    Hi, guys. Well, I put out the fert with dimension yesterday. There was no rain in the forecast, but it ended up raining for about 2 hours after I put on my fert with dimension. Do you think I need to do it again? I'm so pissed. This stuff's not cheap! And neither is my time.

    Jason, why ask the same question in two forums? Is it just to make sure everyone knows that you don't read the label? If you keep shouting wolf all over, pretty soon noone will hear you.

You must be the type wearing dickies and dirty shirts to work. <p>Jason here is a book you forgot to read while you were in college of eight years and<br>now mow lawns for a living:<p>This grandfather of all people-skills books was first published in 1937. It was an overnight hit, eventually selling 15 million copies. How to Win Friends and Influence People is just as useful today as it was when it was first published, because Dale Carnegie had an understanding of human nature that will never be outdated. Financial success, Carnegie believed, is due 15 percent to professional knowledge and 85 percent to &quot;the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people.&quot; He teaches these skills through underlying principles of dealing with people so that they feel important and appreciated. He also emphasizes fundamental techniques for handling people without making them feel manipulated. Carnegie says you can make someone want to do what you want them to by seeing the situation from the other person's point of view and &quot;arousing in the other person an eager want.&quot; You learn how to make people like you, win people over to your way of thinking, and change people without causing offense or arousing resentment. For instance, &quot;let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers,&quot; and &quot;talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person.&quot; Carnegie illustrates his points with anecdotes of historical figures, leaders of the business world, and everyday folks. <p><br>

    most people who ask about the experiences of others should atleast have the respect for the fact that they have been where you may be going...oh- yea! read the label dummy

    Everyday I have to answer that question and also, the next common one: &quot;Does the grass need to be wet when I spread Pendimethalin or TeamPRO?&quot;. Often times I read the label aloud with my audience, in order to establish the rules of engagment into the pesticide application business (legal or not - since I do not have to police the industry, I sell non-restricted products to whomever will buy them). If I find that the label is incomplete, as yours evidently was, I produce a complete label for them, from the manufacturer, or the Internet sources. Therefore, no-one leaves un-educated. I have been very successful with this sort of approach, even competing against the chain stores. MOST (not all) people will do what you tell, or show them. If your supplier did not, perhaps you should encourage them to provide you with this type of information with each new product they supply to you. We also give licensing classes, and open houses during the year to help inform our customers so they can make educated decisions about their pesticide use. In addition, we give adult education classes at our shop to extend our services to the private community - this helps sales too!<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply -<br>Ivy League Landscaping -

    Better yet, take the class. Dale Carnegie's principles are a model in how people can successfully form honest and mutually beneficial relationships.

    How did you ever get a license with all due respect.

    have you ever done this before today?
