    I HAD a great account I was doing and I seen some start up going door 2 door with flyers while I was blowing off and ready to leave,sure enough got a call next day from my client saying she wants to end my services cause she found someone else who is gonna do it for $80 a month while I was charging her $140 a month! So I decided to see who this replacement is because she says they are gonna pressure wash her driveway today as a token of there appreciation.Guess who it is pressure washing her driveway with a lowes special the same illegals passing out flyers! They seen my staring at them and started talking spanish and laughing? I wanted to pull my Sig out and shoot everyone of them. Anyone else have similar experience? Its such bs but what can you do

    i need to learn spanish, because all too often they start speaking spanish and laughing. One day I want to say something back to them.

    If our government actually had a brain, they would formulate a plan to deport them all in one massive sting operation.

    You sure they are illegals? If so I would tell yourn former customer that she is breaking the law by hiring them. Won't do any good but she needs to know.

    Omg it's your own fault you even saw them going around by your own admission and you
    failed to do anything about it, so you had your chance now don't be mad you blew it.

    Oh well that was your chance!

    Hell most of the time I don't get that much, they sneak around after I am done, I don't see them coming but
    that's been going on for a long time, I guess my talking about it here didn't really hit home until now.

    One more thing...
    You pull that silly little peashooter on me you'd either be looking awful funny walking down the road with some
    pistola protruding out from your behind, or you'd be looking at 20 to life, either way you want it I don't care.

    You could have taken the flyer instead of leaving it.
