    Do nice guys finish last???......I was mowing today, homeowner goes to the mailbox and picks up his mail, I stop and talk to him for a second, as he picks though his stuff, he hands me a flier from another LCO.....instead of tossing it, I read it......fast-foward...as I head to my second job, I look at the flier again, and I call this guy, I warn him about the Postmaster and the rules about fliers... he didn't know the rules.....seemed like a nice guy.....was I wrong to warn this guy? i would hope that someone would warn me about something I was doing......Would you have done the same??

    I don't think you did wrong. What goes around, comes around. You may not get the return you think you will, but good things will happen from doing good things....

    I would tell him. I saw this guy in town that is alot more profesional than I was, I figured that he wouldnt speak to me or figure I was after his work. Well we met and taLKed and now we are good friends and respect each others accounts and if he needed me if he got sick I would be there and I think he would do the same for me. So yes I would tell him, ya never know when you may need the favor returned

    I have heard of some guys that got in trouble for putting their flyers in mailboxes. They paid a BIG fine and didn't get to cut that season.

    I'd do the same thing, let him know. you never know if you might be making a friend there. I'd rather have many friends than enemies.

    Thanks folks, I was always taught black and white, good and bad......nowadays things seem gray to a lot of people.....I even went as far as telling him about LawnSite.....he seemed pretty interested in what I was telling him....I guess we aren't all bad!! :D
