I went to do a yard this morning that I have grown to dislike badly because of all the straw it has in it. I do it eow and it needs to be every week. I get my BP blower out and start blowing the straw away from the house and drive, it was real thick and I'm thinking "I'm fixing to change my policy on these yards that is taking longer because of this". The lady comes out after I had been there about 10 minutes and ask me "the grass does not need mowing and you should be able to do it cheaper now". I stood there amazed for a second then told her "you think I can do it cheaper now? The straw has covered the ground, I STILL have to weed eat and go over the whole yard with the mower to bag it PLUS I have to blow it to where I can get to it! Actually I'm fixing to start charging extra for it because of the extra time it takes, your yard will take me an extra hour today." She said "but the grass does not need mowing and you could rake it without having to use your mower". I told her "you still don't get it do you, I STILL have to go over it with the mower, period and I have this equipment where I don't have to rake". "Well, she says, I cant afford it this month, Ill rake it myself, my teen needs some new clothes". I told her to have fun and start walking back to the truck and she is standing there with that deer in the headlight look. What the***** are people thinking? What really ticked me off was I only had 2 yards to do today and pulling my equipment all the way to town was not worth the gas to do one lousy yard.
