    Hi guys and gals
    this is quite funny

    This year a out of town Lawn aeration company tried to move in to the colorado
    springs area
    they placed lawn aeration sighs evey where they could on owners property
    street corrners ect.
    every where i went on my route i saw them and lost a few customers to them
    Friday night on the news they made head lines

    the BBB has gotten 276 compaints against them
    they would tell the the customer one thing and do another
    it was qiute intresting
    and when the news comapny tried to get there side of the story
    they told them to leave
    and had no comment
    i just laughed
    on saturday i got together with some of my lawn care buddies
    for coffee
    and we decided if we see those signs the we would write the home oner a letter intodosing our selfs
    since they have done this it has brought down the cost of areating
    a lot to about 25.00 a yard if your lucky
    i think they were doing them for 18.00 to 20.00 bucks a yard
    how would u guys handel some thing like this
    this company is giving us good guys a bad name and getting in two our walletts

    Well, if you are going to be "writing the home oner a letter intodosing our selfs", I'd certainly make sure to use a word processing program with a working spell checker.

    You're liable to come across as "Jethro from the Block" and may end up with the same type of customers.
