    I get $30.00 plus tax to mow & trim minimum. Theres a mowing boy knocking on the customers door asking to mow their lawn for $25.00 cash I've lost two lawns this way. Do I turn him in or just go on?:blob2:

    LB is right. Those you have or may lose will be calling for you to come back in time after that clown mangles their property. Of course it cost more to come back now.

    Happens to us all, just move on because as soon as you turn him in, another will come out of the woodwork!

    Cut throats come and go each year. My rep for quality work sets me apart from a guy who may not be here tomorrow.

    I dont thing we want to start a habit of turning each other in. I dont care how "legit" everyone claims to be on this site. You still do not want the gov. looking at you...
