    Are you doing any work today? Weather has cleared out here and I have two jobs lined up. I was just grabbing a bite to eat before I hit it.

    LOL no, I had 3 jobs lined up Wednesday, but it started raining that morning, and has been raining ever since. Still raining. We have gotten about 4 1/2-5 inchs already, we need this rain. Jobs will have to wait till next week. Customers know I don't work in the rain and they don't want me to either. Later

    I don't work in the rain either. If the sidewalk is not dry I won't even consider cutting the lawn. Just leave a mess if you do. But it dry out and temp about 50 degrees. Got to power rake and fill low spots with amended soil and seed one yard. The other is just a spring clean-up. Looks good for today and tomorrow working wise.

    Ya, there are crews around here that work in the rain and leave ruts everywhere, that is why i have so many customers because they do that crap, not good.

    :hammerhead: I don't like to be spoiled, but no I'm not spoiled. I started young. Everything is paid for except the truck. I bought everything cash, no credit. My parents never helped me out. Nice try though.

    i don't think hes spoiled , he probably worked hard, saved his money, and bought his equipment. me and my twin had our trucks, plows, and equipment since we were 18/19. i started working at 14 for a landscaping company and just saved my money to open my own, and learned everything i could while working for him. me and my x boss are still friends, and i occasionally work for him landscaping or plowing. so he could be lying, spoiled, or he just work hard for his stuff. he seems to be honest .

    I started the same way you did. I did work for some baseball fields by me for a few years. Then, in junior high i had shoulder dislocation during football and was not bale to do anything for a while. I was a basketball manager, and the coach mowed yards on the side, so I helped him out on the weekends. Finally, I started on my own, and getting my own accounts. Buying my own equipment. I still help him out all the time. He also has a high shcool kid that helps him, and he also has a few yards he does on the side, and he is one hard worker. So, no I'm not spoiled and I'm glad I'm not. I don't see where you can get in life with everything being handed down to you.
