    boar when i first started often asked guys if any spare graft was going
    this worked well especially when you have no graft they pass on there hsite
    ok its **** work but its cash
    also done it myself gave guy some steady work he was over the moon
    unfortunatly the wtat canvassed my best graft
    he was well told

    Next person who asks me for a lower price, I'm going to point out I'd go out of business which probably happened to their last guy who did it for too little.

    I lowered one on Friday to get it as I do the neighbour, I really wanted to get it. Trying to decide if I should lower the neighbours price now, or if pulled up, point out I do a 25% better job on theirs...
