    I DID AND LOST 6 ACCOUNTS!!!!!!! They told me that they found somone cheaper and that we did a great job for 8yrs but money is tight and this flyer i got says one month free cutting and is only going to charge $20.00.WTF!!!
    I mean i added a 2.00 surcharge for fuel and people are tripping on me this week. Im actually ready to call all my clients and take it off. But i cant!!!

    Percision was out in full force cutting everything in site!!! I swear half of them didnt even need it and now you can see mud tire tracks everywhere.LOL dummies

    I don't know if any of you use Slime tire sealant, but if you need some, AutoZone has a deal on it. I was buying a gallon jug and saw that there was a $10 mail-in rebate on it. Price is $29.99 and with the $10 rebate, that makes it $19.99 per gallon. Just wanted to let you know.

    Yeah i have a fuel surcharge in place, but not gonna tack it on until we get first billing in - that way they dont try and play games and quit. The few i did raise have also quit due to same as you Mike..."Oh well so and so will do it for 16/wk". WTF.

    Go for it. I'll sit home and watch the Hangover for the 100th time before i go cut for free.
