Well i been cutting this ladies yard for 3 years now. I go to her yard today, for the 2nd cut of the season. I am trimming the house across the street and see her talking to my helper. I walk over and ask her what if anything is wrong? she says she does not want the back cut today, she says it has not grown much. I said ok, if thats what you want. we talk a little more and then she asks, well what do i owe you today? I said the same as always, 35.00. She gasps, you are still gonna charge me the same amount and not cutting the back? I said, Yes ma'am, we agreed on a price and it and if i ride out here it will be the same amount wether i just cut half or the whole yard. She asks, How do you stay in Business charging people for price for half the work? I ask, how to i feed my 3 children if i don't. if it costs me 5.00 in gas to get here, pay my helper 9.00 per hr. and then you tell me to cut half and only expect me to charge half. She then says, well i don't think i will need your services anymore after this week. I said ok, i hate to lose you. She then walks me around to the back yard and has me look at it, it needs cutting i tell her. She says i guess your right, and if i am paying full price you might as well cut it. I said ok, and told her i hated losing her business. She says oh never mind me, just come back as scheduled.
