people that claim they'll take legal action about mailboxes are ******rs. I've always thrown my flyers in the newpaper slot, talked to postmaster and they said nothing illegal about the mail box slot. and about 95% or more of homes with mailboxes have them. if there isn't, i wedge it under the box. Never had a complaint, and was actually infront of a mailman a few times and stopped them each time and all said they had no problem with what i was doin. Like you said, it was probably a competitor being a ******.

I'm going to do some work on the truck today since its nice out, then going to get a bunch of print work done for signs and uniforms. I'll put flyers out next week I think, still too early for alot of people to think about it.

WTF is up with these people against me and im 1 of 10 people but im getting the wrath of this no life bastards... im sure most have had calls like this... but damn and they are all from PRIVATE numbers. No balls to call me with their real number or tell me even their house number so i dont do it again...

my response at the end was... mam' sorry for your hassle and I apologize in advance that you will most likely be seeing my postcard again sorry in advance. CLICK...

eh just keep putting them out. I've never had anyone call and complain but dont let that one stop you. Don't listen to the ******rs saying to get a real job either. If you stay professional and do a good job you'll be making more than them. I had a few friends say that to me when I first started, 2 are out of work and have been bums on unemployment for a year now and the other one got a $2 an hour pay cut just recently, yet I keep going up in sales every year and have at 23 what they barely have at 35.

JABBERS how much did you pay for your trailer im looking to get one and I also want to get it wrapped. The guy in my area wanted over 3 grand for wrapping but I found out you can get it online for about 800 and do it yourself....
