    I'm in Northeastern Ohio, and found a newsletter in my mailbox today. It said, cut any lawn for 12.00. So I call them, I told them I have an acre of land that needs mowed. The boy told me that that was just an estimate price(Strike One). I said that not what you have on your newsletter. I also asked him about sales tax and he doesn't charge sales tax (Strike Two). He doesn't Edge or Trim, if you want that service it's more money (Strike Three). Your out Of Here Ha. Ha.

    do you turn in the kids that sell lemonade at the end of your street as well?

    complaining about the tax is one thing but telling on him because he was handing out newsletters is sad buddy. if u are a well off company you shouldnt be bothered by little people like him let him learn the lesson the hard way
