    I saw an ad placed on the cork board at one of the stops on my milk route yesterday, and just had to pass this one along. Obviously, it is a kid.

    "Will mow yards in town twice a week. $5 for small yards, $10 for large yards. First week free."

    And you guys thought you had some stiff competition. :laugh:

    I think he is doing it for fun, because that pretty much just covers the cost of fuel and maybe a dollar to put in his piggy bank. Lets see for 5 dollars you can get roughly 1.4 gallons of gas.
    Talk about screwing yourself and other LCO's over....

    Mommy and Daddy are probably paying for the gas.

    There is a sign in a yard near y house that says "Will Mow Grass for TIPS"

    If I didn't think it was some kid out mowing instead of inside playing playstation I would rip it out of the ground.
