My inlaws received a quote to trim their tall hedges, bushes, and weed their flowerbeds. When Amy told me what the quote was I was in shock! "You're kidding me! They are trying to rip off your mom and dad," I said. I then volunteered to do it.
Saturday morning we got up and went their house, (about 5 minutes from ours), loaded down with trimmers, extension cords, ladder, etc.
Four hours later, covered in scratches and cuts, I looked at Amy and said, "That quote.......that was a bargain! Can we get that guys number?" I was kidding of course and we finished the job, but, Wow! What a job it was.
it is not the first time I have betten off more than I could chew!
