Well everything was going OK when the bomb hit. In the last week I have priced 2 overseeding jobs and 1 new seeding. Two of the three told me to go ahead with the job. And wouldn't you know it they both canceled. The other I called to see if the price was fair and his wife said that he didn't won't to spend that much. First case. A guy contacts me, He wants his back yard leveled out where he have 4 piles of dirt. He first only wants me to do this. Then he asked if I give him a price on sowing and strawing. The piles of dirt will take 4 hours and leveling anoher 2 hours. I charge 45.00 per tractor hour. The area is over 8500 sq ft. I gave him a total price of $800.00. I told him it could be less depending on how long it took on the excavating. He want it fertilize also. Second case a enter seeding of a exsisting lawn. This lawn was a fescue mixed with bluegrass lawn. The bluegrass did not make it through the summer drought. The gentleman wanted just parts of the yard done. I measured the areas that he requested. The total was just over 22,000 sq ft. I gave him a price of $550.00. This putting down 6 pounds of turf fescue with a Befco aerator/seeder that goes on the back of my TC33D. I was going to double the pattern. Thrid case, Ths one takes the cake. Yesterday I go see a widow woman. Her husband just had passed this spring. I have done several jobs for the elderly couple. Last fall I did a 1200.00 mulching job. She has over 60,000 sq ft. She has been to my place at least two times to see if i would come ut and look at it. So I finally did. She wanted to only put a 100 pounds of seed down. She also wanted it fertilized. So I gave her a price that included 3 pounds of seed per K and 400 lbs. of fert. I was only going to make one pass with the areartor. All this for $800.00. She agreed and even wanted to pay on the spot. Well ask luck would have it. One of her Grandson's and herself came by this mourning. The Grandson being a little rude told that the price to high and that he was going to do it himself. He was wanted to purchase the seed and fertilizer. I gave him aprice on that. But I tried too also explain that I was going to use power equipment. He was only to broadcast the seed then take small spike tool behind a riding mower. It just went in ear and out the other...... I am so danm mad and confused I don't know which way to turn. It's not like I have nothing to do. I have several jobs going on and have others on the line. It just makes you wonder????
