OK so i am out in front of my house changing a light on my dump truck, and a car pulls up, and the guy probably about 28 years old asks, "Do you do landscaping ??? "so i reply yes (not to mention there was 3 trucks and a trailer full of mowers with landscaping written all over it in the street), and he says he just moved in a couple houses up from mine and has not purchased a mower yet and how much would i charge to cut his grass? so i tell him thirty bucks. he then kinda mumbles thirty bucks, and then says, "Can i barrow one of your mowers for a half hour, forty five minutes? i look at him, totally surprised and say NO !! he then had a look on his face, wondering why so i then say, i don't let anyone barrow my mowers, they are ten grand a piece. he then replies, O there that much, well i guess it was worth a try and then drove away. has anyone ever had this happen to them, i am not talking about a close friend or family member asking a favor, i have never seen or talked to this guy in my life. the cheap bast**d would not pay me thirty bucks to cut is lawn, but i am supposed to let him borrow my machine that i use to put food in my mouth. i am just having trouble getting over this, i am just totally amazed as to how cheap and can't believe that someone would ask me that. whats he going to do,?? burn all my gas up, and probably ruin the blades or something, and then hand it back to me and maybe say thank you?? i mean first he asks for a price, and then asks to borrow the mower. i mean it might have made a little more sense, if he asked to borrow the mower first and i said no, and then asking for a price. but even still i can't believe it, my business is landscaping, i am not a rental company, but even still, this guy was looking free-be, so i am guessing he probably would not even pay to rent a mower.
