    Lawn site needs to add a new forum dedicated just for posting complaints about scrubs. I've not been here for a year yet, and it was old before the first time I saw a post about it. They're here, they will alwys be here, they are a fact of life and are the cost of doing business. Those customers that jump for a $10.00 or $20.00 cut in price after serveral years of service aren't the ones I want in my client base and those that accept the "It's so good, I can't beieve it's true bid" are ignorant and deserve what they get.

    That would be a good forum. I look at it this way. If you have been a LCO of 5 years and never been under bid. YOU MIGHT BE A SCRUB!!!!

    I think those that continually complain about them are one themselves. A seperate forum would be great for that waste of conversation. If I get out bid by a few bucks, kudos to the other company for winning the bid. If I lose it by half or more, I consider it a blessing to not get that customer.

    Well said, Xpnd and Randy. Every trade has scrubs. Painters, carpenters, roofers, etc.... The cream will always rise to the top!!!

    So i am to assume that all you guys that complain about scrubs started your business as a professional?
    You knew it ALL the day you started your business?
    I doubt it.

    A scrub forum would be nice to weed out 1/2 the crap that gets posted in this forum.

    I agree, I am so sick of the posts about scrubs. People complain that other companies can work cheaper, maybe they need to worry about their own costs and not everyone elses. Just because someone may be cheaper does not make them a scrub. Companies with no debt and not alot tied up in equipment will be able to be a little cheaper and still make a nice profit, just like any other industry. Southwest Airlines and Walmart are good examples.
