    This flyer was in my mailbox today. No postage, someone just stopped by and put them in every mailbox in the neighborhood.

    I look at this and I feel it displays someone who will do a so-so job. When I have people work on my yard I want them to be professional and passionate about doing the job right.

    I hang flyers off mailbox flags lots of people call. What made you feel as if a so-so job would be done? It is against the law to put the flyer in the mailbox. No complaints about hanging them and my mailcarrier said he liked my idea.

    It doesn't bother me that it was in my mailbox, I brought it up for discussion.

    It appears to me that this person did this flyer in 5 minutes. I prefer to hire people who do good quality work and for that service I will pay more.

    Are they licensed, Insured?

    How are we suppose to know?:p


    Should have at least blackened out his phone number, before you posted the flyer.

    yeah, I wouldn't want someone to work on my yard if they cant take the time to make a decent flyer

    but, I woudl call them and ask them a bunch of questions, like if they are insured and licenced, and what they mean by "All work is guaranteed"

    Why? the number is being "advertised" anyway. What's the difference?
