Firstly, your avatar makes me laugh every time I see it... LOL :D


Secondly, this guys "in no rush" to do the work, but he seems to be rushing his sentences quite a bit!

Also, do people really have "nuts" on their lawn that need to be picked up?!?!:confused:

My response If I lived in that area, would be - sure come on over and do this yard for me, I'll pay you 50 bucks (while I charge the homeowner 100)

He sounds so desperate that I think he would be willing to work for the nuts he finds in the lawns

Hahaha thanks man. That's Beavis the methhead. Its surprising what you find when you search google for "methhead". Been watching that show "Breaking Bad" to much lately too. lol

Yeah this dudes got time for your lawn and no time to get his spelling and grammar right. Not that I'm the best but if your gonna try to get customers at least "try" to get it right.

Steve, good idea on getting this bum to come out and do the work for you. Then again I don't think I'd want this dude on my customers properties. It's always funny to look through these ads and see how people present themselves.
