    why would you even be talking to them? do they stalk you down or something? i think that is weird.

    just tell them it's not between you and them it's between them and the customer.

    Shoot, right I know I barely time to talk to my own guys let alone jawjack with LCOs at the fuel pumps.

    BTW the size of an operation shouldn't dictate the price. I know a few "super small" ops that are run so well their profit margins would make Warren Buffet drool.

    I don't mind cutting it shorter if the land allows it, but the first time they skip their next cut will be at 4 1/2 inches.

    gues what i meant to say is efficiency is more essential for smaller companies. they do not have bulks of cash to just toss around

    I think they we responding to my post. My point was being a bigger company doesn't mean they are automatically more profitable.
