I don't mind anyone trying to break into the lawn business, we all started some where. This one is just too good. I have about 20 townhomes in one small development and recently lost one. It was a 2 week cut deal but I was there anyway so I took it. This spring a sign goes up on the mail box, a guy in the neighborhood is mowing lawns. He says on the flier he wants to mow lawns till he finds his dream job. That's an a-hole tip off right there. His flier says "He lives in the neighborhood, has access to mowing equipment", (always good idea if you cut lawns) and " he is a pleasant conversationalist" (I'm dead serious). Anyway he took this lawn from me. So He's out there cutting Thursday with an electric lawn mower and electric weed eater. The weed eater is about 3 feet tall and he's plugged into the customers house. All I could do was just laugh to myself. A match made in heaven. I can't wait till August when he finds a job in the AC and these people are high and dry. I can't wait till they call me back. I am definately breaking out the Bobby Gedd surcharge hand book on them. $10 for a gate, $10 for each bicycle I touch $20 everytime I step in dog dew. Oh the humanity! I laugh every time I think of it.
