Actually, it sounds to me like you may have actually worked for TruGreen-ChemLawn. Which in reality was just TruGreen with the ChemLawn name tacked onto it, after they were acquired by ServiceMaster and merged with TG in 1992. What you are describing was the typical TruGreen sales nightly "boiler room" that they had before the National "Do Not Call" list was implemented by the Feds.
