    Go to the 48th and Crenshaw and ask for Jack. Save the money you would spend on the lime and buy some beans. Use the pressure washer and spray (lightly). If you water it, they WILL grow.

    Is this serious? If you are, sell the cpu and buy some food. If not, you sure had me going.*trucewhiteflag*

    Take an hourly job thru Winter, go to school, get a cdl licence to fall back on, invest in your business and come up with a game plan that will put you in better shape next year, advertise heavily next Spring, etc.

    punch in your zip code and choose package handler/driver helper there is a job within 10 miles of you

    you can work EARLY morning or late evening so plenty of time for LCO activities and you will get benefits even as part time which should be important as a family man....good luck

    I worked for UPS...lemme tell ya. You think Lawn Care can be tough work?? lol You aint seen nothing til you work at UPS. But there were many small business owners who worked pre-load with me...and thats because after about 6 months...they pay full benefits--100%!! Like I said...it's hard work though.

    You better be a man if you want to load trucks for UPS. Brutal work. Cutting lawn will be for relaxation after that!

    He still says to this day UPS was worse.
