An 80 year old lady calls and says that nobody has ever edged to her satisfaction, and edging has always been a problem. The property looks like the guy that just quit did good edging to me. She wants all edging 4" deep. The job hangs on edging so I pull a walk-behind with 9" blade off trailer (I used it twice before for neglected properties) and took my best shot on a short run. Perfect she says, why don't those other guys use that (it's a Murray 3.5 hp!). So job is mow 1/3 acre, rake up and haul about 2 bushels magnolia leaves every mow, walk-behind 450 ft of edging, weedeat, weed beds, touchup trim eight shrubs every mow plus trim 50 ft hedge every mow. She says last guy charged $60. I asked why he quit and she said he is in a new business for better money. Payments, payments, payments, and I'm new. So I tell her walk edging at full depth is much, much slower than stick, and $90 is the best I can do -- and that the last guy was too low. She says come start tomorrow. I show up on-time the next day and she says four of her friends told her she was crazy for paying $90 and she changed her mind. Will pay $60, not one cent more, never paid more than that. Says I'm too high and will never get any jobs. I thank her profusely for calling me and giving me a chance, but sorry, I can't take the job at that price. She tried to pay me a little for the edging demonstration but I said no thank you, but thanks again for giving me the opportunity. I wasn't intending to overcharge the lady, but damn if I ain't wondering if I was wrong. She is not poor, but quite comfortable, not that it matters. Do you guys think I was too high? $90 is a lot of money, but there was a lot to do and it had to be just so.
