my first bush trimming job, i'll never forget it...it was 10 yrs ago, i put my first add in the paper, and got 2 customers. one was a weekly mow for $15, and another was every other week, for $17. the $17 lady asked me to trim a yew in her front yard, i said ok. she didn't ask for a price, and i didn't know what was appropriate, so i didn't quote anything, i figured when i was done, i'd knock and tell her $10 bucks. i borrowed a set of hedge trimmers, and proceeded to wack the hell out of that poor yew. when i got done, i knocked on the door, and she invited me in. it was hot as hell out, she gave me a glass of iced tea. i was sweating badly, she thanked me for the trimming, told me to clean up a little better before i leave, handed me $2 bucks, and a banana, saying the potasium was good for you when working in the heat. i was lost for words, unsure of what to say, so i thanked her, and cleaned up a little better. what a difference a decade makes. anyone remember thier first job in this field?
