    If they awarded you the job, I would keep it if you want it. It is your job, not his.
  3. If you got the job due to his poor performance, then I would say unless he seriously lowballs you, the manaager of the property will probably keep you. If you do good work for the price it will be yours for as long as you want it. But of course you could always loose it because someone wants to save money down the road. So for now I say keep it. I've gotten lawns this way, the last guy did such a poor job that even though I'm higher than he was they want someone who will do a professional, high quality job for them and they don't mind paying more for it.

    keep it, don't let someone try and push you around, because they did the lawn before. if the director of the cemetary says that the old guys price is lower, tell him, does his work look like yours when your finish?, and is he as dependable as you? most likely this guy isn't from what you said, so if the guy wants to go back to someone that can't produce the work of your crew then let him its his loss.

    No the maneger is a cusion to my wife so I thought his word is good.But the test of his word is at hand.He needs to make up his mind and sign a contract.
