Dear Bookie,

That's very true (about hating it if you know you aren't going to make any money on it). I took this one job for maybe a bit less than the standard charge, but still, it was good money. The lady was originally saying that she'd pay me about half of what the going price was. Heh. She also swore up and down that she'd be surprised if it took me more than 90 minutes to clean the whole house from stem to stern. It took me, with no breaks, 3 hours and 45 minutes. I was very glad that I hadn't come down to her original price - otherwise I would have been fuming.

Thanks for the input.
