I have posted on here before about a customer that I have that owns two 7-11's and a couple houses. He is always trying to get something for nothing and always negotiating my prices. Not long ago I was going to give him a piece of my mind. He calls me and before I can say anything he says he has a friend with two gas stations for me to cut. So I didn't say anything and thought to myself that maybe its worth it since he is getting me more work. I drove to the gas stations a few weeks ago and we agreed on a price for both. They were both over grown and one was so bad I had to use a weed whacker because the garbage, tires, bottles and misc crap. But it was just a small area that had grass. Even with it being so high it only took me about 20 minutes to cut. Well today I'm cutting at the same station and the owner tells me that I need to clean up the trash before I cut it. It just blew my mind. It would take me at least two hours to clean up this place. It's a disaster area. I told him my price was to cut the grass. I would gladly clean up though but I will charge him $100.00. He didn't say much about after that. He is just like his 7-11 buddy. Trying to get something for nothing. I know it shouldn't be important but both of them are middle eastern. I think it's something they do. Always negotiate. I hate that. My price is my price. Now don't get me wrong. I pick up trash all of the time off my yards. A plastic bag here and there or a soda can or news paper. But I'm not there to give them a full clean up. Just to mow, trim and blow. Maybe I'm just an easy target for these guys but I'm not giving them anything for nothing anymore.
