    So this guy lives in S. Carolina and I'm taking care of his property (house) for over a year while workers got it ready to rent. I'm charging him PRIMIUM price at 50$ a visit to keep it looking pretty. Well the renters finally come and it's two cute college girls. And I also find out that their in charge paying whomever they want to do their yard. I'm over their today and what do I do? I tell them I'll do it for 30 Bucks! They were'nt going to have 50$ a week for yard maintenance. I'll never get rich going down like that. but what can I say? I'm a sucker for pretty girls.

    Tell them "Normally I would charge $50 to maintain your yard, but we may be able to work something out for a discount".

    I agree snap some shots.

    This is not an anecdotal site. This is an educational site.

    I think he's just educated us. Deduct $10 per purty girl from the original price. Just hope they don't bring in 3 more chicks, or you'll be doing it for free. Looking forward to pics...

    sends a clear message to the owner of the property that you have been ripping him off.

    Which ever way this falls, I think your work there will be short lived....if those grrrrls see a sexy lawn guy somewhere, he will have your work, they will probably meet a guy at college who wants the work and a bit of fun on the side.

    I would of negotiated...not drooled LOL!
