    I was looking through the paper to check for my ad, and there it was. Another lawn service proudly stating $10.00 Lawn Cutting. Gee, no wonder I haven't gotten any calls..lol

    I bet they just rolling in the dough at $10.00 per cut, it's just cheaper to stay home sometimes.

    That happens every year. There will be some catch to it such as $10 for the first 5k and $25 per 10k after that, and no trimming or blowing is included, etc.

    Im usually pretty calm, but those kinds of ads make me want to go Bobbygedd on people. Scrubs like that deserve a shovel upside the head. Ya he wont take any of our existing business from us, but he will slow down the expansion of our business. those scrubs will pick up 100 new lawns with that ad and thats 100 new lawns that we cant charge the going rate for.:blob2:

    Customers can't be that stupid, If somebody is doing work so cheap, they gotta suck at what they are doing.

    wow, that's low. Maybe I should call him to service my accounts and collect the difference....

    I bet that's a kid or something looking for arcade money.

    No, that's someone who thinks 8-10 bucks an hour is big money.
