    You can write whatever date on the check you want but the post mark on envelope doesn't lie!

    No I will not waive the first month payment of a 10 month payment plan bc you took three weeks to reply to estimate

    If I send you a direct mail post card in your mailbox, yes I service your area

    No the wind blowing neighbors leaves on hard day after clean up is not my fault.

    My business is not "let's make a deal" it's a business, price is the price period, kinda like every single store you go to.

    Yes I know it's hot outside, I'm in it all day as you tell me that thru carjacked open car window.

    The guys writing to this stuff are most likely the ones using black & decker trimmer and murray mower from walmart, who have absolutely no idea what it is to run commercial equipment, insueance and the rest... and they probanly think they can do a better job than us.

    They say that if you leave the clippings your lawn will thrive...... If you mow weekly it will, if every 3 weeks- your lawn will die under the clumps.

    Here is one of the 10 things:
    If you send your rude child out to boss me around and to learn "management skills", I will teach little Timmy a real life lesson about what happens when you mouth off and boss someone 8 times your size:realmad:

    "My workers chug your beer when they should be cutting your lawn."
    Well, no, we always cut first! lol.
    pretty lame article-but it does reveal an unmonitored and unregulated industry.
