    I’ve got to say I have been lucky not to be approached for a senior discount. Most of my clients have watched me as a little 8-year-old pushing dad’s mower. I always get a crack when I tell these clients that I’m not that little kid anymore. (I’m an old man at 36 yrs old, no offense intended to people my age or older.) I charge a fair price and these people realize how expensive it is to live in my area. <br>I wouldn’t give a senior discount because I would have to make it up with my other clients. This wouldn’t be fair. Businesses that do give senior discounts make it up with their other clientele.<br>Jean<br><p>----------<br>J-LC Landscaping & Maintenance Gardening<br>C-27 Ca Contr# 770044
