    In a post weeks ago I stated I lost a Commercial prop. to a lowballer for 10 bucks. Well guess who calls back asking if we can mow for him. I knew exactly what would happen with this other company, all of the crews speak spanish (no big deal) they mowed during the day, where as we were right after closing (530ish pm) and they didnt bag a thing, blowing rocks, dirt and dust all over some very nice cars. We took him back as HE sated HE was an F'ing A-hole and an idiot for switching in the first place. Now if this same feeling could be put out around the whole lawn care community..that would be great!

    Congratulations! I'm glad to see someone finally was able to get one back. I've heard a lot of people talk about it for a whole lotta years here at LS but you're the first one.:)
