I look at it like the CL guys do, make it green... MAKE IT GREEN!!!


There was a story on the radio here, where two brothers, Mark and Willard had an ongoing bass fishing contest down in Arkansas. Whenever they would have the chance, they'd be out fishing, trying to out fish each other.

Well, whenever Mark would have to go out of town for whatever reason, Willard would take care of his house for him. Mow his grass, water the pets, etc. Willard got the smart idea of fertilizing the yard everytime he took care of the place, usually once every other week.

Now Mark hardly has time to go fishing anymore, because he's always out mowing the grass.

Sounds to me like Willard works for TG/CL

I Admit It

It ain't right, but I've done it. I try to find out first who cuts the grass. If its them, uh oh. I was told that Lesco settings were G for Grow, I for idiot, K for Kolor and M for Mow.

lol, thats funny.

I did know a guy that made a whole bunch of water ballons ( filled with round up ) and tossed them on a lawn at night. To a customer that never paid.

He keep on doing it for weeks,

I had some one stiff me for a month of plowing once, So for the next few storms I just put back as much snow as I took out for the storms he didnt pay for. I tried to stack most of it near the garage door, ya know, so it was close for him to shovel.

I know it was wrong, but boy did I feel good


I dont do that stuff anymore.

I plowed a buddy's driveway in one time, about 15" high and deep, but at least at the end of the driveway. Anyways, it was supposed to be his day off, and the wife was already supposed to be at work, and there was only one set of tracks in the snow in the driveway, so I figured he'd not gotten up yet to blow out the drive.

Anyways, long story short, it was HIM that had gone to work, gotten called in early, and the wife was still at home. Anyways, she had no idea how to run the snowblower, and had tried to drive SLOWLY over the hump at the end of the drive, therefore hanging the car up on the hump and not getting to work. She got fired.

It was the last thing I did after plowing for 30 hours, so when I finally woke up 8 hours later, I checked my messages and holy smokes, did I get it. My buddy thought it was VERY hilarious, but the wife never talked to me again.

They ended up divorced after 19 months anyways, so it's all for the better.

I see you need a code of Ethics

Here you go

CODE OF ETHICS
To conduct business in an honest and ethical manner.
To be environmentally responsible.
To be a leader in the community as a representative of the nursery industry.
To share knowledge with fellow nurserymen and to respect other members in the industry.
To be fair and truthful to employees, suppliers, and customers.
To abide by the regulations of the American association of nurserymen Standards for nursery Stock.

Here you go

Code of the real world
#1 coduct business and get paid upon completion with out having to chase you money
#2 report the neighbor for dumping his old oil down the storm sewer
#3# be the highest paid member of the nursery industry
#4 share your knowledge so that all the other nurserymen can underbid you and put you out of business
#5 Tell your employees what you make and what a small % they are being paid and the customers also in order to help you go out of business sooner
#6 abide by the regulations of the American association of nurserymen Standards for nursery Stock and report to the unemployment office to start to receive benefits.
