    I have been thinking about stopping at the local shopping centers and putting my fliers on the cars in the parking lots. Does anyone else do this?

    I really don't think many people appreciate having their car monekyed around with like that. Besides, what types of homes are you targeting when you do that? You can't tell, so really it's just a lot of wasted effort.

    I would have to agree. In theory it sounds like a good idea, because you have so many cars in one location. However, I too feel that most people do not like it when someone fliers their vehicle.

    I haven't put them on cars, but did put a couple of stacks a local dry cleaners. That way if someone were interested they could take one and I would not waste money on the people who weren't interested. The only thing I didn't like about it was that I didn't know what kind of customer I had. A few were well kept up scale lawns and there were a few on the other end of the pole. My recomedation would be to target the type of lawn you would like to have and then place flyers at there doors.

    You may find yourself on litter patrol if the right ********** cop gets a hold of the trash on the ground.

    Last season I remember this was brought up, as someone had gotten complaints because he went and hit a church down the street from him. That didn't go over so well.....
