    In an effort to recap all the valuable info on this site for you guys I am starting a new service called "What I learned on Lawnsite TODAY"

    Today I learned

    1. Pissing on customers properties is OK
    2. Taking a dump on customers property is unacceptable
    3. Ghetto customers are charged the same price as high end customers
    4. You should charge $40 for an acre because you can mow 4 acres an hour so an acre will only take 15 minutes (don't worry about trimming or blowing they just magically happen)
    5. Taking your Dog with you to customers property is COOL :cool2:
    6. Commercial mowers and blue tarp things don't go well together

    Stay Tuned
    Acute Cut and mbricker like this.

    I wa going to say as long as it's on a blue tarp thingy, and it's a ghetto customer being charged $40 an acre.

    damn mike! I think you owe me some reputation points or you need to take some away!!!!

    I have posted about making my poochies day by bringing her along as it is practical. the fact is....she makes several of my customers day because they love to see her. she is awsome. and if anyone cares......she doesn't poop on my customers. I make sure she poops on non-customers only.

    as for the blue tarps and my mower.....trust me dude. they are best to be avoided.

    I've learned:

    that the Hair Club for Men also makes mullet styles

    People can rationalize away their behavior faster than you can educate them why they should do the right thing.

    Its been kinda slow on LS the last couple of days. But I did learn a few things

    1. You can mow wet grass and tell the customer to kiss your A** if they dont want you to mow

    2. Blowing debris on the neighbors lawn is not a good idea. If they complain just tell them to kiss your A**

    3. I now know the meaning of the words Hidden Agenda :nono:
