I went to quote an old lady last week, front yard and one pass in the ally only. Because of small amount I told her 25, if she agreed to weekly, her response was a loud high pitch "ooooh" it sounded like I stabbed her. I said "is that too much" she responded "well I'm paying 10 now. So too me if she had a service, and called me, she wants me to beat their price. She told me shes unhappy with how they work, they were supposed to trim her shrubs, and shes still waiting, and they dont answer the phone. After I explained how a business makes profit , and how I cant do it. she said, she understands, but shes an old single senior citizen and "please". Before I walked off I told her "I do free estimates, but if I charged, I wouldn't even do that for ten." I told her to hire a kid, and when she calls another company, before they schedule a quote, tell them your budget... I just wanted to share.
