigs. I had enough. I charged her an extra $25.00 for the time spent picking up stuff and told her from now on I was gonna start charging $25.00 an hour for all this extra time spent when I could be mowing. SHE WENT OFF! I did not get fired but boy did she tell me how unfair it was. She said it was way too much and since I wasnt using equipment to do the work I should charge $10.00 an hour. Im like yeah right! So I am supposed to spend MY time that I could be mowing for 45 an hour or more, picking u sticks for $10 an hour? I don't think so! What do you all think?
