cops hauled in my man

so, how do u guys feel about ratting other lawn care companies out? for things like, say....no pesticide license, no business license, etc. most of u guys say don't rat. well, today, i dropped my guy off to distribute flyers. within 20 min, the cops call me, we don't have a permit, to distribute flyers. come to find out....another lco company saw my guy, and called him in. hmmmm, i wonder if this other lco, is dotting his i's, and minding his p's and q's. is this right?

Are you serious, you have to have a permit to pass out fliers?

I would think you would just get a fine and I doubt they would haul your guy into the station for a thing like that.

Yeah, Bobby your in North Jersey right? A lot of areas up in North Jersey require a permit to do any kind of soliciting at a residence. I know of real estate agents up North that have to get a "Door Knockers" permit to go door to door. Also, believe it or not many cities and towns (even if you do not need a permit) have a certain time of the day that you are allowed to flier and door knock. I know of towns that will let you knock at someones door I believe it is from 9a to like 3p. How convenient. Right in the middle of the day when you know most are not home.

I've never heard of that either. Not around here anyways. I agree with a eye for a eye, but it will catch up with him somehow, sometime.
