i got a call last week for a mowing job, the guy told me that the guy he had mowed his house and the lady next door. but he needed a price for his house, so i went to look at it, gave him a price, he then tells me that his wife has a cousin in town that mows, and she needed to get a price from him to. i told them to think it over and give me a call when or if they decide. my price was $60.00 for his lawn only,which is 1 1/2 acres,with tons of trim work. i didnt even look at the ladies next door, the estimate was for his home... so today i get a call from them, he tells me that he spoke to the lady, she gave him the go ahead, and she is willing to pay me $25, and he will pay me 30 because he got me the ladies house, then he tells me that he will not pay any sales tax because the guy they had didnt charge them! This industry is getting worse every year !
