    The lady I was cutting grass for is messuses on the side. Well the guy that I knew that was cutting her grass last year told me this year he didnt want to cut her grass anymore and asked if I wanted to start cutting it I said shere. Its right down the street 3 houses down. It is about 28k sq ft I gess he thought he was loosing money on it. Which he was cause I really wasnt making any money on it cause it took me over an hour to cut it. The back yard it is a jungle limbs hitting you in the face and every thing it was a joke. Well the lady only wanted it to be cut every 2 weeks so every time I cut the grass it was really long and some spots needed to be cut twice. I cut the yard 3 times before I get a note in the mail and it says the guy that was cutting her grass last year she is going to be calling him back and start having him cut his grass again. Well the reason why I lost out to a back rub is cause they was trading services last year which I would never do. So this is really cheap for her to get her lawn cut. The guy I know has never called me and said hey this is whats going on or any thing. Im not to upset about it cause it really wasnt worth $40 to cut.

    I try not do discriminate based on looks, but when I get a massage, I like the person to be attractive.

    thats funny. It's so much different of a mind set between areas of the country. If a potential customer wanted to trade lawn care for a massage I would think they were crazy. If they were 3 bill's I would RUN.

    There are gals here that pay rent with a bit more than a massage. Rumor of course.
