Got a little JD compact with a backhoe on it. Had a feller call me up about digging up a spot for a flower bed.
He didn't ask about money until I'd loaded up and hauled over there. When he asked, I told him I had a one-hour minimum to cover my loading and hauling time, and it'd be $35 (this was a few years back) and he pitched a fit because it was only gonna take me 15 or 20 minutes.
I mentioned that a decent shovel cost about the same, loaded back up, and drove away.
I can't bring myself to pull into somebodies yard with $35,000 worth of equipment (including truck and trailer) and sit very long listening to them complain about spending $35.
