    As if we all didn't a little help retaining and getting customers in this economy ( here in Michigan where we've lost 30,000 jobs in the last 2 years and over 300,000 since 9/11), I walk into my house today and the wife has "the Oprah" on television. Low and behold, Orpah and her panel of experts are counseling people on how to get out of debt and live financially healthier. And then one woman says "I saved over $900 alone just by cancelling my lawn service! Oprah, that's $900 in my pocket!!! and I'm healthier for getting all that exercise!"

    Thanks Oprah - a big thumbs up from the very appreciative rust belt. BTW she failed to mention that if she cancelled her cable/satellite, she would have saved another $900 or so too - but then Oprah's ratings would fall...... and then Oprah would be out of a job..... and that would be bad. Grass rats get no respect.

    I think I saw that too, not a lot of thought in the things they were bringing up. If u further analize it, you would realize that if u quit the lawn service then u would have to buy a mower, have it serviced, pay for the fuel and have to hospitalize the hubby after he has his heart attack when the temp hits 100. We as lawncare "specialist" can run things much more efficiently than most average home owners can so what we charge we can profit from in our faster more efficient equipment & techniqe. Lot the Oprha gang stick to their addictive shopping sprees and they think there one up with there denile attitudes :clapping: :laugh:

    its the truth though.. none of you guys have houses where the house is in **** condition and they are driving not the best cars and you are wondering why are they spending a 1k a year for me to cut there grass. i cant complain lol as long as the world stays lazy i will stay getting paid. And you know people just get lazier and lazier as the years go on so i dont think money will even be an issue in the future but how lazy people are that they have to buy automatic vacuums and pay nannys to push there stroller while they are jogging
