    that's what she said to me, she said, "i saw your truck at mrs. so n so's house. i took down your number. i just FIReD my lawn guy, would u be interested in doing my lawn?" i don't know guys, we all have our opinions, but i don't like the sound of this word "fired", it makes me think, that they think, that the lawnboy is thier employee, i don't dig that crap. watta u think?

    its just an experession. And they all think that no matter what they say or do. I fired my pool guy this week, how else would I put it.

    Technically you are doing work for them. Technically they hire you. Technically they can fire you.


    But its all in the wording.

    The wording doesn't bother me, employee, whatever. I've pretty much been self employed since I was 9. I've been called a lot worse. I would be more worried about why she fired the last guy.

    Thats why I always ask them who the previous company was and the reason for letting them go. Just to make sure I dont do the same thing they did.

    I guess for you sensitive types(BOOBY) she could have said " The young gentleman that was servicing my property wasn't doing things the way that I prefer, so I asked him nicely.... pretty please with sugar on top, stop cutting my grass....if that's okay with you."
