i was working one of my large accounts (nice old couple, large estate) doing a ton of detail work. the customer scheduled after his trip to to south texas for opening day of dove season. i hit my mark on what i try to charge time wise and then the lecture starts. the home owner starts telling my son how a business should operate, and proceeds to tell me i charge to much. i was informed he could "hire a mexican" to do the 10 hours of work we just finished for $50.00. i told him i had insurance. a pesticide license, and all the equipment to complete properties as complex as his. i also told him to go hire anybody he wanted to. at this point he told me he'd call me for pruning and pest work, but he'd be finding " a 15 year old mexican " to handle the trimming and mowing. i just about lost it but i just packed up, tarped the trailer load of clipping we had and split. what do people think, this is a hobby or what? i never have trouble with middle class customers. the well off seem to try this stuff every time i do a job. i'm just so mad.
