I really enjoy getting my chit chewed by the tax paying neighbor that knows he funded house next door.

"Why are you cutting the grass for the 3rd time when it hasn't even grown yet? You are ripping off the federal government!!! I'm going to turn you in!!!"

Here's a quarter and here's the number sir...

I would guess 50% of grass cuts in this business are UN-necissary.....

I'm at a state auction yesterday looking to pick up some equipment and the trailer park boys pull in with an ingenious bit of machinery following behind their hitch/"accessory hookup". I noticed an Indiana plate in the rear window and figured it was one of CL Hack's crews who were willing to travel any distance for quality.
They were interested in landscaping equipment and scrap metal.
Now while Missouri in known for their abundant numbers of utility trailer dealers, Indiana is known for their RV trailers. I'm going to guess these guys were from neither state (they never heard of the Frugal Hoosier) and maybe came over from Arkansas and the borrowed license plate just happened to be in the back of the window like the troll dolls and warped cds were.
If there is a chance you might in any way be confused with the contractors owning this outfit, you probably should be changing your business model and looking for better clients.

At one time I may or may not have

used a modified boat trailer to haul metal roofing. Luckily it was before the modern digital age.
