    Wait, now I've had coffee and I'm waking up. I can do the weighted average for if the batch gets rejected and compensating for all other pending HITs if you like. Feel like a quantitative risk analysis? I'm your man*. Formal and rigorous quantitative risk analysis is fun!

    It baffles my mind that an HOA will admit they've had continuous complaints about the lawn care service - for years - and then turn around and keep hiring them because they're the cheapest.

    Me: "Our lawn is terrible."
    HOA: "Sorry to hear that. You should hire a different lawn care service. Many of your neighbors have done so."
    Me: "Okay, that's a hassle, but it'd be worth it. How much of a discount do I get on my HOA fees now that I won't be using that service?"
    HOA: "LOL"
    Me: "No, seriously, you've told me your lawn care service is rubbish and that I have to hire my own. I shouldn't have to pay for a service that you guys know is awful."
    HOA: "LOL!!"

    I actually made them come out to my house two summers ago, agree that it was terrible, and then I wrote up a proposal with milestones that would be measurable to indicate success. I don't think they took me seriously at the time, because they just kind of went "yeah, okay".

    Now we've passed all the milestones and they've failed to meet them. I wrote to the HOA last night to gently remind them of our agreement, and quoted the milestones that I'm sure they thought I'd forget about.

    Sadly, I'm quite sure I still won't get anything out of it, because there's no way they're going to make an exception for just me to pay lower fees when many of my neighbors have already acquiesced and are paying extra for an alternate lawn care company while our HOA approved company sits back and collects the same money for less work.
