I do have to admit, the " low ballers suck " or " I can't afford gas no more" threads are the ones that usually catch my eye, but reading some of this stuff makes me think I am stupid to stay in this industry.... and makes me want to not spend too much time on Lawnsite. I have the same problems as most guys. PITA customers, breakdowns, lowballers trying to take my accounts away, cost of fuel, aches and pains and sunburns, etc.... But I will have to say this. For the most part I enjoy what I do, and I feel like I make a decent living doing what I do. I am a high school drop out and I would never be able to work uptown in a skyscraper with all the suits and ties.... I take pride in that I am making more money than alot of those guys and in a way I have fun doing it. Alot of guys probably won't mention it, but when I go on vacation, or over the winter break, I look forward to getting on my mower and cutting some gas. I love the way a lawn looks when I am done, makes me feel proud of what I accomplished. I caught a pair of bunny rabbits the other day and took them home for my 5 year old son to see... caught a 4 foot black snake the other day and after messing with him for a few minutes I put him off in the woods to go about his business, for me that stuff is fun. Occasionally I get " Burned out " with what I do, but just a good 3 day weekend off, or a short vacation and I am back in the game. I just have a hard time reading this site from time to time, it just seems like such a drag when you read some of these threads.
