    If it wasn't for scrubs I would probably be even further behind right now! The rain and warm weather has really made the grass grow!

    I lost one account because a guy owed a busniess money. He was going to start mowing grass this year so the business owner called to talk to me. He explained that it's nothing I did, but he felt like this was the only way he could get some money out of this guy?!?!? WHATEVER! What really Tees me off is I had this account last year, and it was really starting to look good towards the end of the year. O-well, I'll just have to charge more once the scrub screws it up.

    The other scrub incident involves a business also. They called and said they were really pleased with my services last year but. . . A friend of one of the partners (CPA firm) was going to start mowing this year, and they wanted to give him a chance. I can't wait to see the 40 some shrubs when he's done with them! Ha! Ha! Ha! I'll look forward to that call about the middle of summer! I just wonder if it's the same guy? I'll give him a year, then yank a few accounts out from under him!

    That's from the yellow house next to mine to the west, I mow it for them, they're about 87 - 89 years old. It doesn't hold a stripe long and as you can see from driving by it, there's too many f'ing weeds in it!

    Yeah cheapcuts, you must be really making the bucks when you have nothing better to do at 12:06 AM???

    Try maybe a highschool / college kid, who Mom and Dad are supporting, while you become a web-site "lurker", and try to get people wound up. Try another site. . . . cause we have better things to do, then screw with you!
