Contractors Make a Killing on the $20 grass cut

Was working today inside a home and another contractor was mowing now keep this in mind the grass height was over 62 inches this contractors tells me they got this yard for 20 bucks and had 70 more all for 20 bucks poor soul. I told them good luck with that! You cannot make any money I told them I bid the yard was not going to touch it for 20 bucks I guess since it was a CV loan they found a poor sapp that would do it for the price they wanted They also made mention that they did a 35cyd cleanout for 125.00 and when they went to the dump there dump bill was 120.00 Keep in mind though they said they made 80 thousand last year WHATEVER!

During my first visit at the property over two weeks ago that tall didn't have to worry about retaking measurements this time since they where whacking away at it
