You can sure tell that the economy is in bad condition. Several guys I know in the area have lost accounts by people coming in and offering to do the same service for almost half the price. Today, I got a taste of it myself. I called up one of my customers that just pays me per cut to make sure that everything was still on go to start back up in about a month. She told me that she had decided to go with someone else this year because they would do it cheaper. This yard is 3/4 of an acre and I was cutting it for $40 a cut, which is a good price. The other guy said he would do it for $25 a cut. Give me a break. She said that I could still do it if I would match his price. Yeah, right. I told her no thanks. I don't think people realize that it hurts everybody when they lowball jobs like that. How do they expect for them, or anybody else, to be able to make a living with prices like that? It drives me crazy.
