I am currently under contract at a 9 home duplex culdesac development for weekly maintenance. I only mow the front yards of these homes. Some have zeroscape in the back or a small 100 to 200sqft lawn. Anyway one of the homeowners comes out while i am fertilizing the front yard the other day and wants me to mow her back lawn and just bill her. I had mowed the yard in back before she moved in for the builder so i knew all about it. Her lawn is maybe 200sqft (4 passes with 21"). This women is probably 90 years old. I tell her sure, that'll be 15 a week. At this she says "$15 for three (bad, bad word) passes" . I cracked a smile and told her i had to make a living. She says " i had to make a living once too, but i never stole form anybody" . i then told her to enjoy mowing it herself.....and she said she would. This old timer made my day. If only i were single......i could use a gal with spunk like that. I had been forwarned about the women hitting the bars in the early morning and coming home by noon loaded. tear into boys...................tell me i am highball scum and that i should do it for $7 or less. Anyway she made my day and makes me smile everytime i see her.
