For whatever it is worth.. Back in "06" I used my personal truck to work one day. I got stopped by Royal Oak Motor Carrier Enforcement for a brake light out on the trailer. I didnt have Fire Extinguisher,Triangles, or Flares and my truck wasnt lettered (being my personal truck) Even started to give me a hard time because the trailer didnt have brakes... He was ready to write me a whole bunch of tickets but because the trailer I had and the truck combined weight was under 10,000 lbs.. He just wrote me a ticket for the brakelight being out. I do have a chauffers license, so that wasnt an issue.

I have all proper lettering/numbers/etc on my personal truck for that reason. I dont do a lot with it, but it still pulls stuff now and then. I still have to get medical cards, fire ext, triangles, etc for all the trucks though.

Just a random thing that "made my day" today..

My partner and I were walking into Home Depot today and a lady flew down the "loading area" at about 30 mph and almost took out Sean, myself, and a father with two young kids. We all looked around and said "wow" and then Sean said "Can we go push a cart into her car?" and I said "No.. lets yell at her" So we went down and gave her a good talking to. She denied that she came close to anyone, said to go f with someone else, and told us to get the he** out of there. She also sounded more like a man than a woman. We kept it going for a minute.. it was a lot of fun. All this being done with Lawn Pro shirts on. Police showed up shortly after, I think the other guy must have called.

I love my job.

either

PayPal or mail check / money order $5.50 per set plus .50 to cover a stamp and envelope. The extra .50 over $5 is to cover the PayPal fee I will send them to you. I am going there on Monday so I need a total to get before then.

my PayPal email is metro.landscape@comcast.net

mailing address is: Metro Lawn 23205 Gratiot Ave. #271 Eastpointe, MI 48021

Hi there, I need all three...med card for myself, sticker for my trailer and a sticker for my truck. I was a mechanic in a previous life, so i have no problem doing my own inspection. Thank you!
