    Cubic yard. HMMMMMM.........

    By logical thinking, that means you have a cube that is 3'x3'x3'..........


    Can you do math? I realize it may have been a long day and all, but how much simpler can it get?

    I'm always amazed that people can't do math. Even simple stuff. We're not talking advanced calculus......

    Just an observation.

    With math classes in school teaching kids how to use a calculator instead of multiplication tables, well nothing surprises me.

    I'm even more amazed at how intelligence displaces tact.

    Make sure you figure your amounts carefully and not overbuy mulch. The cocoa mulch only needs to be 1" thick, and 1 bag covers roughly 25 sq ft.

    I guess I'm more amazed that people can't do simple math. That's why I have no tact with this. I've posted several times how to come up with cubic yard quantities, all that has to be done is a simple search. I know I could just simply ignore the fact that people can't do simple math, but I guess my reasoning in the back of my mind is that if they can't do the math, how can they survive in this business, or any business for that matter..........
