    Offer to do it, but you want the $50 cash up front.

    See how boundless his stupidity really is.

    No, you are not overpriced. Cordless? Right. I guess gas power could be classiffied as cordless.

    Right. Wish him good luck on his quest.

    Tell ya what, go out there, get the $50 up front, then take your truck (assuming you have a nice one with a heavy steel bumper on the front) and drive directly over the whole row. When you get to the end and the guy is :realmad: :angry: at you, ask him "Well, what did you expect to get for only $50?"
