    sounds like charity to me.

    everyone I work for pays full price. there is no discount for anything. doesn't matter if your 30 and fit or 90 with hip problems. if the job is $40 it's $40 for all.

    My elderly plowing customers pay my minimum too, but they are all in the same area and at the very end of my route, so their service isn't the best. Often they only get plowed once, whereas my other customers get plowed 2 or 3 times....it's a trade-off they're willing to make to save a few bucks and works out for both parties. I do have a soft spot for "little old ladies" and I'm not ashamed of that, lol.

    Check is in the mail.......:)
    No dispute over the charges.

    The 20's year old live at home unemployed son wants to earn the mowing $.
    The csr.....40's year old single female doctor, is tired of paying his car payments/insurance/cell phone bill and giving him spending $.

    guess I don't have soft spots.

    everyone pays the same amounts. young, old, able, disabled, fixed income, social security, disability, family, friend, etc.

    Same thing, they have no where to go during the storm anyways. Anything over 6" I charge for two visits even if I only make one. Like I said, I still make money and they get a service they NEED not one because they are too lazy, but because they are physically unable to do it... a huge difference IMO.
