    Wow! Sounds like a real estate contract. Anything in there about if they give you the contract that you have to give them your first born(lol). Hey I would through in a cluase about "Free bisc. n gravy, sweet tea, and chicken fried steak". Anyway, 14 pages that is a lot.

    Maybe that is where Bobby was for about a month.. Writing Cracker Barrels new contract.. and then having to trim it down to only 14 pages from the 30 he had.

    I can tell you this, if the corp files bankruptcy and they own you money,there is a chance of adios denaro.We lost a fortune when a chain electronics store filed.

    14 pgs is a bit much for a landscape agreement. For me, that would set of the "WARNING" light that they may be a pita to service...my contracts are 3 pages and are painfully detailed so 14 would make me think they are off their rockers...( now I just made an accidental funny!)

    Cracker Barrel and rockers...get it?? I think I have too much time on my hands....
