How many guys after a typical week thank the lord that you dont cut grass?.
Whatchoo talkin' bout, Willis?
I like mowing better than installs but lately Im Installing and My Guys are mowing
I love to ride around in the sunshine and think about what a great day it is!(don't work when it starts raining).And then look at some lanscaping we did and say dang that looks good!
Watch too many guys busting there behind all day mowing while
we cruise through the day and typically make more money. Guess what I am getting at is I prefer keeping one or two customers a week happy instead of 75.
Are you referring to do landscape instead of mowing?
If you're making good money why ask for a job in florida?
Are installers the top of the food chain?
Some people mow, some people install, and some people do brain surgery.
If a brain surgeon said to his x-ray technician, on the way to the golf course, aren't you glad you don't do landscape construction as he was looking at you, you would think he was an schpincter. You'd be right.
When you say the same thing to someone that mows, they'd be right.
It is all a matter of perspective.
There are lots of mowing companies keeping hundreds of customers happy.
Your right I am glad I don't mow or do landscape full-time. This is a part-time job for me. I like working in an office full-time at what I do and work outside part-time.
No matter what your job is their will always be someone who doesn't like your job. The only thing that matters if you like the job your doing. If you don't like your job then switch careers to find out what you do like.
Working 40+ hours a week at something you don't like is a sad life that effects your family life, health, relations with people, may get a cynical view of life, etc..
That last sentence is a little exaggerated to make a point.
That last sentence is not at all exaggerated,just the truth.
Not having a go at lawn cutters just asking if fellow install guys are happy they dont mow and maybe why?. No need for anyone to get there knickers in a knot.
Unlike some I like to work so if I choose to work in my offseason all the better! I"ll choose outdoor work down south over snowplowing up north anyday.
