and he wants me to do his lawn. I know the price he paid last year because his former LCO is my father. He dropped him because he is a PITA about money, calls and says don't mow this week, and the yard is tough to mow. You have to walk most of it due to steep hills. I go to his place and do an estimate. Last year he was getting Bi-weekly mowing. 35 dollars per mow. Here is the catcher of it all, he is a CPA. So I took into account all things being equal and made him this offer. Pay me $60.00 per month, throw in tax services and it would be a good deal for both sides. I would hit it 4 times a month during growing season. By the time I got to $60 a month, he says" That will be more then I paid last year. Look at the yard, the grass is bad, your dad hasn't been here in 5 months. Thats a lot of money for 7 months worth of work. Can we trade out Services?" I guess I shouldn't be supprised, but now I find my self in a tough situation. He never told me how much he was willing to pay, but I know that if I do his yard, it will mess up our friendship. He doesn't see the value in the service I provide and over values his tax preperation. I know I can get the taxes done for $150 each year elsewhere. I was willing to cut the cost of service in half and have him do my taxes, but now I see it is a bad idea. My question is, how would you handle this? Please keep in mind I don't want to ruin our friendship.
