    As I posted somewere I'm making a new lawn mowing business and I'd like to ask a couple of questions. Not that anyone here will be involved just say if this was someone who knocked at your door.


    1) If a 14 year old boy knocked at your door and offered to mow your lawn what would you do? (Lets say your lawn needs mowing)

    2) Would you accept his business card?

    3) Do you believe 2.50 (5.14 Aus dollars) Is a fair price?

    4) If no do you have any suggestions at what a fair price might be?

    5) Would you consider a fortnightly subscription to have your lawn mowed every two weeks?

    6) Would you consider letting him do any other jobs?

    Depends on whether he had his own lawn mower, whether I knew him, what he looked like ect.

    2) What you accept his business card?

    I assume this means, 'Would you accept his business card?' And yes.

    3) Do you believe 2.50 (5.14 Aus dollars) Is a fair price? Yeah, very fair.

    4) If no do you have any suggestions at what a fair price might be? Between 2.50 and 5.00

    5) Would you consider a fortnightly subscription to have your lawn mowed every two weeks? If he seemed to be good at it, then yes.

    6) Would you consider letting him do any other jobs? If he seemed to be competent at mowing the law, then yeah maybe.

    1) Let him mow the lawn

    2) I would you know, I would be thinking well he's keen, and this way if someone else I knew needed the lawn mowing, I could pass on the card.

    3) Too cheap,

    4) It depends on the size of the lawn, but if you are talking about both front and back for $5.14 AU that's really too cheap, I would be making it around $10AU so what 4 pounds I guess.

    5) Nah I wouldn't it's too soon for my lawn, but perhaps on your business card you could have a subscription thing where you can request fortnightly, monthly, 6 weekly, every 2 months and each quarter.

    6) If you did a good job, then yeah sure, what else can you do mate?

    No, tbh. Why pay for something you can do yourself?

    2) What you accept his business card?
    Yes, but I'd check it for small print first. Can't be too careful accepting things. You think it's just a condom, but then they tell you it's legally binding. Gutted.

    3) Do you believe 2.50 (5.14 Aus dollars) Is a fair price?
    You're selling yourself short, CD man

    4) If no do you have any suggestions at what a fair price might be?
    I believe a fiver would be a fair price if you were too lazy to do it yourself

    5) Would you consider a fortnightly subscription to have your lawn mowed every two weeks?
    Personally, seeing as I wouldn't have it done once, no.

    6) Would you consider letting him do any other jobs?
    I'd pay him to bugger off.

    Nah I wouldn't let you inside the house to be honest so the hoovering would be out.

    Maybe raking some leaves, car washing I guess, good luck.

    Maybe I'd get more for 1 job but no doubt I'd get more customers than if I charged 5.

    Sure, I'd let him. It's not like he's charging me for it.

    Yes. No harm in it. I've accepted much worse things.

    Way too cheap. At least 5.

    Of course. Again, it's not like he's charging me for it.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Potentially, I'd think about it. Depends what they look like, if they look like chavs, then they can GAGF

    2) Would you accept his business card?

    yeah

    3) Do you believe 2.50 (5.14 Aus dollars) Is a fair price?

    Very, very, very fair

    4) If no do you have any suggestions at what a fair price might be?



    5) Would you consider a fortnightly subscription to have your lawn mowed every two weeks?

    Yes, dammit it needs it

    6) Would you consider letting him do any other jobs?

    No
