My wife is in the Air Force and we have two children who attend daycare on the base. I went to get them Friday afternoon and the grass has not been cut yet. I asked them inside who was to do it and they said they no longer have the funding to pay for it. The company charge $160 a week last year and they can not afford it. They said they cant even afford to get estimates from people because the funding is not there. I asked them if they would allow me to cut it for free for this week and after a few phone calls they allowed me to do it. I did this because of the children. They can not reduce my kids costs or work around the system because it is the government. I would like to know what you all would have done in this situation. I have thought of maybe taking it on weekly and just having the parents throw a little money in to cover my expenses. I would only be working for tips.
