I would normally make fun of him if not for his son's charity event be cancelled due to no other available location for the event.

Sometimes ppl need a pro huh?

I don't feel sorry for him. He didn't even bother to read the front of the label & then called a news crew & tried to blame it on the people that make it.

I watched the video, but I wasn't really paying attention.

Did a guy he hired mess up the lawn, or him himself?

He did. Didnt read the bottle thoroughly and doused 2 acres of turf with grass killer. You'd never believe the grass died after he did that. Weird huh?

You know, even if I weren't in this business, I'd call him a dumbass.

You just know that there are people out there who will feel sorry for him because of the fundraiser thing and donate boatloads of money that he will then use to fix his screw up.

Definitly a dumbass. Who goes to the news and actually tells them that they f**-ed up so bad? Does he expect this company to pay for his lawn to be replaced? I mean I noticed the differance in the bottles. Maybe he can't read? Maybe he needs new glasses not a spot on the nightly news.

"I didn't pull out when I should have, my girlfriend is mad."

Not my fault, now give me money so I can take her shopping again.
