Hello. well my day has been great. The 1 new once amonth accounts I picked up I lost today and another new one I have not even mowed yet. A lady fro church (yeah I should know better) wanted me to look at a job last month and give a price. She has a 3/4 acre lot and a very large area between fence a ditch to weedaeat. Mow time about 25 minutes and weeteat about an hour. I went by last week and sprayed the ditch with roundup (about 10 bucks worth) and went and mowed today and still had to weedeat. took about 1.25 hours and 40 minute drive round trip. When I finished she asked me how much and I told her 60 like last time. You would thought I had slapped her. She thought the 60 was just for thr first time and it would ne cheaper next time. Said she could not afford that much. Im standing there soaking with sweat after all the ditch climbing wedeating and I just stood there flabergasted. I told her she did not owe me a thing and merry christmas. NO she said I want to give you something. I told her if she could not afford it she needs it worse than me and turned and walked off really ticked off. Went to next yard I got yesterday, quoted her 70, not a big yard but LOADED with bushes. about 1.5 hours weedeat and 20 mins to mow. Well she suddenly changes her mind and cant afford it anymore and lives in a upscale neighborhood and the yard looks like it has not been done in a year. GRRR Please tell me what Im doing wrong? Im just about one notch from giving up. Trying to keep a positive attitude but it is getting the crap beat out of it. Im in the worse shape since I started 5 years agH well... oh BTW lost another 2 last week, customer sold due to health priblems on one, other one paved the whold front yard (a business) 5 yards and going down for the count, had 24 last Ausust. Bobby, wheres the shovel?
