    Had a lady call this morning wanting a one-time cut for her backyard only. I told her it would be $35 minimum, but I would have to take a look before I could give her a price. I loaded up and went over there (about 2 miles from my house). The back yard was solid bermuda and grown up BAD! Anyway, I cut it twice and did no trimming. Just unloaded the mower cut and left. Took less than an hour to cut and I got $60.00 for the job! She was thrilled to death and said she would be calling me back! I thought this was funny after the quote I gave the other day on the thread "stuck to my guns". Once again, you younger guys take note of these type things. The customer today lived in a approx. $170,000 house and was more than willing to pay whatever it took. Read the other thread and you will understand! :D
