    last night i had a chuckle. gave a guy an estimate (he's next door to a prop i service) earlier this year, he smirked and said i was kidding, right? i told him no and waited for him to speak, same old crap, can you do better? nope. sorry. anyway, the guy is out destroying his lawn with a walk-behind edger. he finished about the same time as me, i asked him (nicely) "hello, what do you have going on there?" he replies that he heard areating was good for lawns, so he thought he'd give it a try. all i could say (nicely again) was "well, never hurts to try, have a good evening".

    no real point here, but thought maybe you guys would get a laugh as you imagine the scene.

    He was using a walk behind edger and he heard that a aerator is good?


    Boy o boy, I guess you don't have to worry about him taking to much business.
