Heres a thread about all the funny advertisements and things we see out there of companies who just might fail if they keep it up. All funny comments/pictures are welcome! This should be interesting.


I was searching craigslist this morning to search and destroy competition. Here is what I came across....

"ARE YOU LOOKING FOR GOOD WORK AND LOW PRICES HIRE ARE THE DETAIL OF THE CERVICES THAT WI PROVIDE
GRASS MOWING/ CLEAN AP / BUSHES REMOVE / PATIOS / TRIMMING / EDGING / WALLS /MULCHING / SOD GRASS / FOR YOU FREE ESTIMATE JUST CALL AT 7** 2** **** THAKS FOR LOOKING"


Hmmmmm.....I'd certainly hire him.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
There is a local guy around here that uses an old beatup dump truck and a old beat up trailer, but has to brand spankin new john deere residential riders and an older residential rider. Every time I see him I think to myself, you could have bought a nice commercial mower for the price of all of them.

Reminds me of a good one....

There is a guy who I always see driving in my town. He has an old Uhaul 16' box truck with a half @$$ pee yellow paint job. EVERY time I see him at the 1 yard he mowes, his 1980's cub cadet lawn tractor is broken down in the front yard and he spends the next few hours with a wrench trying to fix it. This is the first year I've seen him around.

There is a guy in my town who rents a uhaul truck and trailer to now out of. I have only seen him at 4 yards. He has an old peace of junk walk behind he does not trim or blow off the drive way. The best part is he doesn't secure his mower and it just slides around the trailer.

I love on how craigslist, posters go out of there way to say not to waste their time with calls or emails or whatever they feel is a waste of their time. Take for instance this ad. Great example.
