When I looked up and there were 5 different mowing outfits darn near within rock-throwing distance. I was embarrassed and felt lower than a possom's belly. I later examined the way I felt and determined that the very thing that many of the large companies had worked so hard for the many past years are being undermined by LBs...there were no Bull$hit ebooks online showing that any criminal monkey can make a living mowing lawns - just great ideas and blood, sweat, and tears. Now, as the gates open for the spring, I see more LBs ready to be the fire ants of society and business world. Anybody can mow a lawn, therefore, and from seeing others, know for a fact that people go up to potential clients and say "What is that other outfit charging you? - Elevator Music - Well, how bout I charge you this (lower amount)..........................there are few options to add - maybe juggle while mowing dressed like a clown...dress in a monkey costume to play the part correctly...how bout rap on a loud speaker while mowing...I cannot prove it, but as the crime goes up in this city, so does the amount of lawn maintenance ops...hmmmm, a link? If one cannot get a job at McD's what can onedo but push a mower. Most outfits are illegal in every way...the people (illegal aliens), the fact of no licenses, etc. Pathetic. Most people are skating on thin ice with no medical insurance for their families. Most people cannot afford 800 dollars a month for medical insurance. But, most don't care if they are skating on thin ice, as they do this all day, every day, anyway. The field has become congested to the point of absurdity. Usually, when person obtains accounts, it is through deception and shady ethical standards. Let the LB'g begin.
