    Heck I would get at least $40 for the same lawn. This guy doesnt have a clue. I wouldnt even show up for 25 regardless of size.

    Honestly speaking I don't care what someone else is doing, well...
    Maybe some days I do, but it is their choice and their business and I don't have to like it but to each their own.

    Guess that means I am not about to start emailing the guy :p

    Peace out

    It depends on if you have a house right by it or not. But at the same time you have to have a minimum to make it worth your while.

    "not fair to the homeowner"
    I pay $4.79 for diesel, that's not fair to me. Anybody going to sell me fuel for $3 just because I ask?

    Neither is sense. Why would they put their phone number, and then in the bottom put "do not contact by phone about this job" ?

    Also, everybody should flag that post as "miscategorized", as they are not looking to hire an employee.

    Sweet, that's right where I live/work. Maybe he/she will come out and stop me today.

    Some people don't have a clue.
