I got a call for an estimate today on a 13k SF yard. I told the person that my schedule was full and that the best I could do was put him on a waiting list of 7 people. He said fine just give me an estimate and I'll wait until there is an opening. After arriving at the house an old guy about 75 without teeth wearing bib overalls comes out and shakes my hand and says my name's Preston. I need a new lawn guy cause mine is charging too much. I measured the yard and tell him $25 (figured I would cut him a little break since he couldn't afford teeth). WHAT!!! you must be crazy to try and charge that much. The guy I have now is charging me $17 and he just raised it from $15 beacuse of gas prices. I told him the guy cutting his lawn right now is losing money cutting his grass at $17. He didn't buy it, but at that point I didn't care or want to carry on the conversation and longer. It absolutely amazes me how cheap and mizerly some individuals can be where lawn care is concerned. I told the old guy to hold on the the current LCO and pray he doesn't quit, because he won't find anyone else to do it that cheap and be around for very long. Anybody else run into these kind of people or am I the only lucky one?
