    Enclosed trailer and you left it outside?

    I never leave anything outside anymore, after hearing the horror stories from you guys.

    I always, always, always take the extra 5-10mins with my guys unloading all the equipment into my garage. The only stuff I leave outside are the brooms, rakes and shovels.

    All the power equipment gets stored in the garage..

    That sounds like a huge theft to recover from.

    Thank God you are insured for the equipment, we hope you can keep up with your responsibilities to the customers

    BTW....today on the news in Maryland I heard a guy got 14 years for shooting and killing a punk who was armed with a gun and trying to steal his car. There were 4 punks in his car, and he only eliminated the one with the gun....and he gets 14 years in jail.


    What is wrong with our prosecutors anyway? What happened to the second amendment and the right to bear arms and protect one's life and property? The prosectors jail a man and call him a vigilante when he was simply defending his life and property. What happened to "All Cattle Poachers Will Be Shot On Sight?"

    If these punk-stealing pond-scum thought they had a high likelihood of getting lead poisoning they might not steal a man's work tools. But they know that if they get caught they get bonded out and basically get away with it.
