    come over to our house and I will let you meet my dad and mom they have finally figured out that they do not have anymore room for trees in the yard so now they are planting them outside the fence I really think they are doing this on purpose because they are in their 80's and they are leaving me their mess to clean upor rather deal with . LOL
    It gets better they ask us why the grass will not grow

    You made a mistake in talking hours and dollars per hour. People get very upset when they hear big numbers like $44 per hour. Most people look at us as the "lawn boy" who should be making a small amount. And if you have other jobs that you make that much then move on!!
