    ... and then when he talks to the customer you get in trouble for perjury as well as a huge fine for applying unlicensed.

    i just tell them that the charge was for the organic material that i put down.

    this stuff in the green bag is just a free charge.

    it won't fly, here is the catch: if you admit it, on the spot, you get a teeny weeny little fine, i think it's $800 here. BUT, if you lie, and they investigate you, and prove you are applying, it's $3,000 per day, PER APLICATION. in other words, they walk up to you on 8/2/05, you lie. they investigate you, they have the proof they need, by 8/10/05, that's 8 days, times $3,000= $24,000 for ONE APLICATION. if they catch you on 10 apps.... :cry: :cry:

    Really, do you think you are the first guy to think of that one? BG's right, better to just be truthful

    IF you don't OWN the property you are applying on you have to have a license to apply there. Dosn't matter if you are doing it for a fee, free or if you are paying the property owners money for you to be there.
