One of my lawn customers asked me a few weeks ago about doing some ls work for them(planting some things, mulching, clean-up). I said ok and that I would complete the work over the next few visits to their property, when I came out to cut the lawn. I get out there today and while I'm halfway through cutting, a 10 year old kid from the neighborhood shows up on his bicycle and starts doing the ls work I had already discussed with my customer! I didn't bother to even discuss it with my customer tonight because I had to calm down first. I don't bear any ill will aginst this kid, but it makes me mad to think that my customer put me in the same category as him, and figured they would get the same quality job. I feel like I should lower my standards when I deal with these kind of people, because they must not care too much about quality.
