    I don't know what your definition of a scrub is, but from the looks of it, this "competitor" of mine (a local LCO) comes pretty close to my definition of one.

    Jim, where did you find him? On NE Portland, or Tigard or somewhere around Beaverton? or may be Lake Oswego neighborhood...or East side of Portland?
    I was once in NE Portland above Rose Garden Arena, very tough hood to say indeed, to visit my distant relatives. I heard gunshots in daytime!
    Beaverton and Lake Oswego are the nicest to live in I think, lots of landscaping job to do as Nike is in Beaverton.

    That picture was taken (while I was driving) right in the middle of Tigard. Tigard is a nice place, to be sure. But we still have some scrubs. I started out as one too. Only my setup looked probably worse than that one.

    Yah, Beaverton and Lake O. are great places to live. Tigard is equally as nice, though. NE Portland? Ouch! Yah, that's somewhere we never go. Stay outta that area.

    True...I would define this guy as a scrub in my book also. Do you really think the clients care though? I don't have any studies that back my thoughts, but I really think the client has two major concerns....thats price and quality. With appearance being down low on the list.

    Just a rambling!

    Yes, I think they do. At least, I think the people in the neighborhoods we work in care. I've seen this guy around town for a few years now. But I've NEVER seen him in one of the neighborhoods we work in. They wouldn't have it. Call them snobby or whatever. But I guarantee 99% of them would fire that guy if he showed up to their house like that.
