    Okay here I go again...I serviced this account twice...business near the highway...so sometimes the city?state crews mow....anyway the owner stopped me in March as I was mowing another customer...told me " Mow my place once a month"...gave him a price of $45.00 per visit...mowed in March and then April...same time of the month...went by last month....it was mowed....pi$$ed me off, so as I am mowing my regular customer...I'm fuming....I decide to stop and see WTF is happening....assistant manager comes out tells me the State mowed, just check back....today I get to my regular customer an hour earlier than norm.....a freaking kid was mowing this guys business.....he had to be about 10 to 12...just alittle bigger than the handle of his crappy MTD...then bad thoughts start...maybe this kid will chop his foot off and sue this jerk.....anyway get home and delete this fool from my contact list.....don't need him...just wish people would be honest and not beat around the bush.... :realmad:

    I sure wouldn't fret over a 45 dollar a month (one time at that) cut.

    Exactly. Gives you that much more time to get better ones. Hang in there. My 2005 has been good but alot of turn over for cheaper prices. Lost 5 last month and picked up 7. I figure about Mid july it will get better with all the cheapos coming to reason that there 10 a cut guy wont show up in 100+ heat.
