    Good day all,

    We some sorry news in the landscaping industry for Ct today. Well, not bad, just foolish and down right assinine in some cases. Read em and see what you think...

    1)
    Driving to school this morning and in passing teh four courners (Brookfield,Ct) I see a large plume of dust in the air and traffic is stopped dead. I thought it was a fire and a building was burining. The dust suddenly subsided and traffic began to suddely move again, just as I drove through it started again. It turned out so be come jackass doing a parking lot cleanup (sand) with a little wonder push blower, blowing teh sand INTO THE STREET packed with cars during morning rush hour. Sorry but it just dosent get any dumber and assinine than that.

    2)
    Coming home from school, I stop into a building in Brookfield to deliver a letter. This is also a property which the co i worked for last summer used to mow. I saw a guy trimming and thought it was my boss working. Turns out to be a scrub :angry: I continued to drive and at the top of the hill is a ford escort wagon with a kmart special $99 mower, and a handheld weedeater blower. I was fumed, we used to do a darn good job of the place. On the way down, I asked the guy how he got the account, he said in broken english, he outbid the other "*******" by 10 dollars for it. This just made me mad, plus it looked like sh**.

    Well, sorry for the long post but these two cases today just took the cake :D.

    Thanks for reading the ct bs

    Don't blame the clowns because of $10, the former customer had to make the decision. Maybe they went to clown college too.

    Okay, well this beats all. Just about 30 minutes ago I left my health club, in Newtown, about 10 miles from 4 corners in Brookfield only to turn the corner to find a huge cloud of "smoke" rising up in the night sky. Low and behold it's not smoke, it's sand and there is 2 mexicans with a station wagon cleaning out the parking lot of a small commerical building. Funny or what? I am laughing my a** off right now. Same guys? Yeah, I bet.
