  • Mixing politics with your lawn care invoice?

    What's your take on this? A lawn care company inserted a flyer in their invoice to solicit donations to an anti-abortion "charity?"

    Have you ever heard of this before?

    What's your take on mixing politics and business?

    Hey, You Got Your Abortion In My Lawn Care! - There are a staggering number of lawn-mowing services in this city, and we've used the same one for almost seven years.

    When I opened their latest bill last week, a flyer popped out, soliciting donations for an anti-abortion "charity."

    Wow. Didn't see that coming.

    My first thought was A lot of people mow lawns in this city. Within half an hour, my lawn mowning service was my ex-lawn mowing service, and I look happily forward to bills free of abortion politicking in the future.

    I would have had the same reaction if it had been a flyer soliciting donations for the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). It wasn't the position, it was the insertion of politics. Even a solicitation for a true, non-political charity would have have been fine. I just don't want politics mixed in with my grass clippings.

    Mixing political hot button issues with your bills is just asking to get fired. Never mix the two.

      I can't believe that I never read this before. That is just crazy! I make sure to never talk politics with customers.
