|How it looked last year before sod|
"What's it worth to you to cut my grass?" I called out.
"What's it worth to you" he responded. Smart kid. I offered $20 and he eagerly accepted. I haven't thought much about it except that from now on, it will cost me $20 if I want him to cut my lawn again.
About a week ago his mom and I were talking and she told me that she made him cut my lawn at least one more time, implying more. She said that he had scammed me too much. I said thank you.
It makes sense. I didn't just screw myself but I set the market value for lawn cutting and if Old Man Icarus is willing to pay $20 how can anyone else, his parents included, expect less.
