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:

h my nam is frnk and i leaves on the lawn nuts.... call me

stevef1201 11-09-2012 12:43 PM

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

Lopes Lawn Care 11-09-2012 04:35 PM

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.

hahahaha good one Doug. "Got nuts, call the Nut Gobbler"

CHEESE2009 11-10-2012 01:22 PM

Lmao
 
This is what I imagine the guy to look like...

http://costumefail.com/wordpress/wp-...an-Costume.jpg
"no nut left behind!"

willshome 11-10-2012 03:49 PM

I love when they list what few tools they have, way to look like a PRO

Lopes Lawn Care 11-10-2012 04:00 PM

hahaha I would definitely hire a guy that showed up in that costume. Just cause it would be the right thing to do.
