    Do you cut grass as your primary income or on the side?
    If on the side, what do you do for your primary income?

    I cut part time on the side. (about 30 accounts)

    I'm a Paramedic for a large EMS service that covers LA, TX, MS. (Acadian Ambulance) www.acadian.com
    I run primarily 9-1-1 with occasional hospital to hospital transports.

    I do this part time. It started as something my son was doing, so we work together now - I plan to turn it completely over to him at some point, he's 16 now. My full time job is a maintenance technician for a small pharmaceutical company.

    Lawn care full time, and no other side/part-time job. Last time I worked 2 jobs (one full time and there other part time), I was only getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep each night. No more of that for me.

    Started a part time lawn care business this year here on the gulf coast. Have 10 regular accounts since March growing every week. I run a tractor with a finishing trideck implement for a Air Force base for over ten years. Love the type of work....

    Yeah, Doing 2 jobs at once is rough...Its funny that I go to work on the ambulance to relax lol. Not to many jobs you can sleep on the clock and get paid for!! Not sure if I want to go full time in the future and drop being a paramedic tho...Worked way to hard for that.

    full time

    i never understood someone working 2 jobs. if 1 job isn't enough you need to find a real job.

    i know some people that work 3 jobs. i just don't get it. there's more to life than money. get rid of the 3 crappy jobs and get 1 real job.

    i understand some jobs like firemen, paramedics, or whatever have days off. if i did that though i would just enjoy my days off. they get paid well enough not to have to work on their days off or maybe they are just bored? some people are just workaholics though or want as much money as they can get no matter what they have to do. they will sleep 4hrs a night and work 7 days a week 15hrs a day. i don't understand that type of person. :laugh:

    i see these guys that are married and they work 80hrs a week and their wife does nothing all day. the kids are in school so she could get a job of some type even if it was part time. it's like the man is killing himself to provide for the whole family while they just spend all the money he makes. it just doesn't make sense. i'd say i'll work 40hrs. if you want to buy more things then you can get a job to make extra money. :laugh:
