    I'd like to know how people with PHD's sleep at night ;)

    I think this customer confused your business income with your personal income.

    Dont worry , be happy

    Sometimes (it seems to me anyway), to lessen the difference in happyness, sour people would rather bring us down instead of rising up to our level. (assuming we are the happy one, lol)

    If that cat could have done what u did in one hour, he would have theoretically made $70/hr for that time :) He CHOSE not to.

    I actually charge $70 for the first half hour, and $70 hour after that. So the first hour is $105. I am on the high end here. Not many more expensive than myself for the area.

    85 hr for residential
    95-125 hr for commercial first hr billed no matter if its 20 min

    although i do have a 50 dollar minimum if its an old lady & it really didnt require any sweat
    say less than 15 min or so

    No difference, you're right, Tom. $125.00 to show up, second hour $95.00.
