Yeah palmettos are ugly looking untill they get tall enough and the trunk is all trimmed up nicely.

So I guess I gotta dig it up huh, maybe I'll get someone else to take the chance so I don't get fined.

Today I am on the veterans expressway heading north. An Isuzu NPR with a crew cab and landscaper body towing a 6x 12 with the rustiest WB passes me. The dirtbert in the back seat hangs his bare ass out the window and the one in the passenger seat flips me off. What the hell is wrong with people these days. I would have thought it funny until I realized how much behavior like that hurts our industry. I am still trying to figure out why 4 guys, big truck (clapped out) and 1 Wb (clapped out). The amount of crap and idiots out there today is bewildering.

In the super high $$$ neighborhood I work in on thursdays, I have never seen any crews working without their shirts on. In almost 3 years of going to the same places, no one has worked looking like a scab out there.

Well this year they are all shirtless. I would fire the person in less than a second for looking like an idiot on one of my customers lawns and making my company look like some stupid "redneck" company!

I think there is a place and time for people to be shirtless and then for them to be dressed, when working it is time to be dressed in the flipping company shirt!

I am also seeing cars pulling lawn trailers. A stinking Chevy Citation pulling what looked like a 5x8 with a Lowes JD Eztrack and trimmers and blowers in the hatch back and again a shirtless fool driving it around.

Oh no there have always been the mentally impaired bottom grubbers from the shallow end of the gene pool. They still don't infringe on my business. It just seems like the professionals (us) are the minority now. I have never in 16 years seen a dispay like the one I posted about. Hardly a day passes now where some scrub doesn't flip me off or give me the stink eye. Too much hate going on.

I just laugh about it all. They aren't affecting my business, that's right now at least. But, everyone's got bills. You've got to applaud some of these people (I said SOME) for trying to make a buck and feed their kids or keep a roof over their heads. But I agree, there are a bunch of dumba**es out there too!
